I want a well priced rifle in the $450 and under range. I am just going to use it for Whitetails and cayotes. What should I buy?

        Reminington model 700. I would go for a 243 or a 270. Good gun, good price!

          I would look for a Remington 740, 7400 760 7600 in 30-06. You can use larger bullets 150-165-180 grain for deer and drop down to 125 grain bullets for coyotes. If you look a little bit you can usually find these guns for around 300 to 350 bucks. They are light, fast handeling and very accurate. You just cannot beat the 30-06's versatility. Unless you buy two guns.

            Marlin XL7 is getting good press in F&S.
            Not to disagree with above, but to add 25-06, 260Rem, 7mm-08, 27oWin, 280Rem, .308Win.
            I have a .243Win and a 30-06Spr, so I would use the .243 for coyotes and the 30-06 for elk, if I hunted for them. I would use either for deer.

              hornady lever evolution is doing some great things with the trusty old 30-30. you could by a great used marlin 336 for that price. i would be interested to know if you have found many new rifles that are that affordable. good luck.

                My wifes cousin just bought one of those savage combo deals. It is well priced and it is a straight shooting gun. If you want to shoot coyotes with it and the biggest game you are going after is deer I'd get a 243 or a 25-06. Personnally I'd get the 243 just because it seems like ammo is available in more places.

                  Buy a Savage 110/111 or the Marlin XL7 in .25/06, .270, 7mm/08, .308, or .30-06

                    $450 and under Remington 700? Good luck...

                    Savage, Marlin, and Tikka will outshoot them and cost you less.

                    Marlin XS7 .243 or 7mm-08 for under $400. In camo even. Would be great for those yotes and their evil eyes. .25-06 would be a perfect caliber in the XL7, but Marlin has said they had problems with getting MOA or Sub-MOA accuracy (like the rest of their bolt guns do) with that caliber. The .270's shoot very well, though.

                        To the "Remington" people - Asked for UNDER 450.00 not OVER (lol).
                        Savage has some NICE package deals(rifle/scope combo's) that will fit the bill here.
                        Lots of choice's too !

                            Sorry Remington addicts he said under $450. The 700 in its many formats is the most over priced rifle on the market.

                            Look at the Marlin HL7 in 25/06. You won't be sorry!

                              Beekeeper - YES! You are a full on genius. Like me ha ha.

                              Well...except that I hear that Marlin has had trouble with that great caliber. Shame. Oh well. Everything else they put out shoots excellently.

                              "Remington addicts" - HAHAHAHA.

                              Hey why is the sky blue? Remington 700.

                              Where can I buy cheap books? Remington 870.

                              What load should I use for deer? Remington.


                              JEEZUM. Drones.

                              Hey that's funny because drones are bees.
