There are several other calibers you can look at- but a 30-06 will do the job for anything short of African big game (or a blue whale)
You beat me to it!
It is better to put a Leupold on a Savage than a Tasco on a Kimber!!!
It is still hard to beat the OLD (1906) 30-06 for your purpose.

You can also try some older model from some company. I been noticed outdoors world been selling the Browning A bolt cheep ever since Browning intro. the X bolt. Now to me I like the A bolt better because some model came glassbeded with adj. trigger from the factory. But the price are under $500. Now as for scope most of my rifle wear a Nikon buckmaster BDC or Burris FullField with bdc. They are around $200 but value not bad for the price. Since I hunt out west I look through the bino more than the rifle scope. I save my money and get the top of the line bino.
