    I am going to the gun show tomorrow. I am looking for an inexpensive
    rifle in .308 0r 30-06. No special purpose, I just want one.
    What should I look for?
    Thanks

    I have a mini14 and a 10/22. I want something with more umph!

    the Winchester Model 70 Black Shadow is not very expensive, about $400 or so. Sorry I keep plugging Winchester, but it's what I researched prior to purchase, and I'm super happy w/ mine.

    Why not a mauser?

    I have a Yugo M48A that shoots 3 inches at 100 yards with the crappy standard sights. With a good scope or peep sights, I could bring that down an inch or two.

    Besides that, the 8x57 is an excellent round. Same power levels as the .30-06. Surplus ammo is wonderfully cheap and if you reload, you can put together premium hunting ammo inexpensively.

    for a semi auto .308 check out a FAL or a russian VEPR

    neither are "cheap"

    do some price shopping on www.gunsamerica.com so you know the ballpark
