At some point, you're going to have to do some of your own research, but
with the Mosins, they're Russian 5 shot bolt-action. Their ballistics,
with 150 grain FMJs, are approximate to the 30.06. Their two most
popular models are the 91-30, and the M44. The 91-30(@90$) is full-length,
and more accurate, the M44(@160$), is shorter, more of a carbine.
Cheapest ammo you can find out there, too.(440 round "spam cans" @85$)
Mosin-Nagants are the very least expensive way to go.
AK47s, in the 500$ range, are not that accurate, or hunter-friendly, with intermediate
7.62 X 39 ammo. (which is also inexpensive)
AR15s are more accurate, cost a lot more,
but are chambered generally with 5.56 (magnum .22) ammo, which may be
small, depending on what you're hunting. Any semi-auto in
Florida has to have a 5-round limit, in one way or another.
If you don't like Milsurp, Remington, Ruger, or Savage bolt-actions
may be what you want. You may want to consider buying used,
if you are on a tight budget.
