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?
