Let me help you out!!! GO WITH THE SAVAGE!!!I found this Winchester XPR .270 with Vortex scope combo
They have same gun in .243. So I’m still between the two calibers.
And this Savage 111XP .270 with a Nikon scope on it.
I like the combos because I really don’t feel like guessing which rings or bases I need. Also this is just a first time maybe hunt with it a few times kinda thing. I don’t want to go crazy or make myself crazy frettin over rifles and which scope and all that. Nice factory combo for the kid. My gut tells me the Winchester may be better than the Savage by a bit but the Nikon may be better than a bottom line Vortex. Savage does has button rifled barrel.
Have I convinced you guys to convince me to go with the Savage yet?
Also not sure he’d like a FDE colored gun as the one he borrowed was black and he was really hoping for a camo gun cuz you know ‘that’ll kill more deer dad!’
