I would take a look at the Savage Tactical series in 300 WM. The custom shop can built 110 series tactical rifles in various barrel lengths and chambers that are not listed in the link below. You can pick one up for around $750 new.
Savage Arms Model 10FP
This rifle comes standard with 1.5 lbs accutrigger, accustock, oversized tactical bolt and muzzlebrake.(2009 Model) The muzzlebrake and 9 lbs weight should make it a low recoil option even in 300WM.
The custom shop costs are very reasonable. It they quoted me only $157.00 over the cost of the standard tacticle rifle to get a custom chamber 6.5-284 and 26" barrel.
