I have been using my model 94 Winchester 30-30 for 20 years now since it was handed down to me from my father when I got my first hunting licence when I was 15 y/o. Never used anything else, although I did get a semi 308 Rem when I was a teen but gave it to my dad as I liked the 30-30 better, and just borrow it when I go out for moose (rare as my family lives in Ontario). Anyway, I have been thinking of getting something for backup as my old Winchester is getting old and I would hate to have it gimp out on me in the middle of a hunt and have no back up other than a 12gage. I would like to get into moose hunting more and have been thinking of getting something good for moose and backup for deer if ever needed. I have never used a British 303 but see them all the time for next to nothing. Just wondering why? alot of other heavy rifles are $600+ used for bolt actions, but I never often see a hunter using a 303. Can anyone give me some info on them, why they are so cheap and why they seem to be at the bottom of the list for perferred hunting rifles?
