I really missed having a 30.06 in the stable and came across this deal at our local Scheels Sporting Goods. Its a Savage 111 Trophy Hunter XP in 30.06 and got it for $469, less than $500 out the door. 30.06, Nikon 3-9 with BDC and Acutrigger, I thought it was a really good price and bought one.

Bring on the Savage haters!

    Good pick up, congrats. I mean, you suck! :P

    No Savage hater here, I like 'em.

    I bought a 116 TH XP last fall in 6.5-284 Norma and it's quickly becoming one of my favorite rifles. I want to upgrade to a Boyds laminate stock, but I'm not sure about the bottom metal...need to do a little research, I guess.
    You have the right to your own opinion, but you don't have the right to your own facts:guns:

    Nice rifle. I am sorely lacking in the .30-06 department.

    That would be hard to pass up at that price, nice find.

    I'm not trying to enable you or suggesting you buy one just to buy one. But to me the .30 '06 should be a part of every man's battery. It's like a .22, .45acp or a 12ga. Plus you can kill dang near anything with one.
    So if you think you might want one, keep your eyes open and maybe you'll run across a deal. It occurred to me just the other day that except for my wife's Christmas present last year, I haven't bought a NIB gun in many years. I'm always cruising the used racks.

    I prefer the 30-30 as my a standard. My platform for my 30 cal is a lever action Marlin 336W. Just something about those old Winchesters and Marlins. And I use iron sites only on those out of 200 yards.

    You surely don't have a Marlin lever gun in 30-06. Did you intend to modify this post??? Forgive me for missing your joke........
    There's no such thing as having too much ammo, unless you're on fire or trying to swim!

    Having never had a 30 06 myself in nearly 40 years on firearms ownership and hunting I too bought one, an older, but well cared for Remington BDL about 3mths ago.
    I'm liking it alot
    Congrats, fine choice.
