Not getting a semi auto. Don't think i can hunt with those in pa yet. Just want a solid bolt action for ground hogs and to get started reloading. Not sure if you are thinking about an AR or something similar.

I would suggest a Savage bolt action, fuzzy. It would be a repeater, not bad cost, and accurate. I own 2 savage rifles. I really like the .223 round.

 I have my issued M4 at work and I shoot it. 5.56 is a wicked round.  O0

Yeah, most likely. You can also find good used scopes. Used scopes have no set price like most everything else does. You can really deal on them.

The last used scope I bought was $20. I cleaned it up and sold it for $50. It had rubber coating that turned to tar. I easily cleaned the "tar" off with wood alcohol and underneath was a nice blued scope.

I really don't know about them either. I have not had any dealings with them.
