I'm new to hunting, and all it's aspects... So I was just wondering if someone could help me figure out what I should get. I'm looking to spend under $1,000 for rifle (so far I've looked at the savage 110), and scope (I've looked into Bushnell's banner, and trophy) + scope rings, ect. I will be using this for hunting everything from deer to elk. So I figure a 30-06 is a fairly good caliber, am I correct? I would be very appreciative for any information. As I said I'm very new to this so any, and all info is appreciated. One thing is, I would really like to clarify if having a multi zoom scope effects shot placement? Thank you.
