Whether you are a new to hunting or a longtime outdoorsman needing a replacement gun, now is a great time to pick up a scoped rifle package. With suggested retail prices starting at less than $400, I don’t think there has ever been a better time to make your gun dollar stretch so far. The great thing is that you are not buying a throwaway gun. With modern materials and construction, manufacturers are able to make great-quality shooters while keeping prices down. Let’s take a look at some of the scoped rifle packages currently available.

Howa Hogue Gameking Scoped Package

For a lifetime of great hunting, the Howa Hogue Gameking delivers. These bolt-action rifles provide the performance, customizable options and top-notch features that make even the pickiest of shooters sit up and take notice.

The company starts with its famous Howa 1500 action and mates it to a standard, magnum or heavy barrel 20 to 24 inches long, depending on the caliber. The action and barrel is blued. Howa equips each of these rifles with a Hogue Overmolded stock. This is the same pillar-bedded stock to which other shooters have to upgrade their rifles. Both green and black versions of the stock are available in all calibers.

To ensure accurate shot placement, the company offers the rifle with a Nikko Stirling Gameking 3.5-10x44mm riflescope that is factory mounted. This scope has fully multi-coated lenses, 0.25-MOA adjustments and a dual-illuminated (red and green) LRX reticle to help you take game moving at twilight.

When it comes to calibers, Howa likely has what you are looking for. From the .204 Ruger to the .338 Winchester Magnum, the Gameking can be had in a caliber to hunt any game animal on the North American continent. With suggested retail pricing starting at just $654, these scoped rifles offer an outstanding lifetime value.
