I have a Savage Axis in .270 and I love it. They cost $300 bucks but you also then have to buy a scope. The trigger pull is somewhat heavy but breaks very crisply. I personally feel I could not have chosen a better rifle for the price.

another option is the Mossberg ATR100. pretty accurate rifle. very well made and decently priced. recoil is a bit stouter than some of the others though, but still a good rifle.

This sounds like a darn good deal!

I picked up a Savage. They are very accurate and you can pick up a new one in your price range. I think it will be hard to get a Remington used in that price range. I know you can' buy a new 700 in that price range. Bass prow just had a sale on the Savage for $400. Good luck on what ever you decide.

I just picked up a Savage hunter 111, mine is 30-06. Comes with a Bushnell scope attached to it. The gun was $369.00. It shot great and the Bushnell scope has a life time warrantee with it. Grant it the scope might not be the best out there but its bright and holds tight groups. The trigger is a standard trigger( no adjustments) but its easy to pull, crisp and predictable. The bolt is smooth.

depending on your area, it's possible to buy a used M700 for a decent price.

last year i bout two about six months apart. the first 270 and the second a 30-06. i gave $325 of the 270 and $250 for the 30-06. even after refinishing both i am still less than $1000 for both including scopes. so there are some good deals if you look around hard enough and don't mind doing a little work on them.

Ever notice the cheaper the purchase the louder and more frequent the swearing by, and at people about, it is?

There are some great inexpensive, starter, bolt action rifles available today -- like never before -- but I'd be careful not to delegate a decision to someone else's lower step on the socio-economic ladder.

Bowhunter,
That is an excellent idea regarding the used rifle. By looking at the face of the bolt as well as the bore. It will surely give you a real good reading of the condition of the rifle. $450-$500 will get you a fine used rifle. A while back I purchased a Remington 700 ADL Model in 243 Cal. with a decent variable power scope for exactly $450 at a local gun show. As most rifles a guy has purchased them on a whim sighted them in and never use them to hunt with since they have been too busy or what ever. And the rifle is hardly if ever used. They are a great deal! I have seen some fine top quality rifles that would cost $800-$1200 with a scope sell in your price range. Good Luck on your search!
