Help me decide Weatherby/Savage?
Hello all. Just wanted some advice on my next gun. First off, I have never done long range shooting or hunting, but have been shooting and hunting my entire life and would really like to get into the sport.
I am looking for a very accurate out-of-the box rifle capable of less than MOA accuracy. If money were no object, then I would just buy a custom gun, but not really wanting to pay the hefty price for 0.5MOA precision, I would like to just get the best bang for my buck for my first long range gun. I plan on putting a Nightforce NXS 8-32 on whatever I buy. I am at least certain about that. I have read about the Weatherby Vanguard sub MOA on their website as well as the Savage Model 111 Hunter series FCNS. The Weatherby guarantees the accuracy, MSRP is $1000, but is made in Japan. The Savage doesn't guarantee accuracy, is about $350 cheaper, and is made in the US. I am still contemplating caliber, but most likely will get either 300 Win. Mag, or 7mm Mag.
I would really appreciate any insight that anyone could give me. I would also be open to suggestions to brands other than the two guns mentioned above. Thanks to all for your help.
