Following your advice I'm leaning toward this one http://www.savagearms.com/116fhsak.htm.
$600 at Wally World. Can you help any with a scope? My co-worker was saying the scope in the package I had linked in the previous post may not be powerful enough. Again, haven't been doing any research on scopes so I better start. Thanks for any help.</end quote></div>
I'd stay away from any "package" deal that comes with a scope. It will likely be a crap scope and not worth the money.
The Model 116FHSAK looks like a decent rifle but be aware that it has a muzzle brake. This will make it painfully loud both for you and anyone hunting with you. Hunting guides I've talked to HATE them. It cuts recoil but it drastically increases noise. It will damage hearing unless you're wearing ear protection.
I suppose some more basic questions need to be asked about both the rifle and scope.
What is it that you intend to do with the rifle?
What do you intend to hunt?
Where are you going to be hunting?
What ranges will you be likely be shooting?
It's difficult to give a helpful suggestion about scope or even rifle without a little more detail about what you want to do with it.
