Iíve got a Ridgeline in 6.5 prc.  It shoots very well with factory ammo.  Lot of rifle for the $$.

My 300 now is my favorite rifle for long range hunting.  It is stupid accurate and light enought that it is a pleasure to pack around.  I may end up with another ridgeline if you keep talking like that.  LOLOLOL

Iíve got an Rbros 28 Nosler and a Cooper Montana Varminter in 204.  Every option that you have mentioned is a quality option.

I'd also look at the fierce brand rifles from Canada. Very nice and excellent shooters

I've actually done quite a bit of research on fierce as well.  I can't really find anything bad about them.  The guarenteed 1/2 MOA rifles are close to 4K which (carbon barrel) and 3.5K for steel, in the set up i'm looking at.  The only reason I stopped considering them was the cost.  I figured if I was going to pay that much I would go with the cooper, which has a ton of people who love them.

I have a Cooper Excalibur in 6.5x284 that is an absolute tack driver out to 1200 yrds with handloads.

Iíve got a Fierce Fury in 300rum and have it now shooting .75Ē at 200yds. I got mine on sale for $1600. A lot of fun for the money.

I was just looking at some Fierce rifles in Sportsman's Warehouse last week, they do feel like a pretty nice gun and the cost is pretty reasonable, the only thing bad I've heard is delivery time on special order guns, but that's not a problem if you are buying an in stock gun. I haven't heard much about Cooper rifles but I have heard nothing but good regarding Rbros rifles.

The Fierce do handle very nice, I really like their action. I was comparing them side by side with Christensen arms and to me they felt a lot better. It sounds like they have had  some QC issues here and there but I donít read as much about it now as I did a few years ago. Iíve been very tempted to pick one up lately

I looked at the fierce, christiansen, weatherby, kimber, and some tikas all at the same time, the fierce was one of the best if not the best feeling.
