I am new to rifles, but not firearms. I own a Hipoint .40S&W and a Mossberg 500 12ga. I was looking to get a .308 rifle, and as funds are a bit tight right now, I am leaning towards the Savage 111FCNS. I will be using it for plinking to start with, until I feel ready to go after some varmint (and of course for SHTF situations). For a beginner how is this rifle?
