I saved enough fornandecent rifle and scope, and I wanted to know your opinions on these 3 rifles in .308. Thanks

I have experience with the Savage and would have to recommend it or the Marlin xs/xl.

Of your choices I would go with the Savage simply because they are accurate and well made straight from the factory. You also have the ability to change the barrel in the future if you ever need / want to.

You can probably find a Stevens for a bit cheaper. Only difference is you won't get the accutrigger. You can put a bit more towards the scope and mounts this way. Later on if need be you can upgrade the trigger. But the factory trigger will definitely work great for hunting situations.

Thanks guys! In the field, will I need hearing protection for my .308? Then again, my right ear couldn't possibly get any worse

The correct answer is "yes", but I don't use hearing protection when deer hunting -- don't even notice the sound when I take a shot. Foolish, perhaps; but I never forget it when sighting in or target shooting.

Electronic ear plugs designed for shooting (in contrast to muffs that are bulky) work well while hunting. In addition to protecting one's hearing they amplify ambient sounds to compensate for hearing loss already suffered. They are not cheap, about the same as a basic rifle, but about a tenth of the cost of the Hearing Aids that will be needed after extensive hearing loss.

Gotcha, and I'm guessing you don't notice the sound because the adrenaline keeps you from hearing it

I would go with the Savage in a stainless steel model. They are very accurate rifles.

Don't know anything about the Remy. The theory of operation of the Savatage, and Mossy are the same. Both nut guns...
I have been redoing savage rifles for a very long time, and I have left them behind. They are STILL the same rifle from the "crap, were going broke" era. They have terrible QC, and somehow just feel Tin-y.
The components are very bad cheap. If they still cost the $290i would say fine, but buy the marlin.

YES by ear plugs!!! Personally I like Surefire sonic defenders. LOVE them, give them a serious look.

Savage rifles are just as good of quality as the rest. Buy what you like and works the best for your needs and price range. I like my Ruger rifles but have no qualms about Savage either. Savage are not "crap" rifles. I am not a fan of the axis models, but every manufacturer makes a budget version nowadays. If anybody has terrible "QC" it is Remington. Worst fit weapons I have seen in a long time.

The Marlin X7 or the Ruger American. Both these rifles get much better grades than those you mentioned.

Best of luck with whatever you choose!!

I bought the mossberg, because I looked at tons of reviews, and I really didn't hear any negatives! And I've watched YouTube reviews, and they don't have spot on accuracy, but its not bad at all! I got in walnut!

Congrats brother! Stupid question; We Kentucky boys always thought you people from Ohio could only hunt with shotguns for deer, so why the rifle?

Savage quality control is fine. I own four Stevens 200 and a Savage 116, and they were built better than the high end Remington 700 XCR I won as a raffle prize five years ago. The trigger in the XCR was complete junk - had to replace it to get the pull I demand. Pretty sad for a rifle that retailed for about $900 at the time.

Lol, the rifle isn't for deer, it's for the stinkin' coydogs we have around here! Yes I said coydogs, but the coyote population in general has gotten completely out of control! I shot 39 groundhogs last summer, and I shot ONE this summer. We can only figure the coyotes are running of food sources

Nothing quite as spooky looking and unpredictable as a "coydog". Those things go on breeding frenzies in the dark back woods around here and make more viscous creatures. There are genuinely places you just don't go because of the dogs (probably pot-grower rumors mostly).

Wow...... Well, I ordered a Henry a couple weeks ago, and it had my name on it. I'm 17, so they gave my dad a TON of crap about picking up a package not in his name :/. Friday is gonna be interesting. Is there anything I can do?
