I'd say the Enfield mark 3 I've got one, it's heavy but heavier the gun the less recoil felt meaning you'll put your sights on target faster there good guns if you find one with out a burnt out barrel I'm abile to get a 6 inch group a 300 yards iron sight bench rest at the range

Yeah, and the ammo is @$85.00 for 440 rounds. You can't beat it.

They also have a M44 variant of the Mosin-Nagant 91-30.

Carbine sized, with a built-in bayonet. Big fun in a small package.

A 91-30, and 440 rounds, with tax and FDLE & FFL fees, less than

225$. That's about as inexpensive as it gets.

It would help if we knew what you were going to hunt. The Mosin is a great shooter and cheap ammo. If the weight is too much, replace the stock with a synthetic stock. That will lighten it up considerably. Also a few different companies are making scope mount kits if you ever decice you want to mount a scope. If you do remember that you may have to modify the bolt handle.

I agree with the Mosin being a $ for $ great deal. FMJ ammo is as inexpensive as it gets but I don't know how Michigan laws are, I don't think it's legal to hunt with FMJs in Pa. Hunting ammo is not so cheap. That being said, Mosins are a Hoot to Shoot with a Boot.

Personally, I'm wondering if you can get a rifle with a little more style than the Mosin or Enfield. Are there lever-action rifles that are less than $300?

[QUOTE=jpattersonnh;578442]I keep reading about Mosin nagants shooting better w/ the bayonet attached. What model was it? I have a number of 91/30's and not one shoots better w/ the bayonet attached. I gave my son a Hungarian M44 that is a great shooter, without the bayonet extended.

I haven't run into this myself either, but the theory is that the russians of the time had the rifles sighted in with the bayonet extended because the only time it was acceptable to remove the bayonet was when in a vehicle. Mine shoots great without the bayonet and I don't live in a war zone, so the only time my bayonet gets attached is to show it off.

A Marlin 336 30-30 is about what would fit the bill here.

Rifle of the year is the new Ruger Gunsight Scout. Iron sights, but not cheap though.

The Enfield would suit you just fine or a Mauser might fit the bill too.
