I have a thread about this already so I appologize but I wanted to start a poll on it. I am looking for a no non-sense rifle to shoot out to 500 yards in 300win mag. Budget is ~1000$ plus or minus a bit. This is the furthest i can shoot here in NY so probably will never shoot further but I guess you never know. It does not need to be light weight as I already own a light weight rifle that i trust out to 300 yards for those long walk days in the woods BUT I also may want to avoid an extremely heavy weight rifle ( I know a few of the options I listed are heavy rifles) as I will need to walk a few hundred yards to the field locations I would use this rifle. I think max distance I would need to carry is a quarter mile. I will be shooting from multiple positions: Sitting/standing with shooting sticks, off a stable shooting rail in one particular tree stand, and occasionally prone. I will never be shooting it off hand. I know every company has lemons...but would like to avoid the more lemon prone companies. I will most likely not be customizing this rifle...but I do like the idea the savages can be re-barreled rather easily by yourself and the remingtons have lots of support so those are a plus. thanks guys!
