I wouldn't even consider the Remington 770 and Savage Axis.

For the $$ you've worked hard for, pay the extra few $$ for the Savage Model 10/110. The quality and features on the 10/110 are well worth it.

My $.02 worth.

[QUOTE=WisconsinDeer;71487]I'd seriously look into the Ruger American rifle with that budget if I were you.
I agree I purchased this in the .308 for my daugter. The more I shoot it the more my M77 will stay in the safe This is a great woods gun for cheap money but not a cheaply made rifle.

I just purchased the Rem 700 .308. Not sure if this is out of your price range but many people are happy with the Rem 700.

Since a bit of time has gone by what have your found out? It was agonizing for me to select my rifle, many fine choices.

Are you really locked in to the .308, the .06 offers such a wide range of rounds, 90 gr to 220 gr rounds. I love my Weatherby/Howa, 24" barrel, 3" groupings at 200 yards, can't go wrong with this combination.
