Well I want another rifle that is...
I am working on rounding out my collection, at this point. Eventually it will be to have 10+ of every style and kind of gun However at this point I am interested in a rifle that need not be high capacity but can be used to reach out and touch something should the need ever arise. I am looking for suggestions and your rationale.
The things I want: something I could mount a scope on. Must hold multiple rounds, I know bolt actions don't have a lot of capacity, and that is ok, just no single rounders. I'm stating my budget as $1000 or less. That is for the rifle only. I can justify that price to Mrs BigJon and then justify spending just as much or more on a scope and any other accessories.
Another question is what round do I want it chambered for? I believe I want something akin to either a remington 700 style bolt action, or an M1a. My concern is ammo performance. What's your vote and why and please let me know why. .30-06, 7mm mag, .308? I would like to be able to hit an object at 600+ yds, IF I do my part.
Thanks for your input and opinions.
