Ruger American Rifle in 270 and Nikon Pro Staff or Vortex croosfire 2 for right around $600
308 not bad either . I have the american in 308 and it is very accurate . I have to say the stock is a little cheap feeling . It does not suck but I could have been made better .
Savage trophy hunter combo for $500 looks pretty good . It comes with the accu-trigger and you can get it in many cals 223 , 308 , 30-06 to name a few It come with the nikon pro staff scope as well .I have 2 rifles made by Savage . They make a good rifle .
