This is my 3rd Marlin X7. Awesome trigger. Adjusts down to 2.5 lbs, and has zero creep. Crisp, clean break.
Marlin may not be a luxurious name, but this gun beats the heck out of the Rem 770 and Savage Axis.
I am OK out to just past 300 yards, but have had friends that are much better shots than me shoot my X7's farther. You don't have to go broke on a good gun. This one can out shoot me and my skill level any day of the week.
Bought this one strictly for inexpensive 100-300 yard target practice, and have no regrets. Keep in mind that the XTVH has a VERY thick, heavy bull barrel on it, so if you are going to be packing it through the woods, be aware. If you will be sitting in a box blind, or for target practice, you can't go wrong.
Also, the barrel is not floated, but I have no issues with bedding it.
My advice, order this gun from Bud's and bump up your scope budget. You won't regret.
