Savage axis in 30-06 is a good gun and wont break the bank for around 330. But it is by no means the best but i love mine. Didnt see the need for a pricey gun to toss in the truck and on 4wheeler

The Savage 110 or 111 is probably the best sub $500 rifle on the market, in my opinion, because I regularly get sub-MOA groups, and sometimes quite a bit less. Other good sub $500 rifles are the Ruger American Rifle, Weatherby Vanguard Series 2, and the Remington 783. If you willing to spend more the Remington 700, Winchester Model 70. Tikka T3 and Ruger M77 are other great rifles.

U2mmbWhat treestand said in regard to new rifles. For a used, find a M77.

The "best"? Excellent suggestions have been made, but I'll add the Sako 85, the Cooper Model 52, the Dakota Model 76 Standard, and the Winchester Model 70.

All suggestions above are good. If I were buying new an adjustable trigger(savages etc.) might be a strong consideration. I do favor Model 70 Winchesters and Remington 700's in used rifles. I own both and couldn't be happier with their performance as hunting rifles. I like buying new though because no one I know ever sold a super accurate rifle. We tend to hold on to those rifles.

Of all the suggestions, nobody mentioned the Marlin XL7.
The one I've had experience with is in .270 Win.
It's a tack driver and cost less the $500!
New OR used, they are pretty good rifles.
...and since "action" wasn't mentioned, how about a NEF Handi-Rifle?
With a synthetic stock, they are REAL "knock-a-round" guns!

Well I couldn't be happier with the suggestions, Leaning toward the Rem. 783 for the price and what you get. Man a Cooper would nice if budget would allow.

Your questions are too vague. Spend some more time thinking about them, and then ask, again!

I value the input of others. I've read the reviews of numerous web sites and mags on all mentioned guns above, before posting my vague question. Which is what it was intended to be to get unrestricted responses and even a debate. And just maybe something I had not thought of.
