    Without breaking the bank, the Savage rifles are a good starting point. What do you intend to do with this rifle, and at what distance? Punch paper, hunt, long distance steel? Do you reload? What kind of glass are you willing to put on it?

    With some of these blanks filled in, you'll get more useful answers, and welcome to The High Road! :)

    I have a bunch of .223's

    I have a Browning Abolt, great gun, super accurate
    Remington M-700 LTR, super accurate, perfect size for me, maybe my favorite
    Remington M-7, great truck, walking varmint rifles, Camping/SD, love this one too.
    Ruger M-77, best all around rifle super accurate, durable, great ranch rifle, a bit heavy.
    Stevens 200, great value. Just sold it so I can buy a Savage with Accu-Stock.

    They are lots of fun. I love to shoot mine. Cheap, accurate, deadly on most things.
