First Choice: Tikka T3
Second Choice: Weatherby Vanguard
a Savage 110 or 111 will likely outshoot all the other guns in that pricerange.
Boy, are you gonna get a bunch of answers!
Marlin XL(?) 7.
I agree with Bubba, I've always wanted a Marlin XL7. I wish I could test one to see how they shoot, but I haven't gotten around to it.
A Mossberg 500 or a Remington 870, either of those purchases would leave you enough money to purchase a good rifled barrel for either and you can use one for all other types of game also.
weatherby vanguard .30 - 06, tikka t3 in .30 - 06 , marlin xl7 and my favorite savge 110 or 111 with an accu trigger
You can find deals on Remington 700 SPS's for around that at places like Dick's Sporting Goods.
Savage with accutrigger abd accustock is hard to beat.
Definitely Savage. Their barrel nut system allows for great headspace at a low price. Put a Leupold or Redfield scope on it and take to the woods.
Also look for used guns. If you want something other than a bolt action, you can get An old Winchester lever or a Remington pump.
Remington 7600--would finish should be $500 or just over and the synthetic should be $400 or a little more than that.
Easy! The weatherby vanguard. I guarantee that wherever you are shopping they will have it. I know Dick's and Walmart has it but all the other local firearm shops in my area carry several of them. They are accurate, reliable, and have a nice finish in my opinion. I really like the smooth bolt on them and the black and silver is the way I like my guns. Next time you go to look at guns you should check it out.
the above answers are good, but for you best value you might want to check out the used guns at a pawn shop or gun shop
This time of year all the big box sporting goods stores are having big sales. With their buying power they can bring some pretty good firearms in at decent prices. I agree with the Savage suggestions. The first two shots out of my new one gave connecting holes at 100 yds.
I have a Weatherby Vanguard and a Marlin XL-7, both shoot very well. I have also heard good things about the Savage rifles. All three will be the job and do it well.
Savage 10/110, 11/111 and especially the Savage 16/116 which is the best deal on a stainless all weather rifle in America.
Remington 7600. Consider a used rifle, there are alot of rifles that maybe 5-10 years old but don't have a whole box of shells down the barrel. You could save a
bunch of money that way, and they mostly have a scope already.
Marlin 336 or glenfield 30a lots avaliable in the pawn shops with scope, saw one yestersay $175
Although I don't have one. Theres been alot of people who've killed a deer with an iron-sighted 30-30. So yea Marlin 30-30
i would go with a marlin in 3030 win or 35 rem
Have a good look at the much expanded and refined Mossberg line of firearms. Lots of good choices there, enough to satisfy most anyone.
I particularly like that Mossberg have 24 inch barrels on their standard calibres, good clip magazines that fit well, solid actions, triggers that fine tune in let-off for target shooters, and much more. Before you buy Pilgrim, check em' out..!
If you want stat numbers it's a 30-30 after that it's what ever floats your boat.
