    I have looked at the Remington 710 and the Savage Model 10 or 11 with the Accutrigger. I know neither of these is top of line, but I figure just for deer hunting at 100-150 yards I dont need a very expensive rifle and scope.

    Any experience with either of these models? I'd probably get it chambered in 30-06, any thoughts on that?

    definitely get the savage 10 over the 710. everything i read or am told about the 710 says they're garbage.

    .
    Get the Savage. I too have been told that the 710's are crap.

    I believe the term they used was the retarded cousin to the 700

    Ok I also have a 30-30 that was my great-grandfathers, it's a Winchester model 94, manufacture date 1943-1948.

    Anyone have tips on using the peep sight on it?

    It should look like though when you line it up (though your front sight may differ)

    focus on the front sight, not the rear or the target. It'll come to you.

    Cool thanks.

    Anyone have any experience with scope mounting on these? It's a top eject, and everything I've read has said use either a side mount or a "scout" mount. Anyone ever used either of these scope mounting systems?

    Would a scope be a decent investment? Or should I just stick to iron sights?

    Also, if you are interested I can post pics of this 94 and also my great-grandfathers Remington Model 11 Sportsman 12 ga semiauto circa 1944.

    If you havent shot alot, I would recomend that you learn to shoot with the Iron sights.

    A scout scope mount is where the scope is mounted over the barrel instead of the receiver. Think the Scout in CS :o. From what I have heard, side mounts are kind of :ugh: because if you adjust windage or elevation, you have to adjust the other one as well.

    Ah I didnt know that about the side mounts, thanks.

    I have shot a lot, I've had 22s and such, I was just debating on a new bolt action combo, shooting the 30-30 w/ iron sights, or shooting the 30-30 w/ scope.

    Sorry if I came off like a jerk, I'm sure just about everyone on here has done more shooting than me.

    Just wondering if people had experience with those setups I was curious about.

    I have the Savage Model 11 and I Love it. I got the 7mm Mag, but where I have my stand my longest shot would be about 400yds.

    I use and old 30-30 that i've had for a while for brush hunting.
