i would agree the price on the used gun seems high. This year, all my hunts so far have been with a short action 308 Stainless BLR Lightweight, light contour 20 inch barrel, set up with aluminum rings/base and 1.5x5 scope it is an ideal lightweight/fast t carry rifle. Going to the long action 22 inch 30-06, changes the weight and handiness a bit, about 1/2 pound heavier and three inches longer, but is still very much a handy carry rifle, but have the power advantage of a 22 inch 30-06. Have a 22 inch, short action BLR in 7mm WSM, which sort of cuts the specs in half, do not find it a problem at all in the woods. A short action 22 inch BLR in 300 WSM would do that for you, if reloading, fitting everything from light deer loads to grizzly busters. Keep an eye on GB for a used rifle, sometimes a very good deal can be had.
