I'm going to guess the $1000 is just for the rifle. Tikka T3x and Kimber 84M Hunter in synthetic stock rifle, a Winchester M70 FWT for a wood stocked rifle. The Tikka and Kimber will come in well under 7 lbs with optics. The Winchester will come in about 7.5-8 lbs depending on optics chosen, and they brought back the Stainless version for 2018 as well!

I'd also recommend the Tikka T3x Hunter in a 6.5X55 Swede for a wood stocked rifle if you would consider it. Tikka doesn't list the 6.5 Creedmoor in that configuration, but there is really no real world difference for hunting between the two cartridges. The main issue will be ammunition availability, with the Swede you'll have to reload or get most of your ammunition online or at gun shops that carry it.
