saiga in 762x39 or 308
lever guns in 357 or 30/30
entry remmy 700 or savage 10?
("quality" excludes any and all century AK's)
6.8 upperkinda cheats since the whole getup would exceed 500$.
cz527 in 7.62x39 (500$?)
ishapores, fr8's and IDF 308 mauser's a bit too 'old' for me

I can't get combat accuracy for 300 yard max at under 500$?

Any Savage bolt gun will do. If you shop around the EE you may beat that 500 dollar limit.

Ican get a savage scout locally.

Do you not own a rifle right now, or, are you just looking for a reason to get another rifle?

Current arsenal has 12g, 5.56, 9mm and 38sp in it. the 5.56 will never ever get shot in training/practice so it's useless to me.
I have this itch to go to 9mm AR's but retain at least some kind of 'down the block' capability.
If I have to , I can sight in a longer range gun at the fudd range and I can shoot the 9mm AR's at my local range.
economics matter here. I happen to have a quantity of 7.62x39 ammo so that helps.

Why won't you train with your AR? I realize some of you are stocking up for the end of the world, but whats the point if you never train with it. That would be your option for 300yds, maybe buy some reloading stuff with the $500.

Another option is a used Rem 700.

It was the most accurate rifle in that caliber I've ever shot.

I think the cz is one of the 308 designed ones not 311?

thanks for the suggestion.

I had one with a QD scope mount.

the straight pull action kinda freaked me out, but the mag fed option was useful.

are extra mags plentiful?

I paid 300$ for the rifle, mount and 300 rounds in '06, I'm guessing its more now?
