    I'll be honest, I still really like the Bergara despite possibly firing pin issues. Wondering if I do just take my chances with it and if it goes wrong just get ready for a bolt fix.

    Frankly, that's what I would do ... you'll be much happier with your original plan.

    Yes, I think I am still leaning towards my original plan. I like the rifle and am really not having such like toward many other rifles. I think I'll stick with Bergara and see how it acts.

    I really like to recommend an X-BOLT for factory long range shooting, especially with the new fast twist barrels. But, they are out of your budget by about $400.

    You're best bet on that budget is a 700 long range, and shoot a 168 vld or162 eld-m

    Seems like a good move. The fix isn’t super expensive, just a pain if you have to deal with it.

    I would look into a Browning X-Bolt to Ruger M77, I have both and they are accurate and comfortable to shoot.

    For your price, consider the Winchester new Model 70 along with the others.
