I am not much of a hunter but this is what I would call my best version of a hunting rifle. It's a bit different than y'all's.
1951 Marlin 336RC in .30-30 Winchester with a vintage steel Redfield peep sight. I cast and load for it too.

That 336 30-30 is really nice. That was my first deer rifle I purchased from Gibson's in Odessa for $89 back in 1970. I worked sacking ice that Summer to buy it, and my dad put a Weaver K4 on it for me. Still have it, and still shoot hogs with it. Thanks for the walk back in time, and love that peep setup.

This is my main hunting rifle - a 280AI, built by our very own, Jason Garvey.

Built on a Rem 700 actionMcMillan Game Scout stock
24" Bartlein Rem Varmint Barrel, spiral fluted, 1/9 twist
(Action squared and lug upgraded)
NF ATACR 7x35x56 up top
Atlas BT10 V8 bipod
Trigger Tech, set to 1.5#
20 MOA pic rail
Triad Tac pad
CDI bottom metal
Live Oak brake

11/11 on big game animals, and shot out to 800 yards with tremendous accuracy!

Jason developed a handload (162gr ELDM/ELDX) which is getting between 1/4 - 1/8 MOA, depending on how well I do my job! I have loaded with the same recipe, with the same results.

IMHO, Walmart has never sold a better performing rifle than the Weatherby Vanguard Deluxe Sporter. This one chambered in .270 Winchester and without question the most accurate rifle I own. One of those times when an impulse purchase really paid off.

Was at the range today with a trio of 308s.

I have to say that Ruger RSI has to be the most unpleasant rifle to shoot that I own. The Montana was way more comfortable with less weight. Maybe I’ll load down to HAMR speeds on that Ruger so I will actually enjoy it.

Great thread! I really enjoy looking at everyone’s rifles and hunting pics.
I have 2 favorites. First is a Tikka T3 .270 WSM with a 3-9x40 Sightron SII scope. Rifle started out with a wood stock,but I replaced with a Bell and Carlson Stock. I love this rifle. It is my go to. I have taken many animals with it.

My other favorite is my Great Grandpas Marlin octagon barreled 30-30. It was made in 1893 and has a 4 digit serial number.I have taken a a few whitetail with this rifle. It’s crazy to think I have killed deer with the same 129 year old rifle that my Great Grandpa killed deer with.

In bottom pic, my Great Grandpa is standing with his buck on fender. His rifle is pointing to the ground. I believe this to be same rifle that I have.

Needed a Juddmoor in the safe and at 10lbs 4oz, it's going to see a lot of range time with the older kiddos

Plenty of ARs for pigs and yotes, very few pictures I can find right now though
