Wanted to Buy. Long Range Rifle!

My son was with me last week in Kansas hunting white tail deer. He watched one shot and is hooked.

We are looking for a reasonably priced rifle in the 6.5 up to .30 caliber. Something that is easy to shoot and easy on brass. This will be his first long range rifle and he has a limited budget.

Please let us know if you have one that shoots well you will part with.

Update: a bit more info as we are zeroing in:

1: Tactical stock, like an A-5 but does not have to be a McMillian

2: Heavy 26" or longer barrel length and a brake would be nice

3: Need to be able to do 1000 yards

4: Leaning toward a 300 Win. Might consider something a bit smaller if it will go the distance.



Thanks!

Jeff

there is a tikka .308 for sale in on this forum. Although I don't own the exact model, I've shot several tikkas (2 of my own, 2 from a buddy) and they all shoot lights out.

I'd say it fits the bill, based on your criteria.

easy to shoot - CHECK

easy on brass - CHECK

6.5-300 caliber - CHECK

limited budget - CHECK

shoots well - CHECK

Go for it....

What length and what twist in the barrel? Can you send pics? Also what kind of barrel life could one expect from a 6.5x284 ?

Thanks!

Re: Wanted to Buy. Long Range Rifle!

I have a brand new in the box remington 700 adl in 7mm rem. mag with 26 inch barrel-no sights... not a custom, but with proper bedding should shoot great.

Tony.
