Im looking for a target rilfe in .223 or .308. I was lokking at spending around 700 800 on just the rifle. I was looking at the Remington Model 700P. What would you guys suggest. And what would be a good sight for around 200 300. Thanks
The questions you are asking are so open ended you are probably going to get a huge number of differing opinions. For 700-800 you can get a Rem 700, M70 (only get the stealth II), or a Savage. All of those rifles are decent out of the box and a good foundation to build on.
As far as glass goes you get what you pay for. For 200-300 you are going to get crappy glass with the exception of the Tasco Super Sniper. This scope performs well beyond it's price and is a great investment. You will see that scope on very expensive rifles.
Go with a one piece base and some decent rings and practice, practice, practice. And then when you are done, practice some more.
Great place to start.
The 700P is an excellent rifle. You might also want to look at the 700 Sendero or the 700 Varmint if you want a few more options on chamberings. You can get custom guns that are more accurate, but any of the above rifles will usually outshoot most shooters right out of the box. With minimal work, they are capable of keeping up with about anything out there.
