Hey everyone, I've been doing a good amount of research on some .308 hunting rifles, and much of it was actually threads on LRH. I'm currently looking to purchase a bolt action rifle in .308. So far I'm looking at a few different rifles under $500: 1.Weatherby Vanguard S2 2.Savage 11F Hunter 3.Thompson Center Arms Venture 4.Marlin XS7 As well as the Remington SPS 700 Varmint for $570, however, there is a $50 rebate directly from Remington for the SPS Var. To get to the heart of the matter, I'd like something that is a good platform to accurize, and perhaps some day do some long range shooting with. I would like to keep it under $500 for the rifle, as I'm also looking at spending around $350 for a Millett TRS scope, and DNZ 1-piece scope mount. Is it worth spending the extra $20-$50 for the Remington, or will the other options shoot nearly as well for a little less cash? Thank you for your help, it's greatly appreciated.
