Buddy looking to buy, big game rifle....
« on: October 22, 2020, 12:23:39 PM »
Throwing this out there for a friend.

Looking for good shooting rifle. Caliber not a major factor,  think deer, elk, bear. With scope is a big plus, with a break is nice. All weather or stainless a plus. He is not brand specific and is an average shooter. Sum moa not required but reliable and consistent is of course. We can load for it but factory ammo dialed in a plus. Located in Lake Stevens,  local is preferred.

Budget is between 1k and 1500.

Thanks

I built my Savage 26 nosler for less then $1500. If he builds and goes with a 26 or 28 nosler I have go gauges he can borrow.

Browning Hells Canyon Speed 6.5 Creedmoor factory brake
Leupold VX-5HD 3-15 windplex reticle
CDS Dial set @200 zero banging steel at 600
60 or so hand loads of 143gr ELD-X @ 2750fps H4350 powder
Sub .5" groups
Less than 150 rounds down the tube

Extremely low recoil

$1650

Rifle is $1049
Scope is $949
Good luck finding ammo

Oh and Leupold Alumina flip scope covers that cost $100

And my guy will continue to make the ammo and mail it to you in a week for better than store prices with no out of stock issues.

You can shoot it at my place out to 200 if you want.

He does not.

Short long ok.

We load, he does not so it would be easy for us to load for it.

I have a savage 10T I might decide to part with. .308 win caliber. Thing is heavy though with the heavy barrel and accustock.  It's ~ 9.5lbs bare rifle.

Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

Take a look at that SAKO Finnbear in 7MM that wrchinook has posted in this category.
I have one and that rifle is the ticket.
they shoot like a dream and are as accurate as anything on the market.
Plus it has class.

Saw that one, very nice. He has his sights, pun intended, on an offer from a member here. He's working on the home front for final approval.  Thanks for the suggestion though!
