Hi all.....after trying to figure out what bolt action rifle to purchase and havin issues getting a trade with another certain bolt action, I decided to go the beginner route.....I am in the middle of purchasing a new savage axis chambered in .308. I hear its not bad as a beginner. It comes with a bushnell scope, however I dont know the specs on the scope. I know Ill be planning on throwing a bipod on her and a better scope. With that said, I was hopin you guys can suggest what scope to purchase in the 300-400 dollar range. Of course I will go to a better rifle in the future and would probably be movin the scope and bipod with it. The purpose of this rifle is to see how far I can shoot her and get decent groupings. Im not a sniper nor a hunter, and go to the range often. Thanks!!
