I hope that I am posting this in the correct sub forum, as I wasn't sure if hunting or long rifles was correct. I am a frequent backpacker and camper (I usually go solo, its therapeutic for me), and get into some some tougher terrain. I currently own a Remington 710 that I received as a gift in 2002, and have barely used it simply because I have never enjoyed the .30-06 round (which is also unnecessary around these parts). What I am seeking out is a seriously tough, never die rifle that is accurate and of a light-ish weight. I abuse my rifles pretty bad, and would love some suggestions on where I should look. I am not stuck on the Remington brand either, though it would be a plus. I also feel it is important to mention that I could not afford anything really over 650 dollars (though I'm willing to consider higher prices). I would love to trade this 710, but that is for another sub forum. Thank you all for your time, Fletch.
