.223 bolt action
 
I am wanting a decently priced bolt action. I have a savage axis .308 but it's a little to much power for what the places I hunt. Any help would be appreciated. I'm right handed, target shoot on weekends. My farthest shot will be around 300 yards

Marlin recently added a .223 varmit barrel rifle to its line up of X bolt action rifles. Decently priced. Should be a good shooter, has an adjustable trigger. Worth a look. Have a couple of the Marlin X rifles myself and for an inexpensive rifle they shoot pretty good.

Sako makes some great little .223s.

In alot of states 22 caliber cartridges are illegal to deer hunt w. Most states will only let you use 243/6mm and larger.

Plz plz plz do not hunt deer with a 223 I know I will get bast for this but i dont care a 223 is a varmint caliber not a deer caliber I know there is goin to be people saying I hunt deer with a 223 and it drops them on the spot and shot placement is key Idc a 223 is to SMALL for deer go with a 243 and up heck the 243 is way better then a 223 you can hunt deer with good true deer rounds then after deer season rip so yote apart with some 55 gr ballistic tips but plz don't use a 223 for deer they was made for varmints size game NOT medium or big game just my opinion

I've killed several deer with a .223 but prefer a 22-250 if I'm going to use a high speed varmit rifle. Its about what your comfortable shooting, and making a clean ethical kill. I think their even making rounds suitable for deer for the 22-250 now to.

Ruger M77 Hawkeye | Remington 700 | Win Model 70 | Browning Stalker 2. All bolt actions all havee .223 models, personally? I'd go with the Ruger but that's because I'm gay for ruger.

I have no problem with you having your opinion, and I don't give a **** what you shoot a deer or anything else with. I didn't even comment on your choice of caliber.

But think about it; if you cannot be bothered to even try to use proper punctuation, spelling & grammar, you look like a dumbass. Do you think people hold a dumbass's opinion in the highest regard?
