i'm new to hunting and am trying to decide on buying a new rifle. i've done lots of research and i think i've narrowed my choices down to either a bolt-action savage, remington 710, or weatherby vanguard.
all are available in both .270 and 30-06, although i'm strongly leaning towards a 30-06. and all are available in package deals where they come mounted and bore sighted with a 3-9x40 scope. prices are pretty reasonable to me, being in the $450 to $650 range.
i know there's lots of advice and experience on this forum. any recommendations between those choices and calibers? if i had to pick a frontrunner, i'd say i was probably looking most closely at the savage in 30-06.
of course i could probably be sweet talked into other options....
i see lots of "newbies" on this site getting good advice on what are probably very basic questions to a lot of you. just wanted to say thanks on behalf of all of us "newbies". very kind of a lot of you to pass on your thoughts and experiences to us beginners.
