Save your money, spend less and get a better rifle!

Savage 10,110, 11 or 111
Stevens 200 same as a savage 10 and 110 but no accu trigger not a big deal as you can still adjust the trigger.

Mossberg rifles come and go out of production,

Savage is here to stay!!!! Always was always will be known for accuracy and value. And will always out shoot higher price rifles.

A base model Savage in .308 will beat any Mossberg rifle OOTB. Stay away from their "upgraded models" however, the extra options are not quality enough to be worth the extra $. I would also avoid detachable box magazine versions if you have any plans to go with higher capacity, as their 10rd mags cost a ridiculous $125+ each...........

If looking for something within the price range but more options with quality, start looking for a used Ruger.

I'm wondering why you're "upgrading"? You've got a great rifle in a great all-purpose caliber ... semi-automatic with 10 rd magazine capacity is something a lot of folks trade their bolts away for. Are you looking to step down the caliber?

Skip the Mossberg. Get a Ruger. Or any of long list of good but affordable rifles.

I have the ATR in 30-06 and it is a poor rifle. I bought my daughter the Marlins XL7 in 308 and highly recommend it or the Savage with the accutrigger. Stay away from the axis if possible, they are a step down in the wrong direction.

Do not totality discount buying used, with the way that the economy is going there are some good deals out there on lightly used firearms. Do your research before you buy and pay cash.

what was wrong with your atr? the stock? yes its not the best in the world but for the price thats expected my shoots sub moa so im ok with them and i agree that the xl7 is a much more solid feel of a rifle.
