Or would it be worth it to save and get a Stevens 200 .308? Which is better for price?

I got the Stevens 200 308 for the mid $300's. Great rifle, has the tupperware stock, and it kicks like a mule. I could only ever stand to shoot about 5-6 rounds. Pretty accurate, and you can buy all sorts of add-ons.

Save for the 200. Its a model 10 with old style trigger (still adjustable) and ugly gray stock. I had a axis in .223 and regretted not going with the stevens. A nikon prostaff would be a good scope.

Nikon ProStaff 3x9x40. Having a $30 instant rebate right now. $130 total. Hard to beat that deal.

For that range and price just pick up a Bushnell.
