The Best Deer Rifles Under $1,000
December 20, 2013
Want a new deer rifle that looks, feels and shoots like a precision machine but costs less than a mortgage payment? Say no more. We've found four new bolt-actions for under $1,000 that will make any deer hunter happy. Some are based on history's great designs while others feature cutting-edge contemporary engineering. One thing they all have in common is that each will shoot better than most of us can.
Remington Model 783
is engineered to provide deer hunters with extraordinary accuracy at a price that's under $500. It has a free-floated stock, user-adjustable 'œCrossFire' trigger, floating bolt head and a pillar-bedded action. Available calibers include the .270 Win., .308 Win., .30-06 Spfld. and 7mm Rem. Mag.
Ruger American Compact
Youths, ladies and jockeys rejoice! Then go buy a scaled-down version of the Ruger American
. The American created one of the biggest splashes in recent firearms-design history with its adjustable trigger, unique accuracy enhancing 'œPower Bedding' and a rotary magazine. The American is also available with an 18-inch barrel and 12.5-inch length of pull in your choice of .243 Win., 7mm-08 Rem. or .308 Win.
Savage Lady Hunter
This rifle was designed for ladies that hunt by legendary hunting ladies. The Lady Hunter
offers feminine-fashioned proportions and curve-complementing lines. These rifles are based on the proven Savage 11 and 111 actions and they come chambered in popular calibers from .223 Rem. to .30-06 Spfld.
Winchester M70 Ultimate Shadow Hunter
The most expensive model in our fab four lineup is among the best, too. Cutting-edge stock design
combines with Winchester's
legendary Pre-64-type controlled-feed action, to provide hunters with a rifle that is as at home with the modern crowd as it is in the classiest deer camps in the nation. It's available in popular calibers from .243 Win. to .338 Win. Mag.
