    No experience with any Mossberg other than shotguns, but the .308 is a fantastic do-it-all cartridge!

    General sensus was they were not great, especially the package deal.

    The ATR series got some pretty bad reviews, and some bolts came apart when they were first released, if I remember correctly.

    I'd take a look at the MVP series though. They seem to get decent reviews.

    Caveat Emptor comes to mind... I'm a Remington action fan, I hunt with a adl 700 shoot f-class and precision tactical with a custom built surgeon. Howa makes an awesome entry level rifle too, but the Mossberg is junk.

    If you want a good SUB-MOA rifle for entry level price look at the Remington 700 xcr II, readily available $650 price point. With good glass and matched ammo this rifle will get you out to 700-800 yards with practice.

    My advise is based on the assumption your wanting to shoot long distance but not solely a hunting rifle. The Remington 700 action is the industry standard, my f-class rifle (2000 yard rifle) uses a Surgeon 1581xl action based on the 700 action. With the popularity of the 700 action, the rifle can grow with your skill level relatively easy. Remington does a great job with stock actions being true, most of the time only needing blue printing and very little trueing.

    I'll im you some links, they aren't on the "approved" list...

    I don't have any experience with the Night Train, but I do have the ATR in .30-06. It is a pretty :censored: good gun. Just upgraded the stock to a Boyds thumbhole. I have heard alot of good things about the ATR in general also. The early ones had issues, but the new ones are great. If you are on a budget, the ATR would make a great gun for you.
