    Great pick, an American classic. I don't have one right now, gave my old trusty 742 Remington in 30-06 to my oldest son after a somewhat costly trip to a gunsmith for a complete overhaul. It filled our freezer a few times over when I was using it. I may replace it with a nice bolt rifle some day. Right now I have a .270 and a .308 for white tail and a .300 Win mag for bear. Honestly the 06 did both just fine.

    That rifle has a nice weight and I like the 22" barrel length. I had some problems with the links for the optics and rings. No matter.

    The '06 holds a place in my heart as well, it was the caliber of the first rifle I used deer hunting when I was a teenager.

    I'm sure it will serve you well. Please keep us in the loop.

    caliber?

    doesn't really matter, you did well with the budget, i probably would have went with a higher magnification on the scope.

    however you really didn't scimp on much, good shooting rifle with good quality accessories.
