Hello new member here. I have been considering buying a new rifle. I am looking to get a one rifle does most. I was set on a bolt gun in 308, but with everyone buying and hording all the .223/5.56 and .308 ammo. I would like to stay away from those calibers for supply sake. No I don't reload currently. The rifle I am considering will definitly spend more time on the range than hunting or varmit slaying. Not saying I wont be hunting with it, but I now live where white tail and mule deer are the largest animals that I might hunt with this rifle. I have a .223 for smaller varmits. I don't have any interest in hunting for any animals where I would be considered part of the food chain. I was thinking about either .243 or .270 in either a Savage 11/111 or Remington 700. Just no longer sure of the caliber. I don't see my self doing many 1000 yd target shots, but would probably be doing intermediate distances on a range. The budget is a beer type of a budget, but not generic. Thanks for any info. not sure if I gave the needed information.
