That's how much I have, and I want your opinion.
Savage would be first choice, then use the rest of the 1000 to get a quality barrel/stock and possible trigger if the accutrigger doesnt suit you. Second would be a remington 700 just becasue there is everything in the world for them. Also dont count out a custom action if you plan on blueprinting the rem action the custom doesnt really end up being all that much more expensive.
Is it to be for big game hunting, competition or varmints? For a few hundred more you can get a Cooper, and they are almost a custom from the factory.
There are many good deals in used rifles. Here is a place to check out:
Shooters' Corner - The Worlds Largest Inventory of New and Used Benchrest Equipment
If I couldn't find the good used Cooper I wanted, it would be a Savage.
Another vote for Savage if you are buying new..... Best out of the box accuracy for the money.... As PyroducksX3 said would use the rest of the money for a decent stock....
If buying used there are lots of possibilities depending on what you plan on shooting with it....
+4 Savage. Very accurate. Lots of calibers, I like the new 300 WSM Bear Hunter
An other good option, tc icon, i really like the integrated weaver rail and 1 moa accuracy guaranty.
Another vote for the Savage rifles ...
Too many to mention that are within your price range but the 111 LRH and 116 BH would be my choices for hunting. The 12 LRP is good too!
Good luck! Happy safe hunting/shooting.
A rifle would be another Savage, but really would rather spend it on a Specialty Pistol.
New or used?
What will you be using it for?
What weight is too heavy or too light?
What caliber(s) would you consider?
Do you want it ready to go, or would you add anything to it?
Savage rifles generally do very well as mentioned already. However, I would also seriously consider a used Remington Sendero. More aftermarket parts, more gunsmiths who will work on them, better stock, and a bit more weight if you want to shoot larger calibers or longer range.
I have Savages and a Sendero, and they all perform well.
Remington 700 BDL in 30-06 caliber.
Savage or Kimber
sendero if you are wanting to shoot long range and have to have a factory rig
I like my Savage.
