The March Madness of deer rifles continues at Field and Stream. We're voting on Division II right now. Go over and vote for your favorite deer rifle. Not many surprises here as the Remington 700 is way out in front of the Browning BAR, but the Savage 99 is holding its own against the TC Icon, and the Ruger #1 is neck and neck with the Kimber Montana.
This is great fun and the results surprise me. A lever action rifle that hasn't been made since 1998 is beating a brand-new bolt action rifle. This is good stuff. And, let's not forget that the Ruger #1 is a falling block rifle and it's neck-and-neck with a semi-custom bolt action.
I've always thought that one day I should get a Ruger #1 and see what all the fuss is about.
