With so many rifles on the market, and different advice offered by every hunter about what to buy, choosing a new hunting rifle that fits within your budget may seem impossible. Comparing what you want and need with how much you can spend may be daunting, but Matt Jarog says it’s doable.

“As a first time buyer I considered all the various decisions that go into buying a gun and decided on the Remington 770 chambered in 7mm Magnum. While it may not be the first pick for many experienced or professional hunters, for an enthusiast with a limited amount of money to dedicate toward a hobby, this rifle may very well be ideal.”

Jarog weighs the pros and cons, and maintains that if you’re a bargain hunter looking for a new rifle, the Remington 770 may offer the best bang for your buck.
