    I am using a Winchester Model 70 Sporter Varmint with a 26" barrel in .243 caliber.

    It is more that your $500.00 limit though.

    Ruger #1 in 7X57.

    Killed lots of deer with my Ruger and visitors I was guiding killed a lot more.

    This year I skipped bucks but shot a few doetags. Still shooting for a couple more weeks.

    First doe this year was with a 1903A3 and Greek HXP FMJ. I was about 100 yards out shooting offhand. CMP order gun.

    Second doe was from a tower and chair with a Eddystone P17 bought from the CMP North store. Used HXP again.

    Third doe was with a 1937 K98 Mauser WWII bringback. Someone took the rear sight off and installed a Lyman peep. Used S&B 8mm softpoints.

    Fourth doe was with a Krag 30-40 bought off Gunbroker.

    Fifth doe was with an 1891 Argentine Cavalry Mauser Carbine 7.65. I shot handloads. It's a Mesquite gunshow rifle bought a couple of years back.

    Last year was:

    Garand
    M1 Carbine
    K31 Swiss 7.5
    Japanese T44 6.5X50 type III Carbine.
    Swedish M38 6.5.
    Argentine 1909 Carbine in 7.65.
    Ruger #1.

    You can kill deer with almost anything. I can't decide what is next. Maybe a 1895 Chilean Mauser Carbine.
