hi I am looking at getting my first rifle but being in Australia and our government pulled a false flag on us in the 90s and took our gun rights  >:(

so I a can get either a bolt action or lever action I will get more then one but what are some ones to look at ?

We have lots to hunt around my place from rabbits, foxes, roos to pigs and deer so I was looking for something of an all rounder to start with.

Thanks Michael

my unprofessional opinion would be to get a .357 lever action, that way you can use .38 to hunt small game and .357 to hunt deer. But I am in no sense an expert and will probably get my ears chewed off ;)

TexDaddy:
I prefer a lever action over a bolt gun any day. I really like my Henry.

I plan to get this one for small game when the Hammer of Thor is not required.

What kind of distance for you shots. Over 200 yards I would look at the 270. Under a 100 yards, a 30/30. What really maters most now days is what ammo can you get there. The Mark 1 303 is a very nice gun. Are pumps legal? Can you hand load? Any center fire 22 for the small stuff and most 6.5mm and bigger for the big stuff will work.

chad:
My opinion if it was me..

I love lever action, so I'd get a .22 and .30 or .35.

Are shotguns available to you?


Speaking of the hammer of Thor, I once shot a partridge with a Winchester lever action 30-30...
I know.... WTF did you do that for and why? I was deer hunting and not getting any results..the bird landed on a branch so... I took the shot and hit the bird square, I found a few features left to stick in my hat.
