Hey guys this may sound strange and I think i might get alot of flak for it but here it goes. I bought a weatherby vangaurd in .270 and I thought it would be a good gun but for me i find it to big and almost to much of a kick then i would like. I have since bought a few long guns, one a mossberg lever action .30-30. I am thinking of trading my vanguard in for something in a smaller round closer to the .30-30. I have been looking into a few stevens and savage rifles and would like to invest in something that will last as I am 25 and plan to do alot of hunting. I have looked into the .223 ,.243, 22-250, 23-06, 308. I would also like a left hand model if possible due to right handed works but sucks to be left handed lol. Anyway any help would be great. Im not new to guns just not very fimilar with rifle cartridages.
