Thinking about getting a tack driving bull barreled rifle in 308, and wonder if perhaps this would be a good and economical choice. I already have an 8-32x scope, but the thing's huge and long. Looking at the hammer, it looks like it may interfere, and the mount doesn't look too long. Any good way to deal with this or should I be picking another rifle for such a setup? I do prefer bolt actions, but this is a third the price of a Remington 700 VLS.
