Mossberg has an excellent reputation for quality made guns at a decent price. i have owned many over the years and have been more than pleased with their quality and accuracy. you can buy a Mossberg with confidence in that you are getting a firearm that will last for a good number of years and do it's job.
the MVP in 308 is the one i am interested in personally. heavy barreled varmint and target rifles are not designed for long treks carrying them all day long for hunting or for shooting unsupported as mentioned. they are designed for shooting off of a rest or bipods or from a bench of some sorts. they are heavy in the barrel area and not meant to be carried and swung like lightweight sporter barreled hunting rifles. my lightest heavy barreled rifle, with the scope mounted weighs over ten pounds and one even weighs over 13.5 lbs with its scope mounted. neither are suited for long treks in the woods.
