Ok here is the deal. I have been wanting a rifle chambered in 6.5x284. This is the caliber I want to play around with and I have several options for this. So I would like to hear what you would do. 1. Savage has the new 111 Long Range Hunter in the 6.5x284. It is in the accustock with a Karsten adjustable comb and adjustable muzzlebrake.Comes with 26inch barrel 1/8 twist. All of the other Savage rifles I have owned in the past have shot very good. I can get this gun for under $800. Do I try this gun and hopefully it is a shooter( my classification for shooter is less than 1/2" MOA out to 800 yards). If the barrel doesn't perform, I can always rebarrel it for another $400 bucks and have a total of around $1150 tied up in gun. 2. Have a custom Pro-Hunter Barrel made by MGM for around $750 with everything I would want on the barrel. I could get it up to 29" and whatever twist I want. Only draw back in my eyes on this is if the barrel doesn't perform the way I want it to, I am stuck with just sending it back and dealing with MGM. 3. Or have rifle put together in this caliber on a Rem 700 action and whatever I want. I would probably end up having close to $1500 off the bat tied up in this route, however I know it would shoot by going this route. So the question of the day is what would you do?
