I may just go the shooting stick way. Sure, I'll still...

That being said, I'm not...

Right now, I'm just hunting deer, mostly 500 yards and in.

The plan is to move out west, where I'll be after larger Elks and such critters, at 600 yards or better.

Yes, this will be a hunting rifle.
Probably only go through a box or two a year.

I was also considering using a "shooting stick" instead of having a bipod attached all the time.

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????

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.

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?

A good revolver is very reliable, and easier to care for.

Personally I prefer a 45.
I recently traded my crappy Taurus pt745 for a Glock 30.
Double stack mag holds 10 rounds.
Very accurate, well built weapon, though a bit expensive.
