I went hunting last week and killed a dear. I was using a freind's rem 30-06. I am looking to buy my own dear rifle, but I don't really know alot about them. I am more of an ar-15 type of guy. What is a good round to use? My buddies tell me to get a .300 mag. I know at work we use a rem mod 700 in .308, but that is for sniping people not deer. What is a good rifle to get for the $ and give me some input on scopes. thanks in advance from a city boy.
