Seriously, your best bet is to handle as many rifles as you can, mount them with your eyes closed then open your eyes and see where you're looking. Pick the one that feels right and mounts naturally so your eyes align with the scope or sights.
I'm kind of spoiled by my brownings (A-bolts), but like most think it up to you and what feels best. They will all do the job most likely.
That said, if money is a factor, I go back to something my dad told me when growing up~: "If limited by money, get a cheaper gun, but a better scope." I have found this to be true. So make sure you have enough dough left over for a good scope, you won't be sorry.
I have owned and shot all major brands and lots of brands that you have never heard of.
the posters above will not steer you wrong, but look outside the window a little
CZ 550 has it all, plus you will get GREAT trigger, that is a GREAT SET trigger, don't get me wrong I enjoy the Savage trigger, but you only have one weight, with the set trigger you do not have to use it, you can use the normal pull.
How many times have you wished for a better view across a clear cut, an agriculture field or down a powerline?
Ever wanted to get a little higher to try to get above a deer’s nose?
Have you ever wanted a taller stand because… well… just because?
Here is an example of a stand I made a few years ago and it has some very real advantages and a few disadvantages.
commanding view from the stand
able to accommodate two hunters, perfect for parent / child hunts
hunters are well...
