Re: Best stock rifle for under $1000?

im in the same boat, had a m77 7mag but ended up selling that one. looking to get something that reaches out again....the rem 700 setups seem to be the best option for under a grand. would love to find a 338rum but not very many out there from my gunbroker searches etc so ill probably end up with a 300rum or win mag. definitely want something capable at taking anything I might end up going after/getting lucky enough to draw for be it deer, elk, antelope, ram hell possibly even a bear at some point.

Re: Best stock rifle for under $1000?

I have several rifles in my safe. Some stock 700s, 70s, 110s, and T3s. I also have a couple customs as well. Out of all my stock rifles, my Tikka T3s have impressed me the most especially for the money. You can pick up a T3 lite stainless for 680 at sportsmans warehouse. My next purchase is going to be another T3 in 270 wsm to use as a mid range pack rifle.

Whats the best stock rifle right out of the box for under $1000?'

I am also thinking of buying a cheap Remington 7400 and sending it to asi and get a accurate Semi auto rifle for under or right around $1000.

I really like the 7400 idea because I grew up hunting with one.

Which should I get?
Just- i can't tell what he intends to hunt with it .......squirrels, elk, deer, coyotes, moose , javelinas. not many use a rem 7400 base for a build. rare.

Re: Best stock rifle for under $1000?

Check out the new Remington 700 Long Range. It has a Bell And Carlson stock with the bedding block. Has a heavy barrel. I think its available in 25-06, 7mm Rem and 300 win. I think the MSRP is around 850. It looks a lot like the original Sendero's Remington brought out in the early-mid 90's and they were some of the most accurate factory rifles ever made. Then I would check out Cameralandny.com for optics. I bought a Vortex Viper 6.5-20 with the dead hold BC reticle for 325 to my house. Its a good scope for the money. Then go to midway and buy a egw 20moa base and some Burris signature rings and you'll be able to get to 1000 yds with a little practice. And you should be under your 1500 dollar budget . You would probably have a little left over for some reloading components. This is the route I would go plus if you get the itch to build something in the future you have a really good platform to build off. Hope this helps.
