Marlin X7 or Savage Axis are two great choices. The 243 is a great choice as it can be used for varmints or whitetails. Lots of bullet choices and can reach to 300 yards with ease.

Ya and the marlin x7s in blued/black costs $299-$324 w tax here in missouri. They are forgiving and tack drivers. My 270 x7l will out shoot my buddies brand new 700 sps 270 anyday of the week with factory federal ammo, little loan my reloads. He also has the x7s in 243 and its an accurate little cuss.

No problem mon ami. I do have to admit to love seeing yotes explode under the impact of a 125 grain hornady ballistic tip 7mm wsm also though.

The Axis and the Edge are essentially the same rifle. Savage just changed the name. But I'd pick a Stevens 200 over either. They are made a little better and they work with all the add on parts for Savage rifles. You may want to upgrade the trigger or even swap barrels to a different caliber at some point. You can do that easy with a 200 but not so easy with the Edge/Axis. But they are nice rifles and accurate. It's just the Stevens (made by Savage) has a few advantages and it doesn't cost but a few dollars more. The 200 should be about $30 - $50 more expensive but it's well worth it.

.204 would be a great cartridge. The rifle is proven also. VG combo.
