Savage 111 300 win mag
 
I'm seriously thinking of picking one of these up.
I can get one, new, with a 3-9 scope, for around $500.
Anyone had any experience with one of these?

If it is a package deal with the scope from Savage just buy the gun and get a decent scope for it. The scopes that come with the package deals are bottom of the line scopes for the most part,and will not last or have very good optics.

I would also suggest a scope in the 4x16 power range for a 300WM,unless you aren't going to be shooting over 200yrds,then why would you want a 300WM. There are plenty of other calibers that would serve better at shorter ranges,and be alot more fun to shoot.

The scope that comes with it is just your basic Bushnell 3-9.
I was thinking I may need more magnification.
I'm looking to shoot 500 yards or more.

Just an update:
At our local Gander Mountain, they wanted $499 for the rifle with scope, and they tell me they would have to have $549 for one without a scope.

What????
