All, I appologize as I have made a couple threads already for specific guns I was looking at and I know this is yet another thread but instead of stating the guns I was looking at I would like your opinions on a sub 1000 dollar gun in 30-06 caliber. I will most likely never customize it and again 1000$ is the absolute MAX I want to pay so please dont state "well for just a bit more you can buy this". Not sure how much a trigger job would cost but if not much...that would be the extent of customizing the gun. Accuracy with factory loads is what I am after. Anything at or under 1 moa would be great. I was thinking synthetic and possibly stainless depending on costs, although many say synthetic can suck so I dont know. The reason for synthetic is it will be in the woods hunting and everytime I have scratched my current wood gun...it makes me mad haha. I am open to all suggestions. I have been to the shop and held x-bolts, remington 700s, savages, tikkas and ruger m77. all felt fine but I am not an expert on what it "should" feel like so I really dont know. I am at my wits end and really have no idea what to go after/buy. When you read so much on the internet you can find flaws in almost anything so I would like to leave it to you "experienced" guys to put me on a good path towards a rifle I hopefully wont regret. Thanks again for understanding all my posts/threads on this.
