Which one would you chose
I have a few options to choose from
Savage Striker 510 in .308
with a Bushnell 2-6 scope and added brake for about $675 (including shipping and transfer). It is blued.

Savage Striker 516 in 7mm-08, no brake but the same scope installed, stainless and price will be few bucks less than the previous one.

I am thinking about one more option, not a bolt action but still a good one... Blued encore with three barrels 30-06 (with a scope one it), 308 and 410/45, wooden and rubber grips and forends (2 sets) and a nice wooden box. Out of my budget but still not too much... around $825

All of them look great. I would really like a bolt action handgun but at the same time this Encore will give me 410 barrel for turkey season and I will have a barrel for long-distance as well. I don't really care for a scope that is included, I will use my 3-12 Burris.
From a previous discussion about 400-yard striker caliber
I could see that .308 and 7mm-08 are great rounds.

Unfortunately, I cannot get them all (I would love it tho) I need to win a lottery to pay for this addiction. I was just thinking to buy a new barrel for my encore, that is how it started and look at it now! Does this ever stop? Plus other hobbies are not making it any easier Smile
Your thoughts about these options are appreciated.

To be honest I am thinking the same.
