I own a Mossberg Scout rifle in .308.. It is a bolt action with synthetic stock and works very well. No complaints about any of my Mossberg firearms as I own a couple of their shotguns too!

Have you looked at howa 1500s? I really like them. I think I heard mossbergs are made with a howa 1500 action, is that true?

Just curious if you looked at Ruger American. Very balanced rifles that shoot accurately with good optics.

I just watched a review on the 5 best rifles under 350 bucks. Mossberg was the worst because of accuracy. Ruger american and savage axis were the top 2. I have 2 axis in 7mm08 both youth models and both are very accurate with hand loads. Every bit as accurate as my tikkas are.

I looked at the ruger American all weather. I was hoping to spend about $5-700 but with that in mind I can get her a Tikka light for about $900. Puts a dent in my wallet but sheís worth every penny. Well on her way to great things.

Iíve been looking at a high end 7mm or 300 for myself but that can wait. She needs her own rifle first.

i have 3

2 new ones

the patriot predator in 308

and the MVP varmint in 308 , this feeds form AR-10 mags or M14 mags I use magpul 10 round Pmags

the mvp is nice but heavy mine is 11-12 pounds more of a range toy for me than a carry it all day hunting rifle

my son shot his deer with the Patriot predator which with muzzle brake and vortex 2-7x32 ready to hunt is 8 pounds 2 ounces

I don't think you can get a better rifle for the money than the Patriot predator the stock is a little cheap feeling but it shoots well , the only part that Mossberg won't sell you is the firing pin assembly and bolt body at least online I may call them and see if i can get a spare spring and firing pin not because I think they will break but with a spadre mag and 15 dollars in parts I can't see a good reason it couldn't last long enough that it might need a firing pin or spring. the bolt design is very simple yet effective and easy to clean out if you should say take a spill in the water

bolt handle ont he predator is bigger and easy to run

adjustable trigger 2 to 7 pounds I have mine around 2.5 I would guess don't need much lighter on a hunting rifle

22 inch fluted barrel threaded muzzle , if your looking for light recoil the AR stoner 30 cal muzzle break leaves you watching the animal fall in the scope nice so that your not off target during the recoil

I have a patriot in 308 and 22-250. I am very pleased with them. My 22-250 is synthetic and i basically live with it all winter lol. The 308 is walnut and it is a very pretty gun. They are both very accurate. The 308 is sighted in on american whitetail ammo and shoots about 1in groups consistantly. I am shooting handloads for the 22-250 and its about .5 in groups, but it was shooting between .5 and 1in groups with winchester factory ammo. I have been very pleased and taken many coyotes and a couple deer with them. For a cheaper gun, I would recommend it over a ruger american or savage. IMO you cant go wrong with a patriot.
