Thinking about getting a new deer rifle ready before next season. Wondering what you guys think between a few different rifles. Note that I am still young and have plenty of time to build up some nice rifles when I really have the money. The three I'm thinking of are a Ruger American in 30-06, browning xbolt or Remington 700 in 7mm Remington mag. The obvious choice for quality would be the rem or browning, but dropping nearly a grand on a new rifle doesn't sound that great. My current deer rifle is a 700 in 308 but it has a bull barrel making it a little to heavy to shoot standing while running brush. I'd match the rifle up with a leupold vx series, not sure exactly which one. Preferably a 4x12x40. What do you guys think?
