Hello all, I have decided to branch out into rifle shooting and was looking for some advice on what a good rifle would be to start out with. Something that is quality, but not to terribly expensive as I am on a budget. I've grown up shooting, shoot handguns regularly, but have decided I want to start going over to the rifle range. I want something bigger than a .22 but not a caliber that's going to break the bank everything I pull the trigger. I was thinking possibly of getting something in .223. And while I certainly enjoy shooting a good AR, I was thinking more of a good bolt action, rated for longer ranges. I also will be wanting to put a good scope on it so any advice there would also be greatly appreciated. Thoughts please?
