First Bolt action rifle question.. opnions

hello wanted to get my first bolt action.
range use only in 223 so i can shoot more.

question is for my first bolt gun should i start with a cheap savage axis/w Scope for $300 to start off and learn or just get what i want, the savage 10FCP-K for $800 plus $300 for a nikon scope.

ive only shot ar-15's at the range 2x so far. range has 50-100-200-400 yard targets

what you guys think?

will i end up selling the axis for the 10fcp-k or just start with the 10fcp-k from the start?

Buy once, cry once! Get what you want right out of the gate. That is a great rifle. I have the VLP. You'll never regret getting the accu-trigger. You'll eventually want to look into an aftermarket stock. I suggest Stockade Stocks.

Buy one that fits you and your needs. Go and pick up a bunch of models from different manufacturers. I have picked up guns before that I thought I would not like and the felt really good.

223 is a great choice. Inexpensive to shoot. Low recoil. Lots of fun. Don't be afraid to check out the used rack. Lots of good deals out there.
