30-30 with lever revolution ammo would do trick
13Bravo, first of all welcome to the forum and stop over in the intro section and say hello. second, thank you for your service to our country, it's much appreciated.i am currently delyed and im looking for a good deer rifle..i havent gotten out much the past three years due to being in the army and havent really caught up on the new rifles..but im getting out after this deployment..the college im going to has alot of public hunting land..im looking for something i can just pick up and go with a coupe buddies on the fly (after a good sight in)..obviously im trained in taking a 300m/about 275 yard shotwith a m4 with an acog..which if you ever get the chance avoid acogs ..in my opinion they are useless after 100 meteres ..just not acurate..ive read up alot and all i see is the remington 770 is junk..no surprise there with new ownership in the last few years..and ive read alot of good things about the marlin xl7 and the new savage deer rifles..im looking for something under $500..and indiana deer hunting is mostly done in light -mildly dense woodland..im looking for opinions on which rifle would be better suited for 150 yd shots and below..with a good barrel weight..and any opions on scopes under $200..hope i gave enough info..and i you can please send out a care package for a soldier this holiday season..i know a few battle buddy;s out here who have no family and arent recieving any care packages..theyd appreciate it..
I second this post. The .270 is a deer killing machine and has the capability to reach on out there.Xl7 chambered in 270 with a Burris 3x9x50 scope would be my choice. With this setup taking a deer up to 300 yards is effortless.
Marlin here as well savage is not the only accurate gun, the end.+1 for the Marlin!
but half a point for a 2nd hand rifle that you may know a bit about eg friends friend with a good reputation for light use of the rifle eg sight in an do a few seasons.
an be slightly more open about calibre.
