Changing my mind again...

What about a Mossberg 100 ATR? It has the adjustable trigger, good feel to it and the bolt is smooth as silk...

I had Mossberg ATR's, sold them after I got my Marlins. Going to shoot my Marlin and Edge 7-08's tomorrow and see who wins...........troube is, suppose to be 102 2morrow............My ATR's were good too, probably better now with hte new triggers........all 3 are great buys.....I really love the way the Edge feels in my hands and shoulders....

Default How about "switch-barrels"

Using the Savage or Marlin makes for an ideal switch-barrel rifle for all sorts of use which I find most interesting. Using the short action version of either rifle..you could have barrels in calibers of, for instance, 22-250, 250 Savage, 260 Rem or 7-08, 308, and 338 Federal.

Just some thoughts for you folks to persue. I can see lots of advantages with one rifle and various barrels for the particular game you might be hunting!

What say y'all?

Regards,

Ol' John

I bought the XL-7 in .270 for my daughter for deer hunting. Put a Nikon Buckmaster series scope on it and after sighting it in, I almost didn't give it to her. It is a great rifle for the money. I would definitely buy one again. Plus, she took 2 deer with it last year - I'll never get it from her now.

Fluted bolt looks nice

If you can attach a Sling & Scope & set it all by yourself...not really anything else needed.

Well...maybe a Bipod, but that's another easy installation
how bout that bipod? easy? do i need anything additional for it?

i have three of the Marlin's, an XL7 in 25-06, an XS7 in 7mm-08 and an XS7VH in 308, it has the heavier and longer barrel. these are some of the best entry level rifles to come on the market in a long time. the Savage Axis line are good rifles too, but i prefer the X7's over them just because of how they feel and balance to me. the Mossberg ATR100 is a decent and accurate rifle, (i had one in 30-06) but the recoil is more pronounced than the Marlin or the Savage. if just hunting, any of the three would work fine, but if target shooting, pick the Marlin or the Savage. my 308 shoots great and is very accurate. the Mossberg 30-06 with handloads i had, would make one ragged hole at 100 yards, but would punish your shoulder in the process. i have shot a friends Savage's and was impressed with the accuracy but like the ergonomics of the Marlin better.

the remington sendero is a fine rifle and remingtons have an excellent reputation as very accurate rifles, but the sendero's MSRP is $1450, so you might get one for $1200. i don't know if the OP was wanting to spend that much on just the rifle. but if so, then that would be a good choice if he's willing to spend that much.
