best 308 cal out of the box ?

guys i have few AR15 rifles and want to start shooting long range 1000 yard shooting. what is the best 308 bolt gun out of the box ? i know this question is really not fair, so many different brands out there. looking to spend under $1000 ( i have a nice scope for gun already ). Looking for a box magazine, 24 inch barrel, maybe synthic stock so i dont stratch it up on the bench, what about the thumb hole stocks , they sure feel good ? i have a tikka 3 in 243 cal and love it. what to make sure the gun is heavy enough for recoil will be shotting 100 rounds per day maybe. i was thinking savage with accu trigger or tikka 3. what do you think ? thanks. Marty

By far the Savages! You can get them for under $1000 from Northlander on the Savage Shooters forum.Palma, F Class or BR modelsI would not limit myself to 24" IF you are talking shooting F class for example. you are losing an extra 100-150 fps. Look at the Berger 185s also as the go to bullet.BH

for out of the box one of the savages. f-class, br or f-tr. they are going to be near 1000. shooting a the 308 at 1000 yards is not easy. hopefully you reload.
