we can not get the big calibers here in us. they have a reputation for shooting as good as a sendero

Rem 700 5r in 308 or 300wm, I own both and they both shoot as good as custom guns, rem700 sendero's are also proven tack drivers. Tons of aftermarket parts. I would throw a scope you hopefully already have on it for now and save a little more money for a good optic, you'll only be left with about 500 for scope after you buy a 5r or sendero both deserve a quality optic. At the minimum I would go with a mark 4 leupold or vortex pst which I did then upgraded to a vortex razor 5x20 on my 308 and night force nxs 5.5x22 on my 300, you will thank yourself later for buying good optics, it sucks to spend 2 grand or more on a scope but you'll only have to one time. Good luck.

thanks for the clarification , i think i can go with this solution :
Savage Model 10: The 1000 dollar 1000 yard rifle - YouTube

but i am afraid to take the step ......

whats your idea guys ?
You picked out the right rifle $1,000.00 for 1,000 yds. Now if you don't reload what caliber would be the most available where you are from? Give us a little more info so we can suggest more options.

As for a scope this one is in your budget and would be a good choice.

Vortex 4-16x44 Viper HS-T 30mm Rifle Scope

If you could save another $300 you could get a Vortex 6-24x50mm PST with rings and mounts. You can get both of these scopes in Mrad or MOA.

Vortex 6-24x50 Viper PST 30mm Rifle Scope

PS: I have a 6-24x50 mm Vortex PST FFP MOA scope and love it.
