Remington Sendero SF II 7mm Rem Mag would be close to that price range, and would be a tack-driver.

    I would suggest a Tikka T3 lite stainless. It's only 750 bones but shoots and feels like something three times as much. Mine is in a 270 WSM which a great cartridge. Iv put 3 shots through one hole at 150 yards and killed several deer with it. My second suggestion would be a browning a-bolt eclipse 1000 a sweet gun and shoots great. Well that's my 2 cents good luck with your decision and happy birthday!

    Mine is usually a nobody even notices kinda thing unless I drop a hint, which makes me feel like a conceited POS. I guess I'm so vanilla and quiet and keep to myself that nobody (including my closest friends) either notices, or cares. Of course, most of my friends are either A) drama or B) too self-absorbed in their own BS to even notice anything about anyone around them.

    I'm only 27, but getting older sucks... Everyone seems to stop giving a crap about you after you turn 21. LOL

    My mom will usually get me a new pair of Carharrt pants or something. $10 from the grandparents....WooHoo! I can go see a movie..........By myself.

    So I usually just start saving up a couple months ahead of time, and buy myself a present I have been wanting. The best present is the one you like and never want to return. And about the only way to do that for me is to go buy it myself.
