find a good Savage 110FP, and rebarrel it with something like a 6.5-06 barrel from Pacnor. Second choice would be a .280AI barrel

In order to give you a useful answer to your question, at a minimum, I would need to know your intended use(s) for the rifle.

If your budget is for rifle only, and not rifle scope combo, read the article "Long Range Hunting Rifle on a Budget." That would be the way I would go.

Used savage or Stevens action.. 250
Shilen or criterion varmint contour 7 stw.. 350
Bell and Carlson duramaxx. 100
Sharp shooter supply comp trigger.. 100
Gill style muzzle brake and installation.. 175


Bed it yourself with devcon 10110 and it will be just as accurate as any hunting gun out there and weigh 8 lbs unscoped. Shoots lights out... Mine does.
