I'm pretty new here and nobody really knows who I am so to return all the helpful info I've been getting. I thought I would give some info that may help some new shooters and new hunters that will be looking at rifles on a budget.
I recently bought a NIB Mossberg 100ATR .30-06 ($295) synthetic stock (faux wood) stainless barrel as a backup/loaner rifle. I added a Limbsaver slip-on recoil pad, mounted a used off Ebay Nikon 3-9x40 Prostaff ($110 shipped) Leupold scope rings using the bases that came with the gun. Its a basic package that doesn't cost alot of money but is definitely useable. Here are some pics

I took it to the range today to sight in the rifle I shot Winchester Super-X 150gr factory ammo cost around $20 a box.

I got it sighted in and I must say I was impressed the trigger is basically an Accutrigger clone and it broke cleanly and had zero creep in it. The stock is stiff and didn't seem to have any noticeable flex in it. The rifle handled nicely and recoil was noticeable but it didn't beat me up I shot 20 rds and my shoulder isn't sore at all. I'm 6'2" at 165lbs. Here are some 3 shot groups

I was averaging 1 inch groups to 1.5 inch groups and that 1.875 group had a called pull in it but as you can see it is definitely acceptable to hunt with. I hope this review is helpful to people who sees this and helps repay all the help I've received as a new hunter.
