Apparently this can't be a good choice because it has a removable box magazine and some experts here will call you a mall ninja and tell you you are not a hunter.

And someone please explain to me how you can upload a rifle with a blind mag without chambering each round?

Good to hear you are done. I took it to a stupid level? I was not the one calling folks names and telling them they are not hunters if they carry more than three rounds.

The only thing I did was make the mistake in replying to your none sense.

in a way you did. the thread was about what's best for a beginning hunter, not a veteran hunter. and when i first started hunting as a youngster, my father gave me three rounds of ammo. he felt that was all i needed. and he was right, because i never used more than one round!

how many rounds do you really need for deer hunting? IMO, if you need more than one or two, then you really need to spend some more time at the shooting range, and practicing.

Yes. And I simply stated my opinion that a removable mag or floor plate is safer for a beginner since there is no need to cycle each round to unload.

And in many locations carrying more than 3 rounds is a matter of preparedness. I've hunted some very remote places where my only way home was hoping the pilot does not forget about me. Carrying only two or three rounds is foolish to say the least.

To say that in order to be a hunter, you can only carry a certain amount of ammo is assinine.

My first deer hunt was in a very remote area near mount Rogers in western Virginia. We were a few hours walk from the vehicles and an hour drive from camp. Everyone carried a extra box of ammo in their packs. I'm pretty sure there were some "real hunters" out there some where.

I've already grown tired of the bickering in this thread. Its really not conducive to helping out the OP.

frankly, i see the blind mag a non-issue with most bolt actions, as the bolt can be cycled with the safety on. and using proper gun handling habits makes it further a non-issue IMO. i learned at an early age with blind magazine rifles, so what is your point?

I'm going to add my voice for 30-30, scoped or not. In fact, since the 30-30 has a much more limited range than .243, .270, .308, 7mm-08...oh the list of longer range rounds could go for awhile...since the 30-30 has a more limited range, aperture sights are a great choice for a 30-30.

I have chosen a Marlin 336 with Skinner aperture sights. Granted, I'm not going to be shooting across the valley with this, but I can still fill my tags.

What's my point?

I gave an opinion to the subject. Nothing more. Nothing less.

You seem to have problems with any opinion that does not match your own and have to restort to name calling and cutting down others that do not agree with you.
