Re: Best accurate rifle / scope combination under $2k
Thanks everyone for the great responses. This thread has been very enlightening to me. And as usual, it seems there is not RIGHT answer. Its always good to get different perspectives and different experiences.
For me, I simply want to start target shooting and eventually get out to 1000 yrds. I'm not a big hunter but I have friends who hunt, so I would not be surprised if I ended up doing that at some point. I live in MN.
I'm going to go with a high end scope. I want to get glass that I will never have to replace. I'll probably spend $1.3 - $1.5k on the scope. For the rifle, I'm set on the .308. I know its not the best for going out to 1000, but it is readily available and less expensive.
I'm still going back and forth around brand and price. But the platform and upgrade stock, barrel, trigger, etc. over time.....or buy the more accurate package up front. We'll see. I'm probably going to buy in 2-3 months, so I have some more time for analysis and searching for a good deal (although I don't seem to see many sales on guns these days, too much demand as it is).
