    I personally suggest a used high quality model over a new budget model.

    I agree with all of the above, but in regards to budget rifles, I think JD is on the money! My 2 cents, good luck.

    Just buy a used rifle. Most don’t get shot very much, so you’ll get a good gun that will last you a lifetime.

    If I were looking for a budget rifle I would choose a more redaly available caliber like a 30-06 or 308 and I would buy a quality used one that has been built up already

    I like the new Winchester XPR myself I got mine last fall with a Nikon 3x9 BDC scope for 526.00 plus a 100.00 rebate from Winchester making it 426.00 hard to beat that price! It also comes in black or camo synthetic or wood whichever you prefer.

    Ky Gun Co has Thompson Center Compass with Vortex 4-12X40 scope for $381. Not recommending, just something to think about. I picked up two late last year when TC had a rebate going on but haven't shot either yet.

    Buy a good rifle used from a private individual in KY and you will get a good price, no taxes, and no paperwork. I see decent sporterized military rifles like the Mausers, '03s and M1917s, from the 50s and 60s go really cheap. Most will shoot well, or can be made to shoot well with some TLC and some work.

    Marlin xs7. Not to expensive and will shoot better than most anyone that gets behind it. Sub 1" at 100 are no problem.
