Hello, I've been doing a little research, and I'm trying to find a rifle that would be good for hunting whitetail deer, but also for target shooting at the range outside of hunting season. Here are a few details of what I'm looking for: 1) I will reload my own ammo. 2) I want something chambered in .308 for target shooting at 300+ yds. 3) A composite stock for durability in the field. 4) I don't want to pay a retarded amount for an accuracy international type of rig. I was thinking anywhere from $1000 to $1800. 5) Based on what I've seen so far, I'm considering both the Weatherby Accumark, or a Remington 700. 6) I really like the look of the stainless fluted barrels and the spiderweb pattern composite stock on the Weatherby. 7) I also like that the bolt lift on the Weatherby is only 54 degrees. 8) I don't want something that feels like a toy gun (hollow plastic type cheap stock feeling). I know this is a lot to ask for all in one rifle, but any suggestions? If you suggest a Remington, which model would best suit my purposes in your opinion? Any experience with either of these rifles?
