I was about to post a similar question but what if the price range is more of an 800-900 dollar range with a scope. Im not a savage fan sorry but I already know I'm getting a 30-06. So a rifle and a scope for 800-900 dollars. Sorry for hijacking this thread but I know people hate it when you post the exact same thing twice.

i was kind of thinking the same thing! i have two cousins who elk hunt every year in Colorado, one uses a 270 and the other one uses a 7mm Mag. both come home with plenty of elk meat! proper bullets and shot placement, has taken just about every animal in North America.
