still looking need new rifle

im looking for a gun that can take black bear elk and deer on the oregon coast out to 6-700 yards. i want a factory rifle that has to have lil work done to it. but need it to be light when im packing it in the timber just want a rifle that can also reach out and kill something when i walk into a big clear cut. im open to calibers and diff rifle makers would like to stay under a $1000 just for the rifle thank you

For under a grand i dont think you can do any better than this
Savage Arms Firearms > 111 Long Range Hunter

i would go with the 7mm there is a great selection of long range bullets

I love that gun! Is the .300wm enough to take a bear at 700 yards?
