Curious, is it for you, or a youngster?

I'd get a .308.

I have a 243 and a 308, both are good rounds. I shoot the 308 9 times out of ten. Much better barrel life also. In that price range I would hit the pawn shops looking for a used remington 700.

Its for my son hes 13....I was looking at the marlin x7 any opinions on that rifle?

The Marlins are GREAT rifles for the price. You can't go wrong with the Marlin X7. I had a Marlin XL7 in .270 and it shot just as good as other rifles costing hundreds more. It also comes equipped with their version of the Accutrigger and a Weaver type scope base. I haven't had experience with the Savage Axis so I can't comment on that.
