I currently own a savage 64f and while it is a whole lot more accurate then i am and gets the job done it lacks power since it is a .22. So i'm thinking about moving up in caliber to something more along the lines of a .308 or 30-06 but i don't have an extra 1000 laying around. does anyone know of an extremely cheap rifle? 100-500 dollars preferably. I know it's not going to be an awesome rifle but i just want a cheap bolt action that i use to get really familiar with bolts in general and learn how to shoot a higher caliber rifle.
I just a couple days ago bought a Mosseberg model 100ATR in 30.06 for my sons first rifle. It is a pretty rifle that shoots really nicely. cost about $300
I'd say look at a Stevens 200 or a Marlin XS7/XL7. Of course you could always buy a Mosin Nagant for about $80, its a good way to familiarize yourself with a bolt action, high powered rifle...you might even learn something about history along the way!
