What is a inexpensive and reliable rifle for big game hunting in North America?

Recommended Posts

Also I would like something where the ammo is readily available, it is hard for me to find bullets for my mauser and they are getting more expensive.

why not reload for the mauser? You could get reloading for as much or less than a decent rifle. The mauser action is about the best bolt action ever made and the 8mm round has been used to kill about everything on the plannet short of elephant...

I personally am a fan of the .300 win mag, but if your looking for something where the ammo is cheaper, the .30-06 would be a great choice. You can find a load combo for pretty much everything in N. America. If your OK with buying a used gun, I would do that. Then spend as much as you can afford on a good scope. Otherwise I would be looking at some Savage/Reminigton rifles. That Stevens Tucker recommended Is built by savage and would be a great, no frills hunting rifle. I know the MSRP is over $400, but all the local gun stores sell them for under $300.

 

As far as scopes go, I would be looking at a Leupold VX-3 or Nikon as they would probabkly be in your budget.

Savage makes great rifles. 449.00-500.00 range will get you an out of the box rifle that shoots like a dream. Stevens rifles don't have the accutrigger (I don't think anyways) and its well worth the money for a good trigger.

A lot of the Stevens model 200's come equipped in a package around here, you usually find them mated with a Tasco or Bushnell scope. I would preferr to just purchase the gun and put a better quality scope on it.

 

From what I have heard this model shoots very nicely right out of the box.

I thought accuracy is in the hand of the shooter? lol.

 

So someone could shoot an inaccurate rifle accurately just because of their hand :confused:
