Help me build a rifle... I've got a dealer who will trade me on some of my shotguns for a rifle and I'm curious as to what the best gun for the money is out there right now; I've not kept up on rifles much over the last few years. I'll be shooting mostly targets, some coyotes and varmints, and maybe deer (not much of a deer hunter, sorry guys, prefer quail). In my state (OK), .22 caliber is legal for deer with 55 gr. bullet so factor that into the equation. I also don't want an "off" brand rifle with no resale value. Don't know much about scopes, either, as I've always just put on a Leupold or Redfield for what I needed.
