Find The Best Hunting Rifle For You

Updated on January 26, 2014

More and more people are joining the hunting scene each year and getting into the sport. There are many types of new comers like fathers introducing their son or daughter into a sport that they have participated in since they were young, probably from their own father as well. Then there is the older on looker, and I mean older as in just not a kid. This person can be 20 or 30 years old, just old enough that their dad is not introducing them into hunting. They are probably curious maybe from a friend or family member or just their own curiosity that could of spawned from a hunting magazine, TV show, website, where they live and community or simply out of the blue. The bottom line is, you could be one of these categories or a totally different one that I didn’t even mention but the common denominator is that you are new, most likely, because of the nature of this article and that it is centered around choosing the best riffle to hunt with for yourself. Just a hunch because if you were an expert you probably would not be seeking this advice or have this question, you would know what the best one is at least for yourself anyways. Continue reading and you will find the answer to your question.


Considered by many to be the best is the Ruger No. 1 Vermonter K1-V-BBZ. If you read nothing else just buy this gun. Especially for the price tag or only around just under one thousand dollars it is no brainer move. Most experts can agree that you cannot go too wrong with this gun and it makes for one hell of a fun time. It shoots a varmint round and goes for around $950. It also has a cartridge of .204 Ruger and the smallest grip is .469 plus the trigger pull is 5 pounds and 2 ounces. Wow what a rifle this thing is! I wouldn’t mind getting one myself! I have shot one of these a few times and it shoots right on the money. It is very accurate, especially with a scope on the top it shoots like if you let a cat out of a hat on the early Monday morning or just pulled up to jack in the box and ordered a hot sandwich, it seriously shoots like that! The best thing about this gun is the performance; this is the best feature by far, pure accuracy and performance. Secondly the workmanship and overall price per value. I have seen better workmanship but for under a grand it is still a steal because the workmanship I am talking about for a gun is in the thousands.

What is your favorite type of gun?

Well there you have it, the best hunting rifle that I have found and one that you cannot go wrong with. This would be a great fun for you to get started with and of course start collecting a gun or several per year so that you can start deciding for yourself which gun is best. That is where it really gets fun because as you develop a quiver of guns you can then buy and sell or trade them around and start to become experienced and form your own opinions as well as experience the differences. It you are just starting out that is how you will become more a intermediate level and get out of the beginner or novice title and become more of an enthusiast. It is also very important to take proper care of your gun. There are steps you can take to make sure all of your guns last for years and years to come, while never breaking, freezing or exploding in your face! You never want a clogged gun because it could be the end of the poor gun if that happens and serious things can occur like barrels breaking or snapping off. What I have just describes is also tremendously dangerous for yourself and also anyone around you. So moral of the story is to always keep you gun and scope safe by cleaning them after every use.
