$200 used Stevens/Savage action
Stockys Stocky Bobby Hart LR special $300 or a lesser model
Prechambered or used barrel from the forums or vendors at www.savageshooters.com
for $300 or less.
used 300 win mag heavy sporter barrel there now for $120, several used custom built guns for under $1k or right at .
Might be very easy to find complete used rifle for decent price on that site.
EGW 20-30 MOA base $60
TPS Rings $60
Believe it or not, the Konus M30 6.5x25 MIL/MIL scope new for $320 used $250
IF only for 500, then 308 IF for 1k, then 300 Win Mag. 398 is 38-40 MOA at 1k while the Win mag is 27-28 MOA, 6.5 creedmore is 27-28 MOA at 1 k also.
IF you reload buy a 6.5 Creedmore barrel. Much cheaper to shoot than the 308, much flatter and available for the savage.
