Ruger, Thompson Center and Remington are trusted names in the Rifle Industry.
Wow Padnah! These rifles are so hot they Sizzle. All less than 500 bucks and in most cases guaranteed MOA or less accurate. If you are looking for more bang for your buck (pun intended) then look at these three synthetic stock rifles that I think will serve you well as a deer, black bear and Moose rifles with the right caliber for the game you are after. If you like wood stocks then the price will increase. I have listed the websites so you can check’em out then find your local retailer to handle them.
Ruger American around $350 retail. I tested the 243 Winchester Cartridge and shot 90 grain Nosler’s at 3/4 inch at 100 yards out of the box. http://www.ruger.com/products/americanRifle/models.html

Shop around for $450 or less. Engineered for accuracy. Add shows a 3/4 inch 100 yd group. Below.
