    WTB hunting rifle

    Hey guys, after a new rifle. Have found mine is just a little too nice for me to go bush bashing. Am after something plastic stainless etc just trying to keep the weight down and get something that will last in the elements. Prefer to spend under $800, Anything out there before I buy something new. Have FAL and located in Wellington

    Cheers

    I have a Ruger All American Compact 223 s/s Poly, threaded no suppressor 16x scope and sling for $850. Had about 50 rounds through it.
    I love it but finding that long range shots are not required small paddocks and tight bush here so looking at AR instead.

    Thanks for the awesome offers guys, the ruger sounds great but I'm after something a little bigger than a 223. Probably 243 minimum. The weatherby looks great and I would have been keen if it was stainless. Thanks again for the offers
