Hey,

Have you considered .25-06? It may be worth looking into. Remington has a model 700 BDL chambered for that. Their MSRP price is $985.

You may also want to check out the Savage 111 LRH. They run $750 to $850 and come in calibers like the 7mm Mag, 6.5x284 Norma, both excellent calibers. 25-06 is also available. These rifles will shoot sub MOA out of the box, some coming in at .5 MOA. They have the accu-stock, accu-trigger and Karsten cheekpiece. Just add a $1,100 to $1,200 scope to stay within budget and shoot.

Also noteworthy is that they have muzzle breaks. You may want to restock it though.
