Default .30-.30

So I am In the market and really want the Henry but the price tag is to much for me right now. What are you guys thoughts on the Marlin or Rossi? I am leaning towards this but it will be my first .30-.30 so I would like so advice. The use of this rifle with be my all round rifle for deer or hogs.

Is the Marlin 30-30 effective here in Florida? Or I was looking at 270

Awesome well would you recommend a different rifle in the same price range? 400 or so. I donít need a Cadillac just an effective rifle. It will be my first hunting rife so I need it be versatile

Newbie Europtic.com has some Tikka T3 Hunters that are $518 in .270. Little jacks guns is a $20 FFL transfer fee and $15 for military and LEOs.

Some other good ones for the price range are TC Venture, Savage Axis, and Ruger American. And if you look around you probably can find some Savage 110s around $500 scope package and cheaper for bare rifle.

I shoot a Marlin 30.30 that was handed down as a family heirloom.

Love it. Shot many a round on irons before scoping it with a Zeiss 3-9X50. Scope cost more than the gun. Just have to realize those distance limitations.

150 gr Winchesters spot on at 100 yds.

Good Luck.
