Hunting Preferences
 
I am looking for a .308 rifle to add to my collection. I am going to use it for hunting primarily. I was wondering everyone's preference in .308 rifles.
Thanks!

At the risk of being a repetitive critter,best bang for the buck Savage can't be beat,she's a Plane Jane in looks her beauty lays in gut constant dimensions,for X Ring or kill zone shots with consistency,Savage parts are made from vendors/contractors,so if Savage gets a load of bad this or that,Savage doesn't pay for the items at the vendors loss.All Savage does is assemble the parts to make a fine rifle,one can spend much money for a pretty girl hollywood stock,but that's just a look at me ain't I pretty..

Just about everything is made in .308.

Hank, would you choose a Savage over Remington? Why, or why not?

check out the Marlin XS7 in 308. very nice rifle, well made, very accurate, pillar bedded stock, adjustable trigger, great recoil pad and priced very decently. i have three of the Marlin X7's and all of them are very good rifles.

check out the Mossberg ATR100. another good rifle. very accurate and well made.

check out the Savage Axis series. another very accurate rifle. priced very well indeed.

check out the Howas 1500 or the Weatherby Vangaurd. both the same rifle, but different stocks. very good rifles and well made.

check out the Stevens 200. made by Savage and basically a Savage 110 IIRC. very well priced.

I guess it depends on the old budget. If I had the money I would buy a SAKO but that aside I would settle for a Remington 700, Howa 1500 or a Savage 110 series rifles. They are very good rifles and accurate. Then buy a good quality scope for it like Nikon. Leupold, Bushnell 1500 Series or others. 308 is a good all around choice caliber wise.
My last one and most favorite hunting rifle is the Remington CDL in 7MM Rem Mag. Shoots 1/2 MOA Groups at 100 yards on a good day!

Sir simple Remington lost old time quality for production numbers,AKA shove it out the door,Remington even butchered Marlins till the guns were,say non acceptable/a pile of junk with walnut furniture adoring the rifle,but a non quality rifle non the less.

Savage was always a slow burning candle,Savage sold what they could with no hast,from the most concentric parts money could buy,"From Contractors"not factory gig saw puzzles laying about the floor.

As I posted previously,try to chamber a once fire formed chamber Remington brass,into a Savage chamber,PM me and tell me if chambers in that tight Savage chamber,I think not?

Hank i hate to disagree, but yes some of the Marlins did have some fitment issues when Remington took over, but most of those problems have been resolved now. and it was mainly with the Marlin lever actions.

and unless my LGS is getting a great crop of Remingtons, so far i have not seen a great reduction in the quality of of the Remingtons like everyone is talking about.
