Deer Hunting Rifles
I get numerous questions asking about the best rifle-caliber combinations for deer hunting. Which rifle is the best? What caliber should I use? What type of rifle is the most accurate? Well, that’s an easy one to answer — all of them. I’ve seen deer taken with just about every rifle-caliber combination imaginable, and I personally have used most of them to put meat in the freezer. So which one should you use to hunt North America’s favorite big game animal? To answer this you must look at several factors to include you budget and the terrain you will be hunting. You can get a new lever-action for $350 to $700. These include the Marlin, Rossi, Savage and Winchesters in .30-30, .35 Remington, .308, .30-06, .44 magnum, .444 Marlin and .45/70. If heading to the woods with a cowboy gun isn’t your thing, you could go for a bolt-action for $389 to $700. Here, the selection is larger to include Remington, Savage, Marlin, Winchester, Ruger, Howa, Browning and Weatherby in just about every caliber imaginable. If you decide you need quick follow-up shots, you can purchase a semi-automatic sporting rifle for $500 to $900. Browning, Marlin, Remington and Ruger are some of the companies known for good-quality automatics. Like bolt-actions, these are also available in many calibers. I didn’t mention single-shots like the rolling and falling block rifles, but these are also available for $800 to $2,500. EMF imports Italian reproduction Sharps; Navy Arms imports and Dixie Gun Works import Sharps and Rolling Blocks. These are fine quality weapons in .45/70 caliber and one of my all time favorite cowboy shooters. Browning is also in the competition with two excellent modernized breechloaders — a low- and a high-wall model. Unlike the others, these can be had in many calibers. Of course there is the infamous Ruger No. 1, which is still being produced in everything from varmint to elephant gun calibers. As you can read, there are many rifles available to fit every budget, but that’s only half of the equation. The other side of buying a new deer rifle is contingent upon the terrain you will hunt. It doesn’t do any good to use a .30-30 if your shots are in the 200+ plus range; just as using a 7mm Rem. Mag. for 50 yard shots is the wrong choice (.30-30 can reach it, but the energy remaining is considered minimal at this range — 7 mm will normally punch right through at 50 yards and the deer will keep moving many times).
