View Full Version : New shooter

03-01-2010, 5:22 PM
So this is my first post.. I haven't really figured out the site yet. I just got a new AR-15 a few days ago. I am also interested in a nice but cheap bolt action rifle and scope to start getting into longer range stuff. Any ideas?

Hi there! Posting more or less exactly how much you want to spend would help us out. Also, do you plan to hunt with said rifle, how far do you plan on shooting, and do you/will you be reloading?

No more than $1000. No not hunting but mostly target stuff. I don't plan on shooting much farther than 500 yards. Moslty for my own enjoyment. I haven't gotten into reloading but I have been interested in learning how soon

Savage 10 and Remington 700 are good choices. The Savage will be a little cheaper and the Remington will have more aftermarket accessories available. I've heard that Tikkas are good bang for the buck rifles as well.
AR-15 Barrels has a great sticky in the Precision Rifles forum.
