Hello all! I previously posted a thread about a survival takedown rifle. After much concideration I’m thinking of getting a higher caliber hunting rifle. Here is the Indiana Deer Hunting Law: Firearms: Shotguns, handguns, centerfire rifles with legal cartridges, muzzleloading long guns and muzzleloading handguns are legal during the firearm season. Only muzzleloading firearms are legal during the muzzleloader season. It is illegal to have a silencer while hunting. Laser sights are legal for hunting deer. Hunters may carry more than one type of legal firearm when hunting during the firearm season only. Shotguns must be 10-, 12-, 16- or 20- gauge or .410 bore loaded with slugs or saboted bullets. Rifled slug barrels are permitted. Combination rifle-shotguns are not allowed. Muzzleloading firearms must be .44 caliber or larger, loaded with a single bullet of at least .357 caliber. Saboted bullets are allowed, provided the bullet is .357 caliber or larger. a muzzleloading firearm must be loaded from the muzzle. Multiple-barrel muzzleloading long guns are allowed. Rifles with cartridges that fire a bullet of .357-inch diameter or larger; have a minimum case length of 1.16 inches; and have a maximum case length of 1.625 inches are legal to use only during the deer firearm season. Some cartridges legal for deer hunting include the .357 Magnum, .38-.40 Winchester, .41 Magnum, .41 Special, .44 Magnum, .44 Special, .44-.40 Winchester, .45 Colt, .454 Casull, .458 SOCOM, .475 Linebaugh, .480 Ruger, .50 action Express, and .500 S& I know I don’t want a shotgun, and handguns- that’s another thread. Can any of you recommend a good bolt action rifle in the calibers that are underline above. Remember it's still meant to be used as a survival rifle, but also mainly for hunting. I like the Ruger GSR .308 which has a mag that holds 10 rounds, but i dont think those are legal to hunt deer here in Indiana. Any suggestions!?
