what rifle for me??

and once you start anticipating recoil you will flinch and not hit anything. for a first time rifle start with the 270 and learn to shoot it first.

whitetail rifle

if all your going to be hunting is whities then all you really need is a 6mm, .25, or a 6.5mm bullet, probly not much over 100 or so grains. 243 win, 6mm-06, 240 wby mag, 25-06, 25wssm, 257 rob, 257 wby mag, or the 260 rem. my personal choice of that list is the 257 wby mag. if a weatherby is a little rich for your blood the 25-06 is just about right.

forget all the others just buy a 280rem and be happy it can handle anything you are going to hunt till you move to a bigger caliber.
