I have only one deer rifle, it's a .243...

Go with a Leupold V-II, 3x9x40...The heavy duplex is really nice,
especially in low light conditions...

Sorry to hear that,my 710 in 30-06 is a great rifle.It's accurate out to 300 yards,the guy behind the trigger might not be,lol.

i to can vouch for the atr i love that gun i have one in a 30 06 i gave it a facelift a month ago with a tiger stripe stock and od green barrel its an awsome deer gun and the atr comes in a few different cal like 270 308 ect... as far as rifle choice for deer hunting if you dont think you will shoot far go with a 30 06 and you will also be able to take elk and moose later on if you feel the need and the 06 is a solid 350 yard on gun to if you are able to shoot that far

if you are going to use the rifle to hunt one or two days a year and not shot a whole lot with it the rem 770 is ok. want to shoot a lot and hunt hard look at the rem 700 adl.
