    Im new to this forum and mainly joined to ask a few question... I am looking to purchase a .223 bolt action. Im trying not to spend over 450.00 and would like to find a rifle that is dependable and accurate. I've seen the savage, stevens model 200 and i've been told that would make a good rifle. please give me any suggestoins and links to help me out. thanks

    I wouldn't pass up a Howa 1500 or a Weatherby Vanguard. They are both Howa's and shoot very well.

    not sure of the price but look at the CZ line...they may be out of your price range though

    FWIW save up 500 more and buy you a 5R in a 223.then you can have both worlds shooting 50gn-77gn bullets.

    I have one and love it.but hey this is just my opinion.the first two replys are just as good.

    I know that you want to keep below the 450 mark but in my opinion one of the best factory .223's is a remington VS FS 2. They are great shooting guns and I don't think it can be beat out of the box.
