Quote from: Mustang on May 20, 2023, 03:00:16 PMIsnt there something in the classified for round this price and caliber? Sure I saw something the other day or week.
Quote from: CTSixshot on May 20, 2023, 03:03:14 PMI think there's a used 7mm Rem Mag at M&B Sports, but let me check the price. (Warren sends out a monthly inventory sheet, if you contact him). Forget it, over $1000.You will probably have to seek out a used Ruger or Savage, one of their basic models, but I'd think anything in a magnum caliber will be outside your price range..270 Winchester seems so unloved in New England, I suspect that would be your best bet. Walmart stocks .270 Winchester and it won't break the bank like the more obscure belted magnums and similar.
Quote from: CTSixshot on May 20, 2023, 04:08:18 PMCheck your PMs. You might find a surplus Central/South American Mauser in 7mm, 7.65mm, .30-06, etc. somehere near that price range, but today it will be tough. There isn't really anything wrong with the 7x57mm (even the 6.5mm), 8x57mm or most .30 calibers (308 and .30-06), but they just don't have that "new car smell" like 6.5 CM, .338 LM or other current favorites.
Quote from: SCT1 on May 20, 2023, 04:10:56 PMThank you! How are they in terms of accuracy? I'd love something I could hunt with out to 500 yards or so once I'm reliably able to hit that far. I'd seem some surplus but was under the impression they weren't that accurate. Thanks again!
Quote from: joelcramer on May 20, 2023, 05:48:05 PMI do not know what you consider long range. But a 308 is good for 900 yards. You should be able to find something in that price range. Adding optics might blow the budget.
