you might wish to check out the SAVAGE, I think there is a .260 REM..ask some of the guys at the rang about the SAVAGE, its ugly, but this in my opinion, its the most accurate out of the box rifle dollar for dollar. Just dont get a junk scope I have a BURRIS, its ok but there are better. Will you be using this rifle for Deer, or Varmints. The .260 is showing its potential as a real good round for both out the 500 pluss yards. I saw it on a deer, shot at 330 yards, it dropped in its tracks so fast it blew my mind.
