    Remington 700 in .270. That caliber will be able to take all the animals you stated.

    Go to your local pawn shop and check out their rifles,especially with today's economy.
    Don't pay the asking price, get 'em to come down!

    I would most definatly agree with the remington 700 in '06. Or possibly a remington 710 in .270?

    Best gun for the dollar would be a Savage bolt gun. depending on how close you get to the action in hog hunting you might want something with a little faster follow up. one of the new Marlins in 308 or 338 Marlin would be a good choice for fast follow ups and shots out to 200-250. I have a Marlin guide gun in 45-70 which is overkill on most anything and fairly short range 150-200 yards max (and yes I know buff hunters shot them a lot farther but I don't shoot animals the size of Hondas )

    Just my $.02

    Remington Model 700 30.06, hands down. Can be picked up for around $450 new, and with a decent scope, you'll be set for life.

    If you want a rifle to use as a tool get a Savage for 550 or a Marlin at 330. I'm partial to 30-06.

    You can get a Stevens Model 200 for around $400. It may not be a pretty rifle, but it is made by Savage Arms and is noted for out-of-the-box accuracy. The Model 200 is avalible in several long action cartridges, including 25-06 and 30-06.

    Get ya a 30-06 bolt gun that feels good to you and remember they all shoot pretty much MOA now days out of the box. From Jacks to Mule Deer 130’s work fantastic and Elk, a good Nosler 180 will do the trick!

    Look at the Marlin HL7, Savage 116 (Stainless) and the Tikka T3

    30.06 will bring down any game animal in North America and will shoot (sited at 100 yrds) flat with a 1" drop at 150 yrds and 3" at 200 yrds.

    Some will say the 300 win mag, which is an awesome weapon and shoots much flatter then the 30.06. However, I feel its bit overkill and the round can really damage the meat of the average sized deer and definitley will obliterate a hog.

    If I were taking 300 yrd shots or more i.e. mid-west States and rocky mountain areas, 300 win mag would suit me better there. F & S, posted an article I believe in the Dec issue where one of their writers brought his 30.06 to Africa and did very well there, harvesting rather large game.

    It all depends on the ammo at that point, which with this caliber there are more available in many varieties and in more places. For deer I use a 150 grain round, Elk 180 grain, I've not hunted for hog, but a 120 grain round would do the trick just fine.

    I picked up Marlin's newer Model XL-7 (30.06) under $350. It's lightweight due to the synthetic stock which allows me to hold it true on long distant shots.
