    Definitely in the 30-06 or .308 camp.

    But you will not go wrong if you are shopping around and find a rifle in 7x57 Mauser, 7mm-08, 25-06, .243, or if the Gods are shining down on you and you come across something in .257 Roberts for around $450-800.

    Also, find out if your FIL has something to lend you and that way if you aren't crazy about Deer hunting, you ain't out much.

    All of the above cal. will be fine for taking animals from 50 yards out to 400 yards with a decent scope(3x9 42 or 44) , and a couple of those may take you past that a bit

    Good luck have fun,hope your FIL likes you!

    Get a Savage bolt gun chambered in 30-06, put a Nikon ProStaff on top, and vary bullet weights depending on what game you're after. Lots of really nice calibers in the world, but that one does it all fairly well.
