Re: looking for a new hunting rifle

Do you already own other rifles?

Or, will this be your first and only?

Re: looking for a new hunting rifle

Then, I would look for a good deal on a 300 Win Mag or 300 WSM.

There are lots of good rifle and scope choices with a huge price range.

Moderate price:
Remington Sendero, Winchester Coyote, Savage Long Range Hunter
Nikon, Bushnell, Vortex

High price:
Blaser, Cooper, Gunwerks
Leupold, Nightforce, Schmidt-Bender

What's your budget?
