Welcome to LRH and your first post!
First of all, you will read many opinions, as there are many ways to go
I would go with a 260 Remington or 6.5-284 (6mmBR as well).
The Savage rifles for the money and what you get is pretty good.
A 6.5-284 would be my top choice/Lapua brass (130-140 grain VLD's/ Fed match primers & H-4350 or H-4831sc).
A 260 would give you a longer throat life and still give you the same performance i am getting with my 6.5-284's (specialty handguns).
Custom route: I won't even start-so many good directions
Shawn Carlock and Darrel Holland both have schools fairly close to you.
Either would provide you with great instruction and a great time.
