With graduation coming up I am looking to pick up a truck gun for this next year at UAF. (I will be leaving the nice 300RUM at home)
Being that I don't have alot of extra money around I can't buy whatever I would like. Are there many good, cheap, bolt guns out there? I have been looking at both the Savage and Mossberg bolt rifles, but are there any others I am missing?
Also, opening a can of worms here I know, but what is a good truck gun caliber? I would like something I can use on a blackie if I happen to stumble into one, but don't want something that will kill the bank to buy ammunition. I had been looking at 300wm. and 270. These good choices? Missing a good/viable caliber?
ANY AND ALL info would be appreciated guys! I'm tryin' to triple my gun library before I head off to the 'great learning' years and I need your help and wisdom!
