My first Rifle, for bugging out.

I have never purchased a rifle before, well any gun actually. I have shot some, but it is time for me to get a rifle.

I have been keeping an eye out for one rifle I really like. The Remington Model 770 30-06 Springfield or 308 Win

I was wondering if this could be a great rifle for hunting, and protection in the woods against wild life and/or humans and of course bugging out.


Here are some pictures of the price of the rifle, and ammo.

Rem Model 770 W/ Scope - $297.00

308 Win 165/180 Grain Deer Thug Federal Ammunition

My neighbors have a couple in 270 and 30/06. They have been over shooting at my range, sighting them in. I will have to say I was very impressed with them. Both are just as accurate as my Remy 700's. Even better than a neighbors Browning, as far as shooting groups on paper.

I would say it's a very good choice for a first rifle. Especially given the price, accuracy etc. I would go with the 308 cause of the shorter action. However, it's easier to find 30/06 shells. Both calibers will easily do everything to fill your needs.
