Here are a couple of choices for you to look at. I bought my first Rem LH 700 back in 1979 in 7mm mag and it was a great gun. I like more gun though, so it is long gone. Killed lots of deer with the 7mm and some wild hogs and a few bears. I liked the 160 gr partition back then.

Re: Left Handed Long Range Setup

Left here too

Life's too short to shoot factory tubes! I've had a few that really shoot but never owned one that cleaned well. And I've had factory tubes that couldn't shoot moa. I'd say 70/30. Never had a barrel from krieger Bartlien brux that didn't shoot moa and cleaned well too.

So my advice is the 700. I've bought doner rifles for 300-400. Barrel around 325. True and screw seems to be all over the map. Do some research here. Good smiths on here. So for around 1k you can have a rifle that shoots better than you can. Down the line you can upgrade trigger. Stock. Save a bit on the front end. Factory sticks seem to be 500-1000 anyway
