That's how much I have, and I want your opinion.

Savage would be first choice, then use the rest of the 1000 to get a quality barrel/stock and possible trigger if the accutrigger doesnt suit you. Second would be a remington 700 just becasue there is everything in the world for them. Also dont count out a custom action if you plan on blueprinting the rem action the custom doesnt really end up being all that much more expensive.

Is it to be for big game hunting, competition or varmints? For a few hundred more you can get a Cooper, and they are almost a custom from the factory.

There are many good deals in used rifles. Here is a place to check out:

If I couldn't find the good used Cooper I wanted, it would be a Savage.

Another vote for Savage if you are buying new..... Best out of the box accuracy for the money.... As PyroducksX3 said would use the rest of the money for a decent stock....

If buying used there are lots of possibilities depending on what you plan on shooting with it....
