I am looking to buy a new rifle for the first time. I have three older bolt-actions, a shotgun and a pump 22. All have iron sights but I’ve really enjoyed them recently as I’m getting more and more enthralled in rifle shooting. I’ve got twenty plus handguns so I’m real familiar with many companies there but here’s what I have budgeted for: New rifle needs to have a scope, bolt-action in 223 caliber (cheap fun). Must be American made and no more than $500. I’m looking at: Savage Axis models Remington 783 Mossberg Ruger American Thompson Weatherby (highest priced but will only buy if they’re “that good”) Thanks!
