Ok so I know you all are into custom shop rifles and such but I would sure like some advice geared towards my wants/needs. I dont have a lot of money for custom shop rifles so I want to stick with just your typical brands...remington, savage, browning etc. I am looking to get a new deer rifle with lower recoil. MAX distance shooting would be 250-300 yards (most shots being <150 yards). So which brand and what cailber rifle would you get? Things to consider: 1.) availability of name brand ammo. Here in New york, unless the law is overturned for next year, we will ONLY be able to buy ammo at a store. (no more online sales) 2.) Durability. This will be a woods rifle (might get nocked around) so I was thinking possibly synthetic and maybe stainless? 3.) Recoil...I believe the 270 has lowest recoil and 308 has most but all probably feel similar? NOTE: I DO NOT intend on modifying the rifle so please dont say buy "this rifle" and then change "this" out and it will be great.
