I'm brand new to the world of bolt action and have limited experience hunting anything outside of a blind. I am in the market for a new gun capable of hunting deer and elk. Fairly positive I'm gonna get a 700, the last thing is which model and caliber. At some point, I do want the ability to put a suppressor on there, and I'm pretty sure the SPS TAC AAC is the only one that comes with a threaded barrel. Let's say I went with another model, is that something that could be easily done by a smith for less than $300? i honestly have no idea. The other thing, is if I did go with the SPS TAC AAC, would you guys recommend i get the barrel floated? The biggest thing I'm unsure of is the caliber. As stated above, I want to be able to take down elk and deer from 600. Any advice is appreciated. Mods, I have posed the same question in the how to hunt thread. if i'm not supposed to post 2 threads, please let me know.
