Re: Best accurate rifle / scope combination under $2k

I was too late. They are already out of stock. That is exactly what I wanted to get.

    This is 50% more than $2K, but it has turned out to be a real shooter, and the quality feel of a Manners or McMillan stock along with the solid feel of a Nightforce is well worth it. I have friends that shoot full custom's and this is 99% of what they have at 1/2 the price. It is for sure a gamble that a factory tube will shoot well no matter what stock you bed it in. I lucked out.

    1. Weatherby Vangaurd S2 .300 Win Mag $460
    2. Sell factory Weatherby Stock ($50)
    3. Manners MCS-T $525
    4. Glass Bedding - DIY - JB Weld $20
    4. 20 MOA Warne Tactical Steel Scope Base $120
    5. Used Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x56 HS ZS MOAR
    Bought from Bob Beck at EOL $1,700
    6. Nightforce Ultralight Low Rings $170
    7. ACD $30

    Good Luck!
    Jason

    For either option, use EGW HD aluminum bases, and TPS TSR HD aluminum rings.

    I think you would be very happy with either setup to get you started into long-range shooting and hunting.
    This is an excellent suggestion for you.

    Thanks! With either of those setups, he would be right at the $2K mark, maybe just slightly over by $100-150.
