Re: Long range factory rifle

If you're looking for out-of-the-box accuracy, your best bet for your money would probably be a savage that comes with the accustock and accutrigger. the 111 LRH models have a good reputation. But really, any savage with those factory upgrades will do. As for a scope to go with it, if you buy a combo, ditch the scope. I need to ditch my factory scope for sure. Nikon makes some of the best for the money. with out a doubt, you can't go wrong with Nikon.

Re: Long range factory rifle

Savage is a great out of the box rifle. Next, I would look at the Remington 700 Sendero, Tactical or Varmit if you want to step up a little in price. From my experience, these have all shot very well. Just my 2's worth.

Re: Long range factory rifle

Look for any of the factory offerings that come with a muzzle break. Then you can shoot the heavier calibers with ease and not turn your shoulder to hamburger. To 500yds, 308, 7mm-08, 260, 6.5 Creedmoor, 25-06, 30-06, 284 Win, 280 Rem, 280AI would be the ones I would look for in standard calibers. If you want to go magnum, then anything 6.5mm and up would be the ticket. The most popular are the 300RUM, 7RUM, 300WSM/SAUM, 7WSM/SAUM, 7STW, 300 Win Mag, 338 Win Mag, 338RUM. So take your pick.

Re: Long range factory rifle

I would also look at the savage,and take alook at the weatherby sub moa vanguards. As for caliber I would look at 270, and 25-06 both will give you great performance for what you want. Scope, Nikon is best bang for the buck, as for the spot on I like the nikoplex and use turrets. I also have the bdc that also works well.

Re: Long range factory rifle

Ooooh, my bad, forgot about the 270 and 270WSM. Both excellent caliber. If you want a rifle on the cheap and option to upgrade as you can afford w/o the use of a gunsmith, the Stevens rifle is a great option.
