I realize that we are not about hunting rifles here. However, I do know that many of you are very knowledgeable about rifles. I'm thinking about going deer hunting with my father-in-law for the first time in my life. I want to pick up a rifle that is accurate and reliable and won't set me back a bunch in case I don't like it. I've done some digging around and I'm kind of thinking about a Remmington 700 SPS or a Ruger Hawkeye. Anybody want to offer some advice, I'd appreciate it.
