Hey, Ive already asked several of you guys your opinions but just thought this would be a fun topic...What rifle and scope combination would you purchase with a $1000 budget, be creative and use your money wisely.

I think I just did this.  I put together a CZ 452 LR in Silhouette with a 3-9 Kahles AH with a TDS recticle and a Harris BRM-S bipod.  Love it...just a blast to shoot.

Ruger 77, your choice of caliber, roughly $549.  Zeiss Conquest $399. Warne rings to replace Ruger factory rings $50.  But if I could I would beg, borrow or steal another $200 and  replace that Ruger with a Remington  model 700.  Bricat

 You're probably right about that, Ted!

 
 And if I keep making wisecracks like that, I doubt that very many of them will like me very much, either!  Mean%20Computer

My shorty Ruger M77 Frontier 300 WSM @ $695 (rings included) + my 3x9 Elite 4200 @ $298!........Not a bad combo for a $1000!!................Comparatively speaking, my Ruger/4200 combo is outstanding on the range and in the field! Far better than Hillary Clinton or any other damned liberal democrat that could ever occupy the White House!!!!.....................

The Feb. `08 issue of "Guns Magazine" on pg. 30 has an article by Dave Anderson entitled "Happy Anniversary Model 77."...................He goes into the history of the M77`s, their previous drawbacks in barrel suppliers, accuracy, trigger pulls and what not!!....He also discusses the design and accuracy improvements that Ruger continually makes year after year, which they have done; most recently with the new trigger!...... The M77`s may not quite yet measure up to the M700`s, but I have no doubt that they will..... The accuracy with my 300 WSM Frontier hunting reloads is now under 1" ......I have yet to reload for my Alaskan 375, but I have no doubts, with some reloading experimentation, that I will get 1" groups or less with that too............Don`t completely count the Rugers out guys! They are improving every year! And along with new innovations, comes trial and error!........................... BTW, no stock splitting with my Alaskan yet!!

Dunagan....................You don`t come from the Bushnell poor rep days of old do you???.......The 4200`s are a totally different ball game! There`s a difference between a Bushnell fan and a 4200 fan! I`m not a Bushnell fan, I`m a 4200 fan!Wink
