I have been through this one a few times. If I had to do it over again for $1500 I would probably go with the below.
Savage long range hunter in 300wsm Can be had for about $800.
Vortex viper hs long range 4-16 about $500
EGW 20 moa Base $40
Burris extreme rings $50
Dies RCBS $30
And would try and find a used press and other accessories used on forums and craigslist. My dad has picked up 2 full starter setups for $50 in the last 6 months.
Thats around $1500.
slso I would watch the forums and buy as much used as posable.
If I had to have all new stuff I would buy the cheaper savage rifle for around $450 and use the remainder for reloading supplys.
