I had been hunting for ten years with a 30/30 when someone suggested that I needed a bolt gun with a scope to be a good hunter. Bought one, a Remington 700, but never really liked it. It was 3 lbs. heavier than my Winchester Mdl. 94 and deer, elk and antelope didn't fall down any quicker. . . .I sold it. Hunted another 5 years or so with the 30/30 levergun before I bought another bolt gun. This time it was a Ruger Compact in .308 with a fixed 4x scope. It is handy, accurate and only a pound and a half heavier than my 30/30. What's not to like? There is no need to haul around a heavy rifle. Hunting is about fun, not work.
