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:
K31 Swiss 7.5
Japanese T44 6.5X50 type III Carbine.
Swedish M38 6.5.
Argentine 1909 Carbine in 7.65.
You can kill deer with almost anything. I can't decide what is next. Maybe a 1895 Chilean Mauser Carbine.
