Re: Bang for your buck

I would consider one of the mil spec remingtons in 308 or 300 win mag. they come from the factory with a heavy barrel with 5r rifling, a nice stock with aluminum bedding block and from what I've heard or seen, atleast the 308 is a tack driver. they go for about a grand. either one would get you out to 600 easily for deer and the win mag would do the job on just about anything in north america.
