Not in any Particular order.
-Tikka T3
-Winchester Model 70
-Remmington 700 VLS
-Ruger M77 Sporter
-Browning X-Bolt

I also found a few interesting used riffles online
1941 N1 Mark III Lee Enfield for $300
Swedish Mauser m38Carbine 6.5×55 -300$
Im a little nervous about the above 2 due to lack of experience with guns and im sure they will need modifications. They are both posted as Excellent condition.

My Uncle recommended the Marlin 444 Lever. I have never fired a lever action before so i might hold off on that one unless someone sway me otherwise.

The No1MkIII is a classic. Not a rifle you'd want to sporter. The M38 Swedish Mauser is also a classic and dead accurate without a scope. 6.5x55 is an awesome round. Very low recoil. It is worth more in original military configuration. It is a great Moose slayer. There are quite a few commercail used Swede's in Canada. Look for a Mauser, FN, Argentine sporter also. You can find them for short cash and they are excellent.

Awesome, Thank you for all the help! I will make sure I post a picture of whatever I end up getting. There is a lot to chose from.

Cheers!
