    Suggest you add the Marlin X series rifles to your list of rifles to consider. Own three of them myself. Each of mine shoot well for accuracy. Nice adjustable trigger on the Marlin. Have crossed paths with a few Marlin X rifle owner at range I'm a member. None of them regretted buying the rifle. Mind you, none of us were impressed with its plastic stock, but it was functional for hunting.. Me, I do not hunt, so I made replacement wood stocks for all my Marlins to shoot them from benchrest.

    I've had the 783 in .260 win for over a year now. Bought it as a back-up hunting rifle for my R 700 in 30-06.

    This rifle out-shoots anything I have and will be my main hunting rifle for this year's Montana hunt (we have deer tags, a cow-elk and antelope, so it will see a good workout). The only thing I don't like about this rifle is the sling-mounts, other than that is a WAY more solid rifle than a Savage or a Ruger (if you ain't picked it up - don't comment) and shoots 3/8" groups at 100 yards

    Here's a target group from the rifle someone above said "isn't worth considering"
