rifle selection - bang for buck

Hey Zak, I shoot a .308 winchester. The only rifle I have at this point is a semi-auto Merkel SR1. It is a great bush gun with an acog scope but I am looking to get my first bolt action and start more long range hunts and competition shooting.

Something under $1100 would be ideal and i'm looking for some feedback on the best quality rifles for the price.

Can anyone help me out? I have been looking at

Weatherby Vanguard TR (sub-moa) $1000

the new weatherby vanguard s2 (sub-moa) msrp $600

tikka t3 series

Remington 700

if anybody has any other recommendations I am more than happy to hear them!
