Hello all, I'm a newb here and I'm looking for some advice. I'm trying to figure out what would be a good first rifle. I want to start out shooting with iron sights and move to a scope later on. I have a budget of roughly $1500 and I don't want to skip on quality. I'm not opposed to semi, bolt action, and lever action but I definitely do not want a single shot. I'm not recoil sensitive but I don't want to spend whole lot of money on ammo, for instance, $20.00 for 20 rounds of .308win. I've been thinking about a .22 but I've shot a 10/22 and it feels like shooting a pellet rifle, despite that, I find the Remington 504's attractive but i'm not sure if they come with iron sights or not. Like I said, I don't want to use a scope because I want to learn to shoot accurately with regular sights first. What do you guys think? I'm open to any suggestions or comments. Thanks in advance!
