    Bushnell XLT Trophy 6-18 x 50 Scope.......... Cant remember the rings off the top of my head becasue so many were used to try and get the scope right!!! Havent had a chance to see what she can do out at long range yet... Cant wait to get her out. Just ordered an aftermarket laminate thumbhole stock. I think a lot of bits on this are Savage based, such as the accutrigger and barrel bolt. Might not be the best scrub gun because of the weight. Poor little plastic stock doesnt do alot for the balance.

            Very nice. I am sure you will be happy.

            I bought a Marlin XL7 Sporter in 25.06 . Most accurate rifle I have ever owned & under $600.00.

            Need one in .308

              I had done a bit of research before I bought it, accuracy was a sticking point. Do a fair bit of long range shooting on the farm, this has worked out perfect for a budget long range rifle. Very happy.

              Cheers for the comments!
