I am new to the gun purchasing game and want to join my friends by owning a rifle that is flexible for both deer(mostly) and rabbit/varmints (.243 or 270 win?). I can spend up to $850-900 and I also want to make sure I am buying a rifle that will hold a fair amount of its value. Of all the manufacturers and their models: Beretta Tikka T3 T/C Icon or Venture Remm 700 Ruger M77 Browning X-bolt Win Model 70 Any others(?) I understand that many of these guns will serve me well and it is more the shooter than his weapon, but my question is which of these would represent a quality/reliable rifle and a good investment? and if any, is there anything that is a ripoff and should be avoided?
