Hunting Rifles by Type

Prepare for hunting season with rifles specifically designed for both small- and big-game hunting. Before choosing a rifle, you should consider what type of game you intend to hunt. For hunting squirrels, rabbits, raccoons and other small-game, .22 rifles are an efficient choice, while a .22 LR rifle is suited for long-range small-game hunting that occurs over greater distances. For hunting larger animals, like deer, elk and moose, you'll want to select a rifle that can handle cartridges big enough to kill an animal with just 1 shot, such as a .308, .30-06, .300 Mag, .338 Mag or Remington 7mm.

There are various types of hunting rifles, most notably Bolt action, Lever-action and Semi-automatic. While all are great rifles, each offers different capabilities and features. Bolt action rifles are easy to use and ideal for precision shooting where long distance accuracy is important. Semi-automatic rifles allow for multiple follow-up shots without needing to chamber a new round for each shot. While not as fast as semi-automatic rifles or accurate as bolt action rifles, lever action rifles offer faster follow-up shots than bolt action rifles, are light, handy and better for closer range shooting.
