Although I do not hunt and I already have a .223 EBR, I have thought about getting a good quality ambidextrous rifle with classic lines in .270 or .308. On my short list are the Ruger No. 1, the Remington 760 and the Savage 99. I would also consider other American made lever guns chambered for one of these cartridges. Should I expect to enjoy shooting a handful of rounds several times a year enough to warrant the purchase, or is a rifle like one of these totally wasted on a non-hunter. I know that it makes no sense for me to get the Dakota No. 10 calling to me from my local dealer's gun rack, but a modest quality used rifle seems like it could be a lot of fun while retaining its value. I also know that I would not enjoy a right hand bolt action. Comments from non-hunters would be the most helpful but all suggestions are welcome.
