howa 308 hogue 26" barrel with 4-16x44 nikon

Howa 308 Axiom 20" with 4-16x44 nikon

Remington 700p 308 26"barrel

629.99 to 950. primarily a range shooter for now, until skills progress. What do you think?

Remington's are nice, Howa are also very nice...
Howa has smoother action than Remingtons.

Up to you. I think you'll be happy with both.
I had a Howa, never had a problem.

If you want to mod, tinker and buy gizmos the remmy is the better choice, but IMO the howa is a bit nicer off the wall

I love the Howa Axiom out of all 3 but as stated if you want to customize it the Remi is the best.

Well want is your intended purpose for the rifle? How far do you plan on shooting with this? Biggest question you have to ask your self is how much can I afford for glass. Dont ask how much I want to spend, but how much I can.

about 500 to 1k for the scope. Right now its gonna be a 200yd range rifle until shooting improves. Then hunting in the future. Ive read reviews today of Nikons/leupold/nightforce pretty much seems they come down to price
