    I had seen a rifle in one of the local Walmarts and decided I would like to have a .308 hunting rifle.I wanted to stay with a .308 because I still have components to reload for it.
    I went to the local gunshop, because I tend to buy stuff from them more because of quality and selection issues at WM. I initially was looking at a "package deal" Savage, but they had a MarlinXS7 bare bones package.
    I looked it over, it was like buying a custom rifle almost. It had a savage like trigger, bolt, and barrell assembly. A Winchester like reciever, and bolt release. A Remington like bolt knob, and safety. It felt good to shoulder.
    I bought the rifle and the rings there, and went to WM to get the sling and a Bushnell 3-9x40 scope to get started, later I might get another Nikon or go for one of those Redfields. I am looking forward to putting some rounds downrange, and see how it performs.
