Re: Good Beginner Gun! Please Look
I would lean towards the .270 win or 270WSM, 110-130 grain loads for Yotes, 150 grain for big game. Overkill for yotes, but so are the .25 cals.
Lots of good choices for a $325-$400 rifle with reputation for tight groups- Weatherby Vangard, TC Venture, Marlin XL-7, Savage edge, would be my choices in that order. For a little more money the Tikka's are real tight shooters.
If you don't reload, stick with the 270win or 25-06.
