I can recommend, with the others previous, a Rem. VS .308.

A Rem. 700 with a 5R barrel might be an inexpensive option too. They are great shooters "out the box" [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]...sakofan..

Re: Inexpensive (relatively), tough, accurate rifle...any ideas?

I'll chime in in favor of Savage. A earlier poster said they shoot out of proportion to their price and this is very true. A few months back the sig arms rep for our area dropped by the range with their straight pull "tactical" rifle package. You know one of those "hey look at our spiffy new rifle" kinda things. My savage out shot his blazer .34 to .77 moa. Ive got a 112BVSS in 300 WM. He sure did turn red when I mentioned to the other shooters about the price differance(1/4th). Check out the savage. they can be had with any one of 6 stock options up to and including a mcmillan if you want it. Its better to spend the $ on the glass anyway.

I think you have to look seriously at the Savage.

I once bought a new 300 Win mag in a Savage. Took it to the range and fired some rounds that were printing a foot apart from left to right. That was the last time I dealt with Savage. No more never again.

My son just had a .30/338 Lapua built up on a Savage action; brake on the front and in over 50 years of shooting .30 caliber rifles of ALL KINDS...I "ain't" seen nair one what'll stay with this one! And I've had some damn accurate LR rifles in .30 cal for NRA HP shooting! No contest busting 1 gal. milk jugs from 800 yds.!! I don't own one; just shot this one of my sons but I probably will before long!

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
