Best Deer Rifle
I am currently looking for a good deer rifle and can't make up my mind. I am on a budget so i'm not lookin on spending 700. Somewhere from 300-650$ is my budget. I have looked at Savages, Tikkas, Remington, T/C Venture. Any advice would be appreciated.

I shoot a T/C Icon Classic, and as far as I know the Venture has the same action and barrel as it does. The Icon is well balanced, smooth action, and a nail driver!

Any of the ones that you listed will do well. One that you didn't mention was the Winchester which is being built in South Carolina USA. I have a reply on the Featherweight model 70 in a 270 win you might be instrested in reading. Good luck and Good hunting.

Just an idea .... go to a reputable hunting gear retail store and see what they have in used stuff. For an example, look at Mark's Outdoor Sports, Vestavia, Al. web site for an idea of pricing. I just bought a used, but nearly pristine Browning A-Bolt in 270 Win. from them. Walnut stock (1 slight scratch), Leupold scope mounting system ... base and rings (no scope), Pachmyer recoil pad, and sling studs (no sling) + a complimentary gun sock , out the door, for just about half way between your $300 - $650 limit.

The best deer rifle is the one that fits you the best. A comfortable fit will lead to increased accuracy, and confidence.
Look at several rifles before you decide what to buy.
I owned a brand new .308 Ruger M77. It didn't fit as well as I thought it did, and I wound up selling it the next year. I replaced it with a 7mm Ruger M77, because it fit better.
