I am in the market for a 270 Win rifle. I'm looking because hunting season is here and I don't have any rifles besides my AR-15. I am familiar with them, as my dad has 270s, 30-30s, 30-06, I just don't want to borrow his guns to go hunting. It's time now to start my own collection.
I was at the local wally world today, and saw a Remington 770 black synthetic . It was a nice looking gun, had a scope on it. The price was $350 before an additional $50 rebate from Remington. I thought $300 for a new 270 is a pretty good price so called up pops and asked his opinion. He said that with hunting conditions in Fl it would be best to get a pump action rather than a bolt action because if I have to make a follow up shot it would be easier to re-acquisition the deer? I was hoping I would only need one shot...but I could be wrong I guess?
All input is appreciated, and let me know what 270's you suggest.
This is the gun I saw: Remington Model 770™
