35 remington for the win! But between the two id go 30-30 with new bullet and powder technology. The 30-30 aint your papys gun anymore and its just classic

Of the two mentioned I'd go 30-30. But if I could choose it would be a Browning BLR in .308

AR15 458 SOCOM. You can shoot through brush. You can probably shoot through trees.

Marlin 336 30-30 with Wild West Happy trigger, comb riser, poished internals and the barrel band has been loosened slightly to improve barrel harmonics. Leupold VX-3 1.75-6x32 with German #4 reticle installed by the Leupold custom shop. It does shoot MOA.

I want to eventually get an AR in .260 Remington.

I like the FNAR. It's handy in brush but has enough power to go long too.

I just sling up my AR10 with 1-4 scope or red dot sight. That gives me 25 rounds to play with and nothing to hold while walking.
AR15 will be a little lighter and still a great option. While a 3030 is nice, it will be easier to get follow up shots on a sounder using dot sight on AR..

I tend to like an AR or an 18" barrel 12ga for all purpose use - about the same weight. For closer range shooting, there isn't much you can't do with 00 buck, and even cheap slugs still carry a lot of energy at 50-75 yds.

Whats your budget? $400 a marlin 30-30 with iron sights. Or a AR in 7.62-39. Soto arms upper $375-$400. PSA blem lower $159 optics(value priced) and A mag would put you at $650. Both would work to 150-200 yds. Just my 2cents

Really intrigued by the .45 caliber ARs (.450 and .458), I just don't really have a use for one.

30-30 lever action. I hear tell the red dots make them pretty tight shooters at 100 yards with the modern ammo.

16" AR-15 in 7.62 x 39, with a 1-4X or 1-6X I want to get some brass, and other components and see how well I can make a friend's rifle do with a hand load. It already impressed me with factory ammo.

16" LR 308 with a 1-6X or a 2.5-10X. I am carrying this set up now (bigger scope) and it isn't terribly heavy with a standard barrel, and free float tube.
