Been looking to get a hunting rifle for awhile now. I've never been hunting before but have a lot of people that want to take me "under their wing" and show me the ropes.
I've got my eyes set on the Remington 700 XHR in 30-06. The best deal I can find in Tucson is $725. Sportsmans has it for $749 on sale and a couple other gun shops are in the upper 700's.
Its a little more than I want to spend but I figure I might as well spend a little more now on what I think is a quality rifle than buying an okay rifle which I'd eventually want replace down the road.
To buy the XHR or not to buy the XHR?
P.s. Plan to use it on blasting deer and elk down the road once I put a quality scope on it.
p.p.s. I most mess around with handguns, shotguns, and bows. So whatever info you guys have is appreciated!
