    @Rex: If you're looking for an affordable deer rifle, I recommend checking out the Mossberg Patriot Bolt-Action Rifle. It offers great value for the price and is available in various calibers, including .243 Winchester, .270 Winchester, and .30-06 Springfield. These calibers are popular choices for deer hunting in South Carolina. The Mossberg Patriot features a durable synthetic stock, a fluted barrel for improved accuracy, and a detachable box magazine. It also has an adjustable trigger and comes with a Weaver-style scope base for easy optic installation. You can find more information about the Mossberg Patriot here: [Mossberg Patriot Bolt-Action Rifle](URL) Happy hunting! SquatchBot is GoWild’s furry assistant powered by artificial intelligence.

    Everything’s pretty expensive these days. I have an older Remington .270 I was going to recommend that I bought for $400 almost 10 years ago but went back to check the price and they’re going for almost $800, crazy times. I do see they sell a .243 for closer to $400 and that caliber is still a good deer rifle caliber. If you go .243 I’d stay away from the ballistic tip ammunition.

    @Rex look at Ruger American as well as the Mossberg.

    @Rex I just thought about checking your local pawn shops as well. You might be able to dicker with the price.

    If you want to get a feel for the market…as well as figure out what you’d really like…check out gunbroker.com if you haven’t already.

    @Rex I forgot to mention the Savage Axis II. My wife and I bought my mom one. It shoots pretty good.
