I'm looking to get into hunting. For several reasons (not least of which is the fact that I already own a couple of older rifles in the same caliber), I'd like to acquire a hunting rifle in .30-06. Thing is, I'm more used to shooting handguns than rifles, especially non-tactical rifles. I have read a little about the Ruger American, and of course am aware of the Remington 700+ series of rifles. My budget only allows for somewhere in the neighborhood of $300 - $400, which I don't think should be an impossible number? I'm a very decent shot (not an expert), and would like a rifle that will outshoot me by a bit so I have some room for improvement. I'd appreciate any thoughts y'all would like to offer. I don't really get involved in discussions around here because I don't often have knowledge to add. I've learned a lot in my lurking, though, and I'd appreciate some feedback. Thanks for your time.
