    Heading to a gun show tomorrow, I don't "need" anything ... but y'all know how that always turns out. If I'm not looking to drop to much cash (ie: around $300) what should I be on the lookout for in terms of a used centerfire rifle?

    Look for A late model 11 or 111 Savage with the Accutrigger. The 11 is the short action the 111 the long. You might even have enough left to buy scope mounts for it!

    I doubt you will find a 16 or 116 (Savage's stainless model) for $300 but you might add a little and come away with a great gun.

    A used Tikka T3 Lite in blue could probably be had for a little over $300. Another great gun. Slickest bolt on the market and the trigger is also quite good.

      Instead of used I would buy that new Marlin bolt gun. A new one is around 300 bucks. A used gun might have been sold because there was a problem. Inaccurate for example.

        .223 or a 17 hmr.

          I don't like buying used just for the fact that you do not know why the person is giving the gun up or how he treated it. I only buy used guns from people I know and take their word on it.
