I'd have to agree with Dlb0412. The 30-30 Marlin is more than enough and a great gun. The mossberg ATR series that have been mentioned have a good rep also. I personally mounted a 7.62x39 upper on my AR and found it excellent for this! (I know ,wrong price range, but I love the setup). If you can step up to the Saiga 7.62x39 you won't be disappointed. They are great little brush guns, chrome barrel and more accurate than some would have you believe. They can take a lot of abuse and still deliver.
