Hello: My name is Clay and I am from Alabama. I developed an interest in long range hunting and stumbled across the sight during researching the subject online. I'll admit, I have read a lot of threads since I found and joined the sight; I just never joined in until now. What really prompted me to post is I am ready to buy my first rifle for LR and would like some input as to which caliber to start with. I am primarily going to hunt deer, hogs & coyotes. Yet I do have aspirations of going Bear Hunting some day. I have killed black bears with my bow, but would like to try something bigger with my future rifle. Anyone have some suggestions? I going to start with out of the box rifle. Either a Remington Sendero ii or a Savage 111 LRH although I am leaning towards the Remington.
