I just read in the Bi-Mart sales flyer for the two days after Thanksgiving (Black Friday) that They will be selling their Savage Model 111 in various big bore (30-06, .308, .270, etc.) for a few pennies less than $300. I think that is a steal because I have handled a few of those and they have a really smooth action. I read a review of these guns by Massad Ayoob and he was quite pleased with them. Check it out!
