Re: Best Lightweight Rifle under $2,000?
I am new to the forum, and am learning quite a bit. I have spent most of my life working in the retail sales end of the shooting industry and have seen thousands upon thousands of guns walk through the doors. I know that there are a lot of guys on here getting hyped up about all these custom rifles, and I think it is great. The one thing I have noticed is that no matter what kind of gun it is, or who builds it there are always some guns that shoot, and some that don't. I have seen rifles that cost a couple of grand plus, and still don't shoot. I personaly just picked up an x-bolt in 270wsm, and I love that rifle. I topped it off with a Swarovski Z5 3.5-18x50 with their ballistic turret system and I am set for 800 yds. That gun right out of the box shot a half inch group with remington corelok ammo. It will shoot that group all day long. It is a light enough for me, and it shoots really well. I have tightened the groups up with some handloads, but for the money I love that gun. The new magazines are a huge improvement over the old a-bolt mags, and the rifle just fits me very well. There are a lot of good choices in a rifle, I wish you the best in your decision. Just thought I would add my two cents.
