There have been some good recomendations on here
that would fit your needs. But I think the best option
you could go with and have a pretty much custom rifle
would be building off an Stevens 200 action. Then going
with an SIII or Vortex viper probaly the best scopes out
there for the price.
Stevens action with comp lug tax and FFL fees
B&C stock pillar bedded
Action blueprinting and fitting
Scope and rings ewg base Burris sig rings
Reloading components (to start)
These are estimates, and my opinion but half MOA
at long rang is is half MOA at long range. Whether its
From a custom or a Stevens properly smithed and trued.
Now if you have the money go custom for many reasons and if not
this set up will get you the results you want and more for the price
range. For target purposes up to a grand it would be hard
to beat a 6.5 for efficiency and low recoil.
