check out the ruger m77 hawkeye in a 30/06 it is a bolt action rifle so it is quite accurate. it costs about 700 bucks, i have one of these rifles and i dont think that you can get a better gun for the money. very well built and very solid check out their website Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc.


work to live
live to hunt...

I would be thinking of future resale value. Mossberg would not in my opinion be a great investment. I would look at Ruger, Browning, Remington, Winchester especially good used ones. Then spend extra money on a good quality scope. 270, 280, 308 all good. Good Luck!

My 110 did not come with a factory scope. I put a lower-priced Bushnell on it and did not really like the eye relief. I bought a $200 Burris and it was wonderful.

I bought mine second-hand, and paid $300 for rifle, scope mounts, sling, and a box of ammo.

Ok I can solve all your problems. Get ya a Ruger #1 220-swift (or whatever cal. you want) I have one in a 220-swift and it is awsome, and they resale prety nice I think. Or a Rem. 7mm mag. I like that one because you can kill just about anything north of the Rio Grand at just about any range. But if your a smaler feller you may wana put some lead in your pockets, and hold on, it WILL give you scope-eye in a heartbeat.

I've looked at the Remington 7mm and have considered it an option, I've heard that Ruger makes a nice rifle but have not reasearched that particular model. I'm a rather big guy (6'5" 220lbs) so I'm not to concerned with the recoil at this point, I think if I shot every weekend then it would be an issue. I called my local Gander Mountain to see if they had any used guns in stock and they do so I will be heading there this week. I'm really hoping they have something that is almost brand new and possibly a scoped package for $600-700 range. I was going to go less on a rifle and invest in a leopold scope but I would settle for a nice gently used package for the right price. Thanks for all the options you guys have been sending my way, I never would've thought of some of these.

just about any mass mkt sporting rifle will serve 95% of all hunters.. I would have to agree that the savage 110 would be a dandy rifle. This is one of the most underated rifles on the mkt.. good luck and enjoy your shopping.
