The one you can shoot the best. O0




Honestly, that's kind of a trick question.  There's some that you're going to be predisposed to thinking they're pieces of crap, and will shoot as such, even though they may be quite accurate.  On the other hand, there are some that truely are accurate straight out of the box.  There's also variations from one gun to the other, same make, model, caliber, etc.  Also, a custom shop gun (even though straight out of the box) will generally give better accuracy than a stock gun.  Then of course there's the "discount chain" guns that are sub-par.

My advice would be to do research and find out what caliber exactly you're looking for, and then figure out who makes guns in that caliber.  After that, then do more research and find out what people are saying about the different makes for that particular caliber. O0

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Yeah, what BC said. Way too many variables. What are you calling long range?? To one guy 250 is reaching, while some don't start to worry about it tll we're talking 800 yds or more. What purpose will the rifle serve? light rounds can make dandy paper punches but piss poor performance on game, heavier rounds can be gamestoppers with a trajectory like artillery shells.
 Hence the reason so many shooters have multiple rifles, they become application specific. Everyone is in a constant quest for the elusive perfect round. Reloaders constantly tweek their favorite load, Wildcatters dream up entirely new rounds. If there were the perfect round or hands down most accurate, it would be the only one on the market.

 Give us a little more info on what you want to do with this rifle and maybe we can help point you in the right direction.

  :shock: Techo must be chugging that cheap wine again.  ;D  ;D  ;D  SAVAGE may not be the prettiest gal on the block, but they shoot good for the money, as do Marlins, somewhat.  :wink: (Sneak poke at BC injected here.)  What the other fellas said above is solid advice.  O0

Well, I say not to worry about what round you want to shoot and get you a Thompson Center Encore. THEN you can decide what catridges you want. Interchangable barrels with an unlimited number of chamberings and every one I've ever shot was more accurate than I was. O0
