As a hunting beginner, the wide variety of hunting rifles and the diverse array of cartridges make it almost impossible to decide which hunting rifle you’ll purchase for starters.

If you’ve grown the 22 LR out and you want to add more velocity in your shots, you’d want to have a medium rifle like this Remington 788 that’s great for medium and big game animals. This bad baby shoots very flat with relatively low recoil.
Now for the toys for the big boys, the 308 hunting rifle is definitely a man’s hunting rifle. It’s got lots of power but a with a serious amount of recoil and some extra bucks to come with that.
