Best Hunting Rifles for this Season

by J. Scott Rupp   |  July 30th, 2013 2

New model pickings are relatively slim this year as manufacturers battle to keep up with the demand they already have. Some of the bigger splashes come from European companies. There are several intriguing caliber additions, both from overseas outfits and U.S. companies such as Ruger and Weatherby.

Caliber additions to existing models are described in the text. As usual, if a rifle is not offered in rounds from .243 Win. up, it’s not included here. Yes, I know people hunt deer with .22 calibers such as the .223 and .22-250, but for article manageability and suitability for a wide range of big game I left them out. Here’s my lineup of the best hunting rifles for this season.
