Re: Rifle suggestions

Blazers are awsome im more of a tactical 2 kinda guy.

I did just learn of a savage 110 tactical i was not aware of. Did they stop making then? Anyone know how they shoot?(and feel - fit)
And what cal.s they offered.
If 6.5 06 were common it would be that but (settled )on 25 06. I have a great shooting 270 win.

Savage makes a 110-BA in 338 LM and perhaps a couple of other calibers.

Howa also makes some tactical style varmint rifles in various calibers.

There are plenty of good options for under $1k.

I'm not sure about the price or availability, but Sako TRG 22 in 260 Rem might otherwise fit the bill.

They have a .308, 300 Win Mag, and 338 Lapua in the Savage 110/10 BA models.

Mcmillan A5 would also be a great stock but it puts him north of 1k. I'd say for less that 1K get a tika or savage in .308 or creedmore.

He could always get the B&C A5 for $379 from Stocky's Stocks.

Re: Rifle suggestions

How about a 264 WIN. MAG.? My buddy has one and he is shooting close to 6" groups with a bipod at 1,000 yds. One of the flattest shooters out there with great BC. 140 gr. Berger Match VLDs BC = G7 313.

PS: This is the stock I got plus a few options like adjustable cheek, 3 pillers & under forearm rail & blind sling swivel under butt stock:
