I'm looking at purchasing a hunting rifle in 308, and not an AR10. I've tried figuring out a "new rifle" up to about $800.. I would like to stay at $800 total but since it'll be next year before deer season starts again I've got time to scope up.. But I'm about to head to Eastern Oregon and my grandad in law is the master of gun smithing and will set me up with ammo if I take a gun up there to show him. So I've got a couple used I am looking at. #1 is a Tikka T3 . The gun has a 22" barrel. The exterior of the gun does have rust. Comes with a Leupold VX-I 3-9x40mm. Has a sling and a recoil pad. Pitting dos not look too bad but it is spread out. The bore is rust free. #2 is a Savage 11 also 22" and looks like it was a package deal when new as it has the bipod, and Nikon Scope .. Condition is good with few tiny usage nicks.. The tikka is $695 Savage is $495. I plan to camo dip any gun I purchase so it should cover any rust cleaning damage. I've shot a Savage before but not with the accu trigger which I assume it has.. Tikka I'm not familiar with other then internet reviews and forum talk. Price point I can see having money for a different scope on savage and I'm sure the Leupold would be fine for the Tikka.. I need help here and hoping for a consensus on which "if you had a choice" would you purchase? Thanks!
