The Remington 270 bored to 7mm magnum is accurate beyond belief with open sights but never shot a squirrel with it but broke a good sized rock in half when a 30-06 with a hot load could not do it.
Who the fck would want to shot a poor fkn squirrel anyway.

I love venison.
The 30 30 is a good deer gun for my area on the east coast, where you are usually hunting in more brush, and wooded areas, and where you aren't taking shots more than 100 yards. The average kill range for deer, squirrel, and turkey, which are the most hunted is 40 yards. Which is why the shotgun is usually the weapon of choice. In the Rocky Mountains, a long range rifle like the 30 06, 308, 7mm, or 270, bolt action, scoped, would be a better choice than the 30 30, or a shotgun, though I could see using a 22 magnum for small game. Large bore rifles to do have good recoils to them, so you don't want a compact version, but the long barrel versions. If you get a chance, try the Remington 700 ADL, or SPS, with the 26 inch barrel. The recoil is more tolerable, especially fitted with a soft shoulder pad on the stock. What hunting I do anymore involves a Remington 870 Express 12 guage, or a Marlin 22 LR.
