    Do you already own other rifles?

    Or, will this be your first and only?

    Then, I would look for a good deal on a 300 Win Mag or 300 WSM.

    There are lots of good rifle and scope choices with a huge price range.

    Moderate price:
    Remington Sendero, Winchester Coyote, Savage Long Range Hunter
    Nikon, Bushnell, Vortex

    High price:
    Blaser, Cooper, Gunwerks
    Leupold, Nightforce, Schmidt-Bender

    What's your budget?

    The budget would be around $2000 for the rifle and scope
