the savage lrh in 260 rem with a 4-16 vortex viper scope would be my pick just over your price range by a few bucks, but an awesome combo out to 1000

If you truly want to go long range forget other guns you want. put the money to were it will do you some good and have one made, just call and talk to gun makers that will make what you want. Give Q.M.M. A call.

Re: Best stock rifle for under $1000?

Not trying to pick a fight but I keep seeing 1200 plus dollar rifles showing up in this discussion and he clearly is looking for $1000 or less and stock. Now we have custom rifles etc coming to play.

I don't know, I have a stock rifle capable of LR, not ELR, it cost $700 at Cabela's and nothing has been done to it. At 1333 yards I did make a first round, cold bore, hit that would have taken a deer, elk, or even possibly a wolf. It was dead center and 10" low. Before that I had 4 shot group at 1050 that would taken a coyote. I did not do so well at 1482 yards but that was a wind reading issue, not a rifle issue. The group was good though. At 800 yards I have had consistent .5MOA groups.

Just trying to get this discussion back on topic. This reminds of the car dealers where a guy goes in for a Mazada 3 at 15000.00 and is told to buy a WRX STI at $35000.00 for communting to work. ha ha
