Does the $1000 include optics?

Most accuracy for the money would be Tikka. The Weatherby Vanguard is a nice rifle, but doesn't make your weight limit. I'm a big fan of the Winchester EW, but I'm not sure street price will be under $1000. It'll be close. They still don't show it available in 6.5 Creedmoor on their website, but announced at Shot Show that it would be. The Winchester Featherweight should be in the $800 range and meets all of your criteria.

I think you'll like the Creedmoor. I have several "nice" rifles, but wanted to test the 6.5 Creedmoor waters with a less expensive rifle. I picked up one of the Ruger Predators for $350 and have come to like the round a lot. My Ruger is as accurate as anything, but I think you want a "nicer" rifle. I may get something a little nicer later and my personal pick would be the Tikka in that cartridge.
