This is a must have for any serious patriot. Ambidextrous, pull bolt, and available in multiple calibers. Must have and probably one of the greatest guns in all of history. Only thing holding me back from saying it is, is the fact I haven't shot it yet... 30-06 won one war already

30-30 works too. Also ambidextrous

Hunting on a budget for a quality hunting rifle with scope  - 30-06 or 7mm Winmag

https://grabagun.com/sale/savage-110-apex-hunt-xp-7mag-24-pkg.html
The Savage 110 Apex Hunter XP is a great choice for a ready-to-go scope combo hunting rifle, chambered in 7mm Remington Magnum. It features an ergonomic synthetic stock with recoil pad, user-adjustable Accutrigger, and a factory mounted Vortex Crossfire II 3-9x40 scope. - $598.99

What is the Difference Between 30-06 and a 7mm?
...
In any real-world hunting scenario at ethical ranges, there's no deer, elk, moose, or bear across North America that will be able to tell the difference between the 30-06 and the 7mm Rem Mag. So long as your shot placement is on point, both cartridges will serve you well.
...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7mm_Remington_Magnum
...
The 7mm Remington Magnum offers ballistics better than the .30-06 Springfield with all available bullet weights, one of the more popular loads being a 160-grain spitzer loaded to 3,000 ft/s (910 m/s). This is due both to the higher muzzle velocity of the magnum compared to the Springfield and that .284 diameter bullets tend to have better ballistic coefficients than .308 diameter bullets of comparable mass.
...
The heaviest commercially loaded ammo available for the 7mm is 195 grains, while the .30-06 Springfield can be loaded with bullets up to 220 grains, but for a .308 caliber to equal the flat trajectory and penetration of a .284 diameter 180-grain bullet with a muzzle velocity of 2,860 ft/sec (870 m/s), as offered for the 7mm Remington Magnum, requires muzzle energy close to what the .300 Winchester Magnum can offer, i.e. well beyond what the .30-06 can deliver.

Savage Arms 110 Apex Hunter XP Review
The Savage Arms 110 Apex Hunter XP is range ready out of the box, and deserves high praise for its accuracy potential and wide variety of available options.


...
The newest member of the XP family is the 110 Apex Hunter XP, which combines a 110 rifle with a black synthetic stock with length-of-pull adjustments and a 3-9x40 Vortex Crossfire II scope mounted on a one-piece EGW zero-m.o.a. rail.

The precision-button-rifled, thread-in-headspaced barrel measures from 18 to 24 inches depending upon caliber—of which there are more than 20, ranging from .204 Ruger to .338 Win. Mag. There's also a left-handed version, and Savage doesn't limit southpaws to just two or three caliber options but instead offers 12 cartridge choices. There's also a version with a pink Muddy Girl composite camo stock that's available in .243 Win., 6.5 Creedmoor, 7mm-08 Rem. and .308 Win.

...

The test rifle in .350 Legend came with an 18-inch barrel, an overall length of 38.25 inches and an overall weight with scope of seven pounds, five ounces. Suggested retail for the package is $639.
...
The Vortex scope is nice and clear, although the windage and elevation knobs didn't offer very distinct clicks. Overall, though, this is a good optic with excellent edge-to-edge clarity and the convenience of the Dead-Hold BDC reticle. The EGW rail is solid and durable, and if you'd like to swap out the provided scope for another, that's easy to do.

QuoteSavage 110 Apex

Extremely good choice. I'm with ya 110% 8)

One thing with the 7mm though, the ammo isn't going to be quite as available in general as .30-06 or other caliber ammunition. Not knocking its capability.

I still gotta try the two I originally posted about lol

P.S. I forgot to mention, the Savage Impulse is an ambidextrous pull action rifle. You can switch left to right handed in seconds. Anyone can pick it up and use it...

The pluses for the apex ... 24" barrel (over 20" impulse)  ... and price ... the apex is as low as 560 with scope . The Impulse is over a G without a scope .

I am more familiar with 30-06 but I've been reading up on magnums , it maybe the more modern choice . The straight action bolt seems to be the modern way.

At x-dollar's per round , the ammo selection seems to be getting more important,
I'm trying to get back into hunting ( from 40 years ago ) and shocked the the prices .

Field Tested: Savage Impulse Straight-Pull Bolt-Action
...
... the new Savage Impulse rifle—a straight-pull bolt-action which promises to popularize the style with a broader market.
...
For the majority of hunters' needs, which involve downing a single animal at a time, this rifle is beyond adequate. The simplified straight-pull motion will allow you to keep hair in the scope with far less trouble than a conventional bolt-action, and is much easier for a new shooter to familiarize themselves with. The tang-mounted safety is also a boon, making it easy to go from stalking to shooting in a hurry.

A Low cost Shotgun:

Mossberg Maverick 88: The Affordable Self-Defense Shotgun
...
The Maverick 88 is a no-frills cousin of Mossberg's legendary Model 500 pump-action shotgun, and although the two guns are aesthetically and mechanically similar, they are not identical guns. Both the Maverick 88 and Mossberg 500 come with sturdy dual extractors and twin action bars, anti-jam shell elevators, positive steel-to-steel lockup for added durability. The Maverick 88, however, features a crossbolt safety in front of the trigger guard instead of the tang-mounted safety found on the Model 500. The Maverick 88 is assembled in Mossberg's Eagle Pass, TX, facility.
...
Regardless of which Maverick 88 you select you'll have a reliable pump-action self defense shotgun.
...
So, what's the price? MSRP for the Maverick is $245, which is considerably lower than Winchester's SXP Defender ($360) and Stoeger's P3000 Freedom Series Defensive Pump ($339). It's quite likely to find a Maverick 88 Security on stores shelves for around $200, which makes this shotgun perhaps the best option in affordable self-defense firearms.

This caliber is a reloader's dream because it is so versatile. I do recommend you read up on proper weights and what works for your rifle's twist before getting too far into reloading! I posted "easy for the novice" as both a good and a bad thing because, as a novice myself, it is very nice to be able to pick this up and throw a round together. BUT you really do need to read up on reloading safety and practices before using this tool! Reloading can be dangerous, or even deadly, if done wrong.

Savage Impulse: Top Quality for an Affordable Price

Today I have the new Savage Impulse to test and review! We'll compare it to other straight pull bolt actions including the Heym SR30, the Mauser M96, and the Blaser R93. These are all great rifles, but the Savage Impulse is simply remarkable! It is quick, smooth, accurate and all in an attractive, unique looking package that gives you a comfortable military feel. I even demonstrate the Savage Impulse  in action so make sure you stick around for the entire video!

7mm Rem Mag vs 300 Win Mag – Cartridge Comparison
December 2, 2021 by Content

...
Both are undoubtedly superb hunting cartridges, so let's check out their strengths and weaknesses to see which side of the 7mm Rem Mag vs. 300 Win Mag fence you sit on.
...
The 7mm Rem Mag has the ability to shoot the same bullet weight faster than the.30-06. The fact that it uses smaller diameter bullets gave it more sectional density and higher ballistic coefficient than the same weight .30 caliber bullets of the same weight .30-06 Springfield.
...
As we compared the 7mm Rem mag against the long established .30-06 Springfield, it is only fair we do this with the .300 Win Mag. The .300 Win Mag case capacity advantage means it has a noticeable, flatter trajectory than the .30-06 Springfield. It also produces around 20% more energy.
...
the .300 Win Mag is more suited for shooters using heavier bullets (200-220 grain range). The final point may be open for debate, but many shooters feel the .300 Win Mag has a slight edge when it comes to accuracy.
...
Bearing in mind the close match in overall size, it is easy to understand that ballistics-wise, both the .300 Win Mag and the 7mm Rem Mag are quite similar. However, the noticeable difference between the two is the size and weight of their bullets.

    The 300 Win Mag uses .308 inch bullets.
    The 7mm Rem Mag uses .284 inch bullets.
...
Shooters using the .300 Win Mag will feel a noticeable increase in recoil than if using the 7mm Rem Mag.
...
Both of these cartridges are highly effective over longer distances, and these shooters can be confident of scoring kill hits at 400-500 yards and beyond.
...
