I am at a crossroad and cannot choose the correct path. I've been researching, holding, dry firing, reading, etc. Beyond ready to purchase. Caliber is 6.5. Leaning towards the PRC, but may end up with the creedmoor due to commonality. In case I decide to sell, the CM will appeal to more people. I reload. Seeking a bolt action, highly accurate rifle with a raised check piece. $2,000 +/- is budget. Here is my dilemma....... Local large sporting goods store has a Bergara Premier Long Range on sale in 6.5 CM for $2,099.99. Love it except for the protruding box magazine. Figure it would dig into my back if I ever shoulder carry. Other than that, it appears to be a wonderful firearm. 1 MOA guarantee. I can purchase a Christensen Mesa Long Range in 6.5 PRC for $1,439.00. 1 MOA guarantee. So, why spend extra on Bergara? Browning X-bolt Max LR in 6.5 CM for $1,100 and a 6.5 PRC for $1,200. No accuracy guarantee. But with an aftermarket trigger, this rifle should be 1 MOA or better and cost similar to the CA MLR. May be 1 MOA out of box. Seems like I may be taking a chance on quality. Reviews across the board. So, I am leery. I recently followed a thread asking X-bolt or Tikka. A lot of Tikka lovers replied. Tikka rifles are fairly inexpensive. People love them. Not sure I do. But if truly accurate, I can learn to. My dilemma lies with the $1,000 +/- difference between these rifles (and others not mentioned e.g. Rem 700) which could/should all shoot 1 MOA or less provided I do my part. Naturally, I am seeking bugholes while on bags at the range. This drives my mind back the Bergara or the Christensen as they guarantee accuracy out of the box. I've missed a couple wonderful opportunities in the LRH classifieds for a Seekins and others where targets are shown and loads will be shared. However, I would enjoy my own load development. At some point, I will find a gunsmith and build something in the .30 cal family. What should I do?
