    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!

    I would look at three:

    1. Savage

    2. Remington 700

    3. Tikka T3
