Default Your Next Deer Rifle/

Many of you are most likely like me and are always thinking about that new next deer rifle. My next one will be a Marlin Lever action in one of the pistol calibers. 44 mag, 45 long colt or 41 mag. Or maybe a Ruger 44 Mag auto loader.

Same here--I have a long list that will probably last into the next four or five years, unless I win the lottery. Next up for me is a flintlock Kentucky Rifle from Cabela's. I'll probably end up buying my wife a Rem 700 ADL .270 first, but technically that's on her list.

If I did not already have too many that are close to it, my next would definetly be the 7MM-08! So, my next will probably be a .243 or .260!

I am quite happy with my current Remington 700 Mountain in 30.06, although it packs a heck of a punch.

I dont see myself replacing it anytime soon.

I, too, have been wanting a 44 mag rifle, probably a marlin with octagonal barrel. I also want a long range gun in .308 with scope. I also want a 12 gauge. I also want......

Marlin 1895 in 45-70.
The long version, not the Guide version.
I already have a Marlin 1894 in 44 magnum.

I love my 30-06 springfield. I won't need another for a long time.

I won't be buying a new gun for a long time. Might get a flintlock. Will probably be getting a new bow soon though.
