Got a buddy that's just getting into deer hunting and he's looking at a Remington 700 SPS Buckmaster in 30-06. It's a blued barrel with Mossy Oak camo synthetic stock and comes with a Nikon Prostaff 3x9x40. He's found one new on sale with rebate for $649. I don't know anything about this gun so is this a good gun and a good price?

Thanks!
