best 1000 yards rifle for a budget

need advice guys. looking to put together 1000 yards rifle but for a budget. have a few things in mind, I want to hear some opinions.
I'm thinking about savage 6.5x284 norma or in a .308
a .300 winmag
7mm mag.
with the scope i think the Bushnell elite 6500 4.5 30x50. its the most reasonable one. Leupold vx-3 8.5-25x50 gets a bit pricy.not to mention the nightforce 5.5 22x50

    For targets, a Savage 12F is a great value. But, you don't really want to lug it around for hunting.

    300 win, 6.5x284 then 308. All Great rounds. For just punching paper and low cost go with the 308.

    6BR and 6.5x284 are 2 of my all time favorite cartridges to shoot.

    But, 308 is economical to shoot and match grade factory ammo is a big plus if you haven't started reloading.

    300WM will reach out there. But, more expensive.
