    I'm looking for a good inexpensive rifle for mostly range use shooting 100-200 yrds ... I didn't like the feel of the savage stvens 200, so I'm either looking at this for $300, marlin xl7 , or Remington. 770. Any suggestions???

    I picked up a Mossberg ATR100 in a trade last year.

    I don't know if it was the combo that comes with a scope and mounts or if the previous owner added the scope and mounts. But, they were crap. Even well tightened the rings came up out of the bases under recoil. They were "Weaver Style" but not Weaver brand. I replaced them with a 1 piece steel base/ring unit. Scope is not moving anymore and I have shot 2 deer with it this season.

    I haven't done any serious accuracy testing since replacing the scope mounts/rings but prior to that it was shooting about 1 1/2" 5 shot groups at 100 yards. Plenty accurate for taking deer out to 250 yards or so.
