I enjoy hearing what other hunters use for their rifles. I currently use a Savage model 111 in 30-06, with a Simmons 44 mag scope on it. It isn't expensive, and it isn't pretty, but it gets the job done in spades. It's accurate, and tough. I don't have to worry about putting scratches on it in the wilds. And, it feels like part of my body when I shoot it, like an old friend. My other rifle is a Browning A bolt in .270 Winchester with a Leopold 2.5-8x gold ring scope. It's very light weight, and fast to get on target. Also, a very accurate rifle. It's a bit shiny though, and I cringe when I put a scratch on her. Sorta like a pretty young lady, ya wanna be nice to her. So, she goes with me when I can be a bit more careful, like when I'm stand hunting. I'm confident with both rifles.
What do ya'll use for your hunting?
