Hey guys! I just got my first rifle last week! I got it from Bashaw sports - awesome store! Highly recommended.

It's a Savage 116 FCSS Weather Warrior in 30-06, and I put a Redfield Revolution 3-9x40 scope on her. All said and done, it came in under $1100 for both.

What do you think?

It is an older model, without the accustock. It's the only place in Alberta that I have found that had this rifle in this caliber in stock, so I jumped on it.

I don't intend to! Now I just need to become proficient in using it! I think I have an excuse to buy a second gun... A .22 for target practise! Much cheaper ammo... lol...

For the amount of money I would spend on, let's say, 500 rounds for my 30-06, I could buy a new .22 with a scope, and put over 2800 rounds through it...

That's more then all of mine combined, haha!

I must say, though, the more stainless I see, the more I'm starting to like it...

Nice choice josh, 30-06 is my work horse caliber, for me it does it all (big game) of course
