Mossberg isn't usually my first thought when it comes to quality center fire rifles. That being said, I'd imagine it would do just fine depending on your needs.

IMO, I would save a little more $ and go with another brand. Just my opinion

If you are looking for a value based rifle, the savage 11/111 Nikon pro staff combos are hard to beat for $499. Ruger American would be another good option.

Good shooting guns for the money. The one I had would put bullets into each other if I did my part. A friend was so impressed he had to have it. I uld buy another but have plenty of truck / loaners in the safe

Heard the atr's kick hard and not very accurate... Never shot one though. Buy a savage!

I got a mossberg maverick same gun no fancy trigger and it shoots fine and hits what I aim at. Its a decent gun just not a great gun.

Bought one of the Maverick youth versions for my son in .243. Not real happy with it, as it does not always strip a round from the magazine and load when you work the bolt. Nothing like having the sights set on a deer and getting a click instead of a bang.

Bought a Mossberg MVP 308, looks like the Ruger Gunsight. Holds good at 100 yds. 18 1/2" barrel, don't notice a hard kick not worse than 270, heavy barrel . Have to work bolt on the strong side, not gentle. I like it.

Sighted in a 270 ATR for a coworker several years ago, got just under 1 inch 3 shot groups with Remington corloct 130gr ammo. Not bad for that price point gun. Action was a little rough but shot well.

They are awesome guns for the money. Accurate right out of the box for a very reasonable price. Yes you can buy a more accurate rifle for 3 times the money. Don't listen to these people about what they " heard".
