I'd look at a Savage 11F in .308 or .243 or a Howa Lightning in the same caliber. You can order the Howa from Walmart for a good price, like $415 with a scope.

where can you get a T3 under $500? never been a fan of the 243 for deer. just not enough lead. get a 30-06, it is the most versatile round ever designed.

Eric K,

I have to agree with DA's choices, I personally have a Ruger 7mm Rem. Mag. I have seen deer shot with all three guns he mentioned.

Ammo is not cheap for the 06 or 7mm, unless you plan on reloading your own.

The 7mm will give you the range you are looking for and does have a decent variety of bullet weights available for reloading.
It will reach out there.

25-06, 260, or the 25-06 in either a rem 700 or Ruger M77. You will not be disapointed. Did I mention the 25-06?

I've always shot brownings until i bought a remington this year,
I think the rem. may out shoot the browning just a tad.
I'd go with DA's choices and in the same order but make sure you get the trigger worked,i had mine lowered to 2.5 lbs and it's the first time ever of doing so and it makes all the difference in the world.Lot easier to stay on target with a light trigger.
So all in all my thoughts are model 700 270 with the trigger worked.
And i own 4 Brownings.

if 243 too small a 270 would be great shoots flatter , faster and has less drop than a 30-06 130, 150 gr available. The 7mag has about an inch less drop at 300 yards , however you jump way up in foot lbs of kick.. I bought a cheap mossberg that walmart sells , freefloating barrel. put a nikon prostaff 450 total..
