For hunting and jsut for the hell of having them.
I think I would spend a few extra dollars and get something that will last a lifetime, rather than a cheap rifle "for the hell of it"
For a budget rifle, I have heard many good things about the Marlin XL7 series.
Well I meant cheap in the sense of being cheap, but still reliable. An m1a is way out of my price range, my price range is more around $500-$700
You can get many good rifles in that range, as I said the Marlin XL7 is a good rifle, I also like the Ruger M77 rifles and the Remington 700s. There are a ton of others.
Stay away from the Remington 770s, I have some experience with them, they are not very good rifles, very cheaply made.
What about one of the Marlin lever actions? I've always wanted a lever action gun, or am I better off sticking to bolt action and semi-auto?
A lever action 30-30 is a great option, but I would consider finding a used Winchester or Marlin, the older rifles are of higher quality than new ones. The 30-30 is not a long range round but it is hard to go wrong with it for a general purpose rifle.
I have a 700 sps in .308 and I love it. It eats everything I feed it . Believe it or not even core lokt shoots well . Bought mine bout 6 years ago for 420 nib.
Remington 700 or Winchester Model 70 are hard to beat.
For a light, handy rifle take a hard look at the little Remington model 7.
Good cheap rifle savage axis , My axis is a .223 but you can cover 3 shot 100 yard groups with a dime using cheap UMC ammo
I talked to my buddy and he said he's trying to sell his SKS, I don't know how good an SKS is for hunting though in terms of accuracy and range. I'm mainly interested in hunting deer. He said he'd sell me the rifle and a few hounded rounds for around $350
The SKS with the right ammo is a good deer rifle out to 100-150 yards, they are also great range rifles.
Depending on condition, 350 isn't a bad price.
Savage very well priced (cheap) even for their upper level models but have always heard they are one of the most accurate off the shelf rifle available. Heres one with a scope mounted... probably not the best scope
H&R or NEF single shots. Under $300 and extremely reliable. Lots of caliber choices. Their 223 has a 1:9 twist and I tried to talk them into chambering it for the 5.5x45 instead of the 223. I am going to check with a gunsmith about a re-chamber to Wilde or 5.56x45. I have one in 357 magnum. Remove the hand guard and the barrel comes off so it will fit in a very small package. You can also get them with interchangeable shotgun barrels.
An sks is an excellent hog gun and close in deer gun but if your looking for range go with a remington 700
