We need to know your friend's definition of "accurate."

We need to know how picky your friend is.

We need to know how much he is willing to pay.

    Remington 700 ADL or BDL in .270 or 30/06.

    Not out of the box compared to a Tikka or Savage. If you have a smith then a remington action may be the most universal platform, but not the most accurate out of the box.

    If he likes Tikka, then I doubt anything will be better enough at lesser price to bother too much pondering.

    Savage is great as well, i have one, but I like the looks of Tikka better...accuracy very good n both.

    I've had a few Remington 700's .270's that would shoot 1/2" or better right out of the box. A friend of mine had one that would hover around 1/4". This wasn't recently so I don't know what they are putting out now but I've seen quite a few shoot really well.

    The T3 will do him fine. It wouldn't be my choice but it will definitely get the job done at 300 + yards.

    I dislike the shortcuts that Tikka/Sako took with the T3 but understand that it's all about staying at a certain price point. Personally I would not go with a .27 cal since higher BC bullet selection is limited.

    Recommend at least a 10x optic for 300+ yards.
