All, To the knowledgeable community...If I were to pick a brand (I know this will be contentious) of rifle & scope combo to have as an "all around" big game rifle for North America, which type - or brand, I should maybe say - of rifle and scope does everyone favor? I've decided that it will be a 30-06 for me, because it's probably the largest caliber that I can fire comfortably and confidently, and 80 different loads are made for it as well. Also, a laminated stock and maybe stainless steel the rest for extra weather resistance. So here begs my question...I'm looking for such a rifle, but wanted to get some opinions on what the community here prefers. I'm not looking to drop a mint, but less than 1000.00 for rifle and scope, if possible. As always, any input is greatly appreciated.
