For me I think Remington 700,in 308 special purpose rife with a bull barrel on it. Which I just got order for me at bulleyemarksman I'm hoping it should be here Monday,I love my old C&R guns I hunt with but I needed a real upgrade.But the savage are nice but I hate that look of the barrel where that nut is joining the receiver to the barrel.

I love my 700 270. Just picked up a 770 300 mag, i'm going to shoot it some more to gain confidence with it. Probably still shoot my 270 this year. Just can't beat it!

Marlin 1894P in .44 mag with a 1.5 X 4.5 scope. Best deer rifle I've ever owned. Have killed many truck loads with it.

The one you shoot best. For me it is a Browning A-Bolt in 7mm that I glass bedded 20 years ago. But only if I shoot the correct handloads. Otherwise it shoots 2 inch groups at 100 yrds.

Remington Mountain LSS in .260. I have a Zeiss Diavari 3 x 9 on it and I think is just about a perfect rig for Whitetails. Lightweight, fairly compact, enough power without over doing it. The only time when I don't use that rifle is when I am hunting a power line or clear cut. I take my BDL in .300 Win when I think I will get a shot over 300 yds.

I got a old Remington 788 308. I had about every gun in the deer hunting world. Killed more deer with the 308 than any other gun. It's not a 200 yard shot gun but 150 yards or less it's deadly! My Browning Bar 30-06 is nice and use it sometimes in open fields, but I'm a woods hunter and "NOTHING" beats my old 788!

Being a gun nut I spend way too much cash on hunting rifles. However my favorite is the cheapest gun I own it's an old Remington Sportsman 78 in 270 cal. (the K-Mart 700) the Winchester super X silvertip 130 grain (not the ballistic st) is hard to beat. I've also taken lots with a vintage WWII 303. British.
