Hunting rifle
 
If you could pick any deer rifle and scope what would you get also I'm looking for a rifle for my girlfriend to hunt deer and hogs with me what would you guys get for the lady she's about 5'6 140 lbs med frame I've got 2,000 to spend on the gun and scope

I missed the the $2000 budget, there we have Win. Mod. 70 Super grade in .308. You'll have to buy used and shop around, but it can be done.
As far as scopes, I would suggest Leupold VX-III, 2.5-8 power. I don't know what the range is for the hogs, but if it's close, you might even want to go to the 1.5 to 6 power.

Get her a Remington model 7 CDL in .243 or 7mm-08. I love the Winchester model 70 Super grade but I don't think it comes in short actions? Any quality scope will work, but I would recommend a 3x9x40 or 4x16 for longer distances. :)

Savage Axis XP in .223, under $400.00 bucks & you will have a very good rifle.....................

+1 on the Savage Axis Or Axis XP (XP includes mounts and a 3-9x40 Bushnell) in your choice of caliber. Then upgrade your optics to whatever you want and still save some money. Otherwise if you insist on spending more or just don't care for the Axis upgrade to one of Savage's other models (10, 11, 12, 14, 16)

+1 again on the axis. If you have the money get a trigger job maybe even a better one and bed the thing to help with longer shots. Put a 3-9 40mm leopuld on there and you should be well under 2 grand.

If you want "higher class" gun, then get one of the stainless tikka models or even a ruger m77.

For a girl of her size i would suggest .243 up to a 30-06 depending on how comfortable she is with recoil.

Wow, it's nice to see so many Axis fans as opposed to the usual crowd of 'bashers' who have never bothered to hold one because 'it's just a cheap rifle so it must be crap'. Lol
