Have pretty much decided on Ruger American in .30-06 for elk hunt this year. Watching here for one (or Remi 700 or ...?) or will get one at Bi-Mart. New they don't come with scopes. Several people have endorsed Nikon: good quality, optics and reasonable prices. Recommendations for this application and use? Also where to buy? Bi-Mart also OR are there other sources to recommend? Online or stay away from that option?
