Another vote for the Savage rifles ...

Right Out Of The Box----

Too many to mention that are within your price range but the 111 LRH and 116 BH would be my choices for hunting. The 12 LRP is good too!

Good luck! Happy safe hunting/shooting.

A rifle would be another Savage, but really would rather spend it on a Specialty Pistol.

Re: With 1000 dollars what rifle would you buy and WHY?

New or used?
What will you be using it for?
What weight is too heavy or too light?
What caliber(s) would you consider?
Do you want it ready to go, or would you add anything to it?

Savage rifles generally do very well as mentioned already. However, I would also seriously consider a used Remington Sendero. More aftermarket parts, more gunsmiths who will work on them, better stock, and a bit more weight if you want to shoot larger calibers or longer range.

I have Savages and a Sendero, and they all perform well.
