In a production rifle I'd look at Tikka and Howa, you get a lot of rifle for the money.

I don;t know about the current 700s but the old Sendero was the most accurate out of the box rifle (except one) that I ever shot.

It's splitting hairs IMO. Buy what you like. If you like it you will probably shoot it well.

I'm not a 223 fan at all but I would like to have one of those Rugers in 7.62x39. I would have to change that stock out though. It feels like a plastic toy gun.

My limited reading lead me to looking at heavy barrels. I can certainly be convinced otherwise. Looking for out of the box accuracy in a 308 without busting the wallet.


You can look these up and see the out of the box performance.

I would much rather spend $500-600 on a gun and $1000 on the scope... like I did with this one... than $1000 on the gun with a $500 scope.

Me personally, I like the weight of the heavy barrel plus I want a little meat on it so I can get it threaded for a suppressor.


Been looking at the Ruger American Ranch just for that reason it comes threaded.
While 223 is definitely not my favorite round for deer at these short 100 yard or less shots it works on hogs and deer well.
If I were shooting over 125 yards I would want a little more meat.


Made just for you CB. :)

I will have to check that out next time I go to my sons. He has a Cabelas close to his house. 308 would be first choice 6.5 second.
