a steal of a deal!

so i have the chance to buy a remington 700 in 30-06 that has never been shot to the best of the sellers knowledge.... the seller being my grandma. i am trying to decide if i should pick it up or not, i can get my hands on it for 300 bucks, currently its mounted with a leupold scope 3-9x40. but i also have a ruger m77 tang safety that is in my possesion and i dont think its been shot that much as my grandpa owned it and didnt hunt a whole lot. both are completely factory. i want to be killin paper at about 1k and shootin deer at about 800 ish, what would be my best bet as for the gun. the ruger is a 1984 model and i know for a fact the remington is alot newer, its still in the box!

    Remington 700 w/Leupold is worth 300$ all day long! Would be the easiest to customize and more aftermarket components available! If you don't want it, post her info, someone will take it!

    im sure someone would want to take it! but i think im gonna pick it up and turn it into my long range shooter. its too good of a price to turn away from even if its not my preferred caliber. i know the 30-06 is still capable to shoot long distance but its trajectory isnt as good as some other rounds. all things considered... it will be mine! first new rifle owned and a customizable remington at that!

    Turn it into a 280AI, a 6.5 Sherman, or 6.5-06

    its the price she offered it to me for and thats part of the reason why i want to buy it rather than give it to me, i have 6 hand me down guns already. i dont have much of a need for another gifted gun that i cant modify the way i want. i have a ruger m77 mk2 in 25-06, ruger m77 tang safety 7mm, 30-30 lever action from about the 50s, 22 pump from about the 40s, and a .22 semi auto, then i have a benelli 12 gauge that i got from my dad, as well as a mathews legacy solocam that shoots like a dream. i dont think i need another gifted gun when i barely have room to store the ones i already have.
