My favorite rifle for deer hunting is my 30-year-old Winchester model 70 and 3006, nothing special at all but it has taken a mountain of deer

I’m right there with you. I have a 1951 .270 Win M70 that I’m outfitting with a fast twist 20” barrel and having Chad @ LRI run through. Gonna run some 150gn solids and that’s gonna be my “go to” for the majority of my Hunting.

So many, but, I'd have to say as an out and out Deer rifle and the one that I shot my biggest Whitetail buck with, hunting in Winchester Idaho, well... it's my Winchester 1894 .30 WCF circa 1942 and it's mint as well accurate as all get out for a lever rifle using 170gr FN bullets. What can I say; just call me old school. Cheers

Mine is an old Remington M700, my brother shoots an old Win 70. They do the trick! Both are 30-06

Dad bought us rifles for our 16th birthdays. Still hanging on to them today. :)
