Ill set a $400 max, marlin xs7, savage axis, remington 770, T/c venture, mossberg 4x4, ruger All american rifle, I suggest stay away from the 770, they have a loose mauser action, and it eels flimsy, but if thats no bother they are a durable accurate firearm. watch the mossbergs, I had my 338 almost snap the stock and other guys have had this problem, also make sure venture is new, due to the old recall

NP and as for the mossberg, 338 is a whole different animal then a .308, so the mossberg may be a decent option as well,

Savage makes a great gun, for a heck of a good price! Don't underestimate them. IMO Savage is about one of the most under-rated gun makers out there. I have a few Savages of my own, and they all shoot amazingly well.

The nice thing with the Savage is that it already has a great barrel and action, even in the base gun. As time an money allow, you can always have the stock bedded and a little trigger work done if you really want to tighten up your groups. FOr hunting, you'll be good-to-go out of the box.

Stevens Model 200 made by Savage. My son and son-in-law have them in .223 and they shoot great.

Please remember, there's a difference between "cheap" and "affordable".

Howa 1500s are a top value for under $400. This is virtually the same rifle as the Weatherby Vanguard for less money. The barreled action is typically among the most accurate. The action is one of the most reliable and I consider it superior to all the push feeds on the market (including the venerable Rem 700) because of the integral recoil lug and flat bottomed receiver (for accuracy). The stock is usually junk but will actually shoot sub-MOA with do-it-yourself glass bedding for around $30. Fancier stocks are available in all prices to jazz them up at a later date. Next in line would be the Savages... another great product. I would steer away from cheap products that may not be reliable in may also be quite in-accurate.
