Try splitting words up, at least in your title.

I thought there were three rifles on the table.

right sorry about that it a Remington770springfield30-06 or a mossberg100atr30-06??

December 24, 2011, 12:30 PM
I'd stay clear of both and look at either the Marlin XL or XS line or the Savage Axis.

December 24, 2011, 12:37 PM
I've got the Mossberg, and I'm totally happy with it. 1" @ 100yds if I do my part. Not the prettiest thing out there, but that's not why I bought it.

December 24, 2011, 12:53 PM
I have no experience with the Mossberg, and don't own either rifle you mention. I have handled / shot a friend's 770. If those are your only choices, I'd go with the Mossberg ... and that's coming from a Remington fan.

Frankly, I'd look for something else altogether.

December 24, 2011, 01:11 PM
In that price range, only the Stevens 200 would do for me.

December 24, 2011, 01:16 PM
I would also recommend the XL7 or Axis

thank you guys so much, you have bin so helpfull i really have to look into all of ur great opinions

December 24, 2011, 02:10 PM
you are better off with a used gun. I would look for a good used remington 700 savage 110 or weatherby vanguard.

December 24, 2011, 02:19 PM
Got one and I like it a lot.

It's a 1 MOA shooter which I believe is somewhat due to the smooth crisp trigger. It's not a beautiful rifle, but, I didn't pay for pretty.

Lot's of my friends have enjoyed it also. And, if you are anywhere around Lawrence, Kansas, you are welcome to give mine a try.

im just shocked that no one chose the remington any reason why??

Only the Remington 770 fits that price range. Its not up to my standards in quality or looks.

jreyes, do a search on this Forum about the Remington 770.
It has been covered dozens of times.
It's hard to repeat and repeat and repeat every time a new guy asks.
Best to do a search and learn more about it.

The 770 is known to have an extremely accurate barrel,
but the rest of the gun is difficult to live with. Crappy, in fact.
But amazingly accurate.

Go do a search.

Have a Mossberg ATR-100 in .30-06. Will hold under 2" @ 100Yds in MY hands with cheap soft-point hunting ammo.

With GOOD ammo (read as Federal Gold Medal Match ammo) will hold under 0.7" @ 100yds

December 24, 2011, 07:24 PM
haaha dam u guys can be mean but aight thanks for telling me anyways

December 24, 2011, 07:29 PM
Get an Axis. The other two are garbage.

December 25, 2011, 12:18 AM
I also have an Mossy ATR it's been a good budget rifle and shoots around 1MOA with most loads.

December 25, 2011, 12:03 PM
The ATR is a better rifle than a 770, but that's not saying much. For more or less the same money a Marlin XL7 or Savage Axis is a far better choice.

December 25, 2011, 03:11 PM
Just purchased a Marlin XL7 in 30-06 with a laminate stock. Spent just over $350.- and could not be happier with my purchase, adjustable trigger and fluted bolt. Highly recommend you take a look before you buy. The GunBlast review was a lot of help in making a choice.

December 25, 2011, 05:18 PM
I think you will find that the Mossbergs are getting a lot of good reviews and those that have them are not selling them. Ought to say something :)

December 26, 2011, 12:36 AM
The Mossy's have pretty much the same features of the Marlin. It's not like the Marlin is built out of premium materials and the Mossy out of recycled plastic. There's very little difference in the actual rifles but I would give a slight edge to the Marlin. I think it's a better rifle than the Savage Axis too. All three are better el cheapo shooting sticks compaired to the Rem 770.

December 26, 2011, 01:07 PM
its tru i havnt herd bad things said about the mossberg once again thank you all guys you were great help very reliable thank you so much to all of you :)

+1 on the Marlin x rifles

December 26, 2011, 02:19 PM
Of all the rifles ever made, those are the only 2 I'd NEVER suggest any one ever buy.

Look at the Stevens 200, or Marlin in the same price range and have a MUCH better gun than either of those. For just a little more the Weatherby Vanguards are selling at many places for around $350. You can often find Remington 700 ADL's for the same price. There are much better choices on used racks.

find a nice LIGHT inexpensive stainless/synthetic rifle.remember,you may wind up carrying it all day

December 26, 2011, 02:42 PM
+2 on the Marlin. They're a little less readily available due to them not being sold at the big box stores, but if you want one, you can find one. I bought 2 over the last year. I did a couple tweaks such as floated the barrels and installed metal trigger guards. Whatever you get in a rifle, disassemble it and make sure the hardware is tight to the action and loc-tite the scope base. It's amazing how accurate the newer economy (don't call them cheap) rifles are. I would avoid the 770.

Don't own either, but have handled and shot both.
I prefer the Mossberg. We got one for my dad for Christmas the year before last because we were broke and he wanted a .30-06. It's a dandy rifle for the $244 we paid for it. He slapped a Bushnell Banner on it and it shoots plenty accurate. The only thing I don't like about it is you can work the bolt while it's on safety. That stinks because if you try and shoot it and the bolt is up a little, it won't fire. That's the only negative I have about it.
