    For all out accuracy or just for fun?

    I am wondering now - bolt or semi?

    I find for bolt my Ruger 77 MkII is a nice light and very totable varminter. Savage however is almost king of the value deals - and with the acu-trigger these days is real nice. A 110 in this cal would be a pleasure.

    If semi - then you could be coming into AR territory!

    Chris, there is an option besides semi and bolt - it's called pump. Remington makes several. 7615 models in camo and with wood furniture and 7615p models.

    Of course George - sorry quite forgot that!

    Another very nice option.

    I just picked up a Savage 12FLV bolt-action lefty, in .223 REM. After break-in, it should smooth up quite a bit. This weekend, I'll take it down completely, then take it to the range for a long session. They're known for being highly accurate. This one's a 26" heavy, free-floated barrel, bedded synth stock. Should be a bit of fun, once I've got the scope dialed in and a couple hundred rounds through it.

    You can find them for under $500. Check Bud's Gun Shop, for example. For a bit more money, there's the 12BVSS, or even one of the newer single-shot rifles.

    Agreed. For most though at 50-100yds a Mini 14 is as easy to hit a 6" pie plate with as a bolt gun would be.
    A friend of mine and I enjoy shooting at clay pigeons that we set up on a small hill with our rifles. Off hand I can hit them just as often with my SKS(with scope) as I can with my buddies Savage tactical rifle.

    In that price range you could pick up an AR and I think that it is one of the most fun rifles around...some people don't like them but I love going to the range with mine. They are both fun and pretty accurate.

    Buy a used Mini 14 for under $400 and throw a scope on it.

    Find a used Rock River Arms AR and enjoy a tight gun... put an eotech reflex sight on it and hit 8" plates all day at 100 yards.

    I would go with a Savage 110FP. I have one in .308 and it is incredible. The money you save on the rifle you can invest in the scope.
