Marlin 795 can compete with the CZ bolt

At the budget you mentioned, I think a Marlin 795 is the way to go. I have both that and a CZ 455 American. I qualified with them both at Appleseed. I haven't done a detailed accuracy comparison with best ammo for each, but they are in the neighborhood. I think I can get a dime sized 5-shot group at 50 yards with either from prone if they are getting the right ammo. Should get you going until you scrounge up $2k for an Anschutz or something.

I think you could get a 795 with scope, base and rings for what you were budgeted, but the glass would be nothing special. 4x magnification is all you need (probably) out to 50, maybe 100.
