Your cheapest and most expensive 100 yd sub-moa gun

All costs combined

Gun
rings
base
scope
ammunition
gunsmith work
gun or caliber specific reloading supplies
stocks
bipods

anything that is just used for said gun. Just thought i should post this up and see what the low end and high end are for shooting nicely. Sub-MOA means .99999999" or better at 100 yards. Retail or store prices please. "I got a deal"s and hand-me-downs don't apply. Post up your combo and how it shoots.

Re: Your cheapest and most expensive 100 yd sub-moa gun

Sako Tikka T3 300wsm, Leupald bases, Burris Rings w/ inserts, Nikon Monarch scope, Harris bi-pod, Limbsaver recoil pad.
$690 out the door for the rifle, scope is well used but I paid @ 450 for in new about 8 years ago, bases and rings cost around $60, limbsaver $35, and the bipod again is 15 years old but @ $75. I had to do a fair amount of load development but it shoots a solid .75 MOA and most groups are in the .5 moa range with my current load of H 4350, and 180 nosler AB's. No smith work yet, and I spend about $40 on a set of redding dies. I am very satisfied with Tikka. Oh ya... $30 sling ;)

With that said, I don't have lots of rifles, I have a Savage 12 FV that isn't a sub MOA rifle, and I have a Rem 700 BDL 30-06 that was more expensive but shot .75 moa in it's day. Actually the remington was cheaper, but that was back in '94 so today's cost would make it more.

Savage model 12 fv in .223 best bang for the buck out there, $550 should get you one about anywhere.
Burris signature rings, $40
Leupold bases, $40
Simmons Whitetail Classic 6.5-20x50, $100
Just load up 55grain Hornady balistic tips and 25 grains of Varget and you can count on sub moa accuracy.

I was hoping to see some rimfires in the cheap side.

Re: Your cheapest and most expensive 100 yd sub-moa gun

Remington 788 .243 $225. Bushnell Sportview 3-9 scope $25. Hornady 87 gr BTHP $12. Winchester 748 $15. Sub half inch groups at 100 yds PRICELESS! Of course, I just traded it for a lefty 788, hope it shoots as good.

Remington 700 LSS $550. Pillar bedding & lapping $150. Shilen match grade stainless fluted #5 taper barrel in 30-06AI $380. Leupold Vari-x II 4-12 $325. Leupold rings & bases $40. Sub MOA groups. The coolest looking rifle I have ever seen, also PRICELESS!
