Re: looking to build a gun

SInce I have done this a number of times from Caddy to volkswagen bettle I will say that Savage has dominated my thinking the past several years.

Single shot Benchrest action: $435. including match Accutrigger- definitely not the same as the hunter trigger.
$ 300.-$450. barrel of your choice already chambered threaded,crowned and ready for installation.

You can elliminated the gunsmith here if you wish as pretty much anyone can install their own barrel on a go gauge and tighten the barrel nut down.

If not then pay a good smith $75. to do it for you.

Stock of your choice and there are lots. $250.- $300.

I just purchased a one holer 300 Mag complete rifle made by Savage/ Stevens: Savage has the Accutrigger, Stevens has the redefined Savage non-accutrigger which breaks at 3 pounds for $274. SOld the barrel for $75. Trued the action. SO now I have a true solid action for $200. to put any barrel I wish on . gunbroker.com is where I purchased it brand new several months ago.

Just another option.

    Here is a link to an article from one of the writers on this website.

    - Long Range Hunting Rifle On A Budget

    Your $1,000 limit is probably dueable with a savage. Used savages with the accutrigger go for around $300-350 dollars, a Shilen Match grade barrel is approx $250, I just saw a bushnell 4200 elite 4-16 for $299 at Sporstsmans Warehouse. The link below sells the shilen barrel ready to drop in including target crown. You can also get up to a 28 inch barrel for an additional $20.

    That only leaves around $150 for a stock so your choices there are quite limited.
