Savage 116 all weather Stainless Steel in 30/06 or 308 Either one is good for 400yds and beyond . 150gr bullets for deer and 180-220gr for moose elk bear or whatever . 125gr for varmits. Is that an easy choice ? Ammo can be found most anywhere. Savages shoot very well for a factory gun .
If you dont like the recoil you can always put a brake on it . As for scopes take a look at Weaver, Leupold, or bushnell elite scopes in the 4x12x50 - 4x20x50
