Help with .223 choice

Im new to this forum and mainly joined to ask a few question... I am looking to purchase a .223 bolt action. Im trying not to spend over 450.00 and would like to find a rifle that is dependable and accurate. I've seen the savage, stevens model 200 and i've been told that would make a good rifle. please give me any suggestoins and links to help me out. thanks

    I wouldn't pass up a Howa 1500 or a Weatherby Vanguard. They are both Howa's and shoot very well.

    FWIW save up 500 more and buy you a 5R in a 223.then you can have both worlds shooting 50gn-77gn bullets.

    I have one and love it.but hey this is just my opinion.the first two replys are just as good.

    I know that you want to keep below the 450 mark but in my opinion one of the best factory .223's is a remington VS FS 2. They are great shooting guns and I don't think it can be beat out of the box.
