I have the Howa 1500 in 30-06. Love the rifle. Nikon Monarch 3-9 on mine. I can't use the damn thing here much though. Most areas I hunt are shotgun only and when I do get into a rifle zone I usually take the lever as it's pretty thick cover. Oh well, one day again I'll take her for a hike in the woods.

My Dad bought a Marlin 25-06 to keep back in South Dakota for Deer. I haven't shot it yet but he says it shoots nice.
