    30-30 lever action is good.

    Low caliber, low cost, and mid to short range. Gee, that sounds like a .30 cal carbine to me.

    You neglected to tell us for what you plan to use this rifle.

    Look at savage, Howa, and CZ. A .30 caliber such as a 308, 30-06, 30-30 should do it.

    For short to mid range, and inexpensive both for the gun and ammo, the .30-30 is hard to beat. Very handy gun and caliber.

    I'll jump in with the rest and say lever action .30-30. The used gun racks at most any shop will have a few to pick from, and don't forget to check pawn shops. Good luck.

    H&R Handi rifle. It is a single shot and can be had in a variety of calibers. I have one in 243 Winchester and it shoots great. You can pick one up new for around $250 and they are very easy to mount a scope onto.
    It is a lot of bang for your buck. You can get wood or synthetic stock and different barrel configurations. Some of the options will drive the cost up a bit but you don't need to. They can be had with iron sights also and chambered in handgun cartridges if you prefer.
    If I had a dollar for every brain Obama DIDN'T have, I would have one dollar.
