I just got an 8 gun cabinet for Christmas, for one gun, so am starting the research for more guns. I am looking at a Marlin bolt action .22 (posted in Rim Rifles) and might want something a little heavier for longer range/bigger varmints. I think the Savage rifles are real shooters, this one comes with a 3-9/40 scope. Looking at 3 calibers, .223, .243 or the new .204 Ruger. Any owners, opinions would be appreciated. This will probably be a long search, don't have the money right now, don't need the gun right now and I enjoy the hunt and doing thorough research. Thank you.
