Just joking, that is an excellent rifle you can get these days for like $600 with a scope included... Not my caliber though...
Haha good one. Yeah I bought it back in 2012 for ~$575. I didn't like the weaver scope it came with so I replaced it with a Vortex Viper. I also put on a Boyd's thumbhole stock and replaced some other components. Its a trusty rifle.

No as there’s a practical component to it.

So far I’ve avoided these calibers as I don’t hunt and want to keep things relatively cheap for target shooting. If I can get a handle on reloading I’ll look. Great prices for rifles though.
If you hunt around for deals you can find cheaper 7.62x51 (NATO .308) I sold mine a couple years ago, but I was getting it for 50-55 cents/rd.

This for sure. If you get the axis with the accutrigger they'll still tend to be pretty accurate, but flimsier stock, worse recoil pad, won't hold it's resale value nearly as well. FV is a heavy barrel though so for lugging around hunting on foot I might opt for something a bit lighter and better balanced, but for mostly range days, hunting off of quads etc... this'd be the better choice.

Yes, and there are courses to prepare you for the exam. Usually 2 days, with lot of hand-on familiarization w firearms. Usually around $250 including exam.

Depending where you leave, we can probably point you in the right direction.

Postponed, true. But it won't last for ever...

Thanks for the post, I got it for $449 plus taxes.

Not bad for a 308 bolt action.

Still not affordable to shoot personally. I have a .308. But pretty much shoot my .22lr about 99.99% of the time instead. $35 for 500 rounds... can't be beat.

My safety instructor said that they now have two machines to print PAL cards. That being said I have been waiting for about a month.
