My major uses for the gun are hunting things like deer and small game. I want something that will put a deer down in one shot but won't take half the meet out of a deer.

malmais,

After reading more of your interests and in particular on working on the guns may I suggest a Savage 110 type rifle that comes with that barrel nut so that you can adjust your own headspace and perhaps change barrels.

Also join the NRA.

Look on the NRA website for matches and clubs near you where you can shoot at a rifle range.

Here in CT we shoot all year round including winter matches every week!

I would love to but we don't have any rifle ranges anywhere near me.
