Re: New rifle. Not a levergun.

Great kill pic Flint! In my younger days deer hunting around here, 70s-80's, I bumped into a lotta hunters carrying either the Auto version or the pump action version of those Remingtons, several different model numbers for them thru the years.

Re: New rifle. Not a levergun.

I got this one back around may, also for $600 at a local PS. It's a Mod 742, not sure the difference, cosmetics I'd say? I've not shot it at long range, but it's a great deer rifle within reasonable ranges!

With useful being the key word, my Marlin 336 wins by a fraction. I've got the open barrel sights fixed to where for me they're very precise out to 100yds+. I filed the rear sight down flat, so there's only a small shallow U left. Filed a slight flat spot on the front sight. And I have a Marbles Tan...

I hunted with a Browning 71 quite a bit for a couple years. Shot 6 or 7 deer (crop damage permits) and a black bear. Beautiful rifle that handled great but as OldWin said, it's a lot of iron to pack around when you're hunting small big game. I'm a walking hunter and it wasn't doing anything for me ...

Looks like rabbit medicine to me! If you're looking to do any testing with any other bullets, I've recently tried some Speer 130gr H.C. with a minimum load of 3031. In my 20" 94, they're grouping at squirrel hunting accuracy at 30-40yds. Didn't chrono them, didn't matter.
