Probably a Savage may be your only option for that price. Go check Walmart they have some cheap rifle/scope combos on occasion.

Not going to be easy to find a bolt action for under $250 unless you find something used. On VERY rare occasions, you can find 700 ADL's on sale for between $249 and $286.

Mossberg 100 ATR is on sale now at Academy for $286. Academy's regular price on 700 ADL's is $308, I think. The base line Savages run around $300.

Look at pawn shops. The ones around here always have nice used guns. Most shops inspect and clean the guns and guarantee the gun to work properly. I saw a used Remington 700 30-06 with a Leupold scope the other day for $399. I would have bought it myself, but I was short about $397. Anyways, Pawn shops are great. I've bought several guns from pawn shops and never had a problem with any of them.

You could get a used Savage for around 250, but why? Just use that Marlin you've got, it'll do fine for killing deer. Rare is the shot deer that couldn't be killed as easily by a 30-30, as by a 30-06.

I got the impression, from his use of the past tense, that he no longer owned the .30-30.

Check gunbroker they have lots of used 30-06's in many diffrent prices.
If not go and find the Stevens Mod 200,they can be had for as much as 270.00 to 230.00 is the cheapest I've found.They are a better gun than the mossberg and pretty good quality for the bucks$

For whatever it's worth, my first gun I ever purchased was a Savage 110GLin a 7mm08 that I paid $225 for. That was 16 yrs ago, and the gun is still a killer.. Floated the barrel, and it's a tackdriver!

The Stevens should be easy to find and within your price range, also more accurate than most of us shooters will prove to be!
