A used Remington 700 ADl or SPS would be a money friendly choice.

I did carry my fathers old 721 Remington in 30/06 on many a hunt in the 1980''s now my brother carries it on his farm for deer .

Back when i was hunting with the old 721 all my hunting buddies carried 742 Remington woodsmasters in 30/06 and we killed many deer in Cheatham and then Hickman county after land got so hard to get permission to hunt on in Cheatham county. Cheatham county was the hot spot at first as it was the first place in Tennessee that they stocked the deer at . I still have a 742 Remington woodsmasters in 270 Winchester caliber that did belong to a now dead hunting buddy of mine. He killed many deer in Colorado and in Hickman county Tennessee with that rifle.
The rifles are so good that they last more than a lifetime and get passed down from fathers to sons , may it always be so. May the rifles and old Case knives and swords and such be allways passed to the sons of America from there fathers.

Not fancy but shoots good with a good trigger.

I have a Mossberg ATR IN 30-06 and a Remigton ADL in .243. Both guns are very accurate. The Mossy was 100.00 cheaper and does just as well as anything I have used. This includes Tikka's and Browning A bolts...

Thanks guys.... I checked out a ATR in .308 the other day... action seemed better than the low end remmy...I really am not looking for an heirloom at this point... I just am wanting a new deer rifle this point in the season I will probably just pull out my Grand-daddys thuty-thuty and go old school with the iron sights or I may just stick to the bow... but i appreciate the input... You know you can stand in the gun section of a store for hours and still not make a decision... \:\)

For an inexpensive gun,my son just bought a new Howa in .308 with a Houge stock. I always like the Weatherby Vanguards for the price and Howa as we all know builds them. I've never really looked at the Howas much though but I gotta say for a $400 gun out the door I'm impressed with the workmanship. Bolts smooth and locks up tight,no machine marks I can find,good adjustable trigger breaks clean and crisp,stock has a good feel to it.
