Which is most accurate out-of-box?

I'd like to hear your thoughts on a highly accurate out-of-box fine production rifle, with (I won't lie) a little bit of wow factor, chambered in 7mm STW, .300 Win Mag, or .300 RUM. I'd like to stay under $4,500.00. I've been looking at Coopers and Blaser, but am certainly open to other makes.

Would also like to hear your thoughts on suggested calibers / accuracy for long range big game.

Holy Crow! An out-of-box for under $4,500. You should be inundated with responses with that price. Im partial to my TRG-42 but you left the heavy 338s out of the equation.

get a sling-shot, they are way more economical, and you can even find ammo for it... save the dolares for taxes...

Unless you re-load I'd get the win. If you do reload use your savings and buy all three ( I have and use all three). Just tell your gal that you are doing the same with rifles as she does with shoes.

For that money, I would likely have one built to my specifications.

But for out of the box.....maybe McMillan EOL ....See McMillan EOL Outdoorsman Long Range Rifle

Re: Which is most accurate out-of-box?

If you are looking for a tactical type long range rig, have one built. If you want something more classically styled, I am a huge fan of the coopers. You can go totally nuts for $4500 and basically have a one of a kind show rifle with a bunch of embellishments. Or you can get some really nice upgrades, throw some nice glass on, and still hit your budget.

I had one built last year in 280AI, french walnut, custom LOP, fluted bolt. I have no buyers remorse. My first set of load development yielded several .35ish groups (3-shot) and the worst was .64. Not a bad place to start!

I'm jealous of your toy budget!
