Pick a rifle for Erolit

Time for a new rifle... but which one?

Requirements:
Relatively cheap to shoot as well as being good value
Decent build quality
Accurate out to around of 300m (no .22LR's)
Relatively rugged design

For targets and foxes.

I am thinking the Ruger 77/17 (17HMR). While I would like something with a bit more kick, for what I will be doing it proabably isn't neccesary and the price of the 17HMR rounds makes it far more attractive than a smaller centrefire. Does anyone have much experience with Ruger firearms? I have fired one, and it had a very smooth action and seemed quite well built.

Opinions plox.

Johnsee: I'd like to keep the rifle itself around the $1000 mark, give or take.

Girvo: Yes, yes you can :D

Hmm this has me interested,

What does Australian law say about Rifles exactly?
They cannot be automatic obviously, but is semi-automatic fine?
What calibres are illigal?
And does one need to not only hold a license for the weapon but a valid membership with a gun club like handguns?

I'm fairly sure they're illegal here in Australia.

1. You can own a rifle, either centrefire or rimfire, in bolt action only, if you have a genuine reason for doing so. A genuine reason means having permision to hunt on farmland, state forests, or a member of an approved target shooting association.
2. For the most part, rifles can be Bolt action/lever action only
3. Any calibre is fine up to .50 calibre, anything above .50BMG is considered a destructive device. As well as this, .50BMG rifles are only legal in some states.
4. You must have a valid membership for a gun club to own firearms for the purposes of target shooting. The only genuine reason recognised for personal pistol ownership is target shooting, and you must compete in, I believe at least 10 appoved pistol competitions a year to retain your pistol licence.

Hmm thats strange because my Dad has a .22 (I think) and we don't have a farm and he isn't part of a club and it is licensed...

Confused..

Sorry to go offtopic, but what are the requirements for storage of a gun like this?

You have to keep it locked up, dont you?

Rob.
