trying to get into long range shooting with something that wont break the bank

ok the cal. is a 308 that will be used mainly for target shooting and some whitetails. want some thing thats very accurate and something a smith wouldnt have trouble working. would yall say it would be better off to start with a rem 700 varminter ss of course and just start shooting then have it customized later on or go with like a sako trg or somethin from r bros? really dont know anything bout the sako personaly i know a few ppl that say they are really nice and really accurate out of the box thats bout it tho. what are your thoughts?

Going to throw the Savage / Stevens line out there. Easy to work on and shoot great

Accurate out of the box savage, what a joke, I've yet to run across an inaccurate one! As for the 308 the model 10FCP-HS comes to mind first then the 12VLP. Plus you won't have to swap out that crappy remington trigger for a Jewell.

This is similar to my interest, I have been thinking of a 700 varmint in .338, SS barrel, and changing the stock, how does the Savage compare pricewise to this?

This one has got to be my main hunting and shooter for the next year.

Re: trying to get into long range shooting with something that wont break the bank

don't leave out the Remington 5R Milspec.they shoot right out of the box really well with factory match ammo.and the trigger really isn't that bad.its just the set screw you use to adjust the trigger can some what get in the way.other than that its OK.but tradeing out the trigger really isn't that bad if you choose too.

even the Remington SPS tac. is a really good rifel to get.many shooters are really getting great accuracy with them.and thats with a 20" barrel.but its your choice not ours.we are just offering opinions.RIGHT
