OK........ sorry that I may has used "sniper" in the wrong way but I couldnt think of any other names.


OK lets get to it. I want .308 for sure, with a built on rail for scope. I dont know much about long distance shooting but I am feeling the need to let out the distance between me and the target.

I have a Wilson bi-pod and thats it, dont even know about scopes because I usually see the price and look somewhere else (I can build another AR for the price of a powerful scope).

I want to get in a possible "starter" bolt action .308, and thats all I have to say because I dont know anything else.

Can't go wrong with a Remington 700, lots of varieties and accessories, not to mention 'smiths that can do wonders to make an accurate rifle even better

You just posted in the wrong forum, no one here will move a post because they did not like the word you used to descibe a firearm.

Rem 700. I don't know if they still make the VS (varmint synthetic), but it is identical to the police model except for the stock, and it doesn't cost as much.

For value - can't go wrong with a Savage LE series. You can get one with the McMillan stock for close to what a new PSS is. If you are looking to do a lot building the 700 might be better - more options are available to you.

If you don't care about money then you could always go with a GAP,AI, or TRG.

It depends on how big of a bite you want to take.

Remington 700 PSS Milspec. It uses the barrel from the M24 SWS (though I think the profile is a little lighter). You can add a badger ordnance milspec rail after buying the rifle.

Remmington 700 PSS.

Link Posted: 9/1/2005 12:36:34 PM EDT
FN PBR or SPR. The SPR is a little more money than the PSS but is 10 times the rifle. I would put it up against custom 700's that cost $3500-$4000. Everything is MIL -SPEC and hand fitted. The hammer forged hard chrome plated barrels will go 20,000 rounds and still shoot under 1 MOA.

The PBR has many improvements over the PSS. DBM, steel triggerguard, picatinny rail with 8-40 screws, three position safety, target crown. Shoots .5 MOA consistantly.
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 12:41:46 PM EDT
FN SPR or a Remington 700. The 700 is THE weapon to have for distance shooting, but the SPR is a better weapon from the box. So, the 700 can be made into a better weapon, but that takes additional money. YMMV.

Just make sure to get it in .308.

I am going to be making a big step and purchasing my first real precision rifle soon, so I have been readin A LOT on the subject.

I have a Ruger M77VT in .308 topped with a Tasco Super Sniper scope. If I do my part the rifle will consistently shot 3/4" or less at 100yds.


Everyone who wishes please feel free to bash both ruger and tasco now.....

OK, me first!

I had a Ruger M77MkII. Not a BAD rifle, but I wasn't all that impressed. I prefer a Winchester if I want controlled round feed and a Remington otherwise. The Ruger is a great sporting rifle, but there's not much of an aftermarket for it.

Oh yeah, Tasco sucks. The Super Snipers suck less though, because Tasco subbed them out instead of screwing them up by building them in house. Or so I am told.

Remington PSS is the way to go.
Link Posted: 9/2/2005 12:50:48 PM EDT
The Remington 700 PSS is a bargain. I have owned two, one in 223 and one in 308. They were both winners. I still have the 223, but now have a McMillan 308. Best. Watch-Six

Not the M77MkII but rather the M77vt, big difference....


Oh yeah, Tasco sucks. The Super Snipers suck less though, because Tasco subbed them out instead of screwing them up by building them in house. Or so I am told.


From my understanding the super sniper is a tasco in name only, not much of a relation to tasco except in a few years passed.
But not to worry, I am used to being having others not quite agree with me.

Tasco subs everything out. They just happened to sub this one out to someone good.

I just got a Savage .308 10FP-LE2A with the Choate stock for $540 brand new. I am getting a scope in the mail yet along with the ammo. Can't wait to sight it in. I love the accu-trigger and the stock. It is a beautiful gun overall and I hope it is a one holer from what I have heard from other people.
Hopefully I can borrow a digital camera and get some pictures of it for you. Its definetly a good buy and for what you could buy a Remington 700 for you could get one of these and start to pay for a decent scope for the same money.
My wife says my arsenal is now complete, with a
-20g Winchester shotgun,
-12g Remington slug gun with pistol grip stock and red dot sight,
-Olympic Arms M4 with all the so called tactical goodies with a SS barrel, accurate as heck for a
tactical rifle, gives heck to coyotes, fox and prairie dogs.
-1911 Springfield Armory .45 Mil-spec which I upgraded a lot,
-and my latest addition the: SAVAGE 10FP-LE2A .308, accutrigger and choate stock.

Now I have a gun for all scenarios! But my collection is never done (don't tell the wife though)
Link Posted: 9/5/2005 6:05:39 AM EDT


Mine. It started as a VSS and was constantly tinkered up. I really like the AICS stock.

If you are so inclined, perhaps give one of these a whirl.

Link Posted: 9/9/2005 6:11:24 PM EDT
If you don't mind the weight and the 26" barrel, a Rem 700 VS can be a tack driver with the right optics and ammo. I have shot .3 MOA at 200 yards with a good base, Leupy Mk4 rings and a SA 4-14x56 scope.

What donovan007007 said. Thats the one I have been shooting with out to 1,000 yds. Mine isn't the folding stock. I have a Night Force NSK 5.5-22x56 Mil Dot, with a 20 MOA base.
Been shooting in F-Class either with 175gr SMK's and I just tried 190gr SMK's

Here is mine


OR you could get one of these AR30-338 Lapua with a NF-NSX-5.5-22x56 NPR2 rectle.
I shot this one out to 1960 yds couple months ago. I need to get a 20 MOA base for it and use 300gr SMK's to be accurate past the 1000 mark.



NOW...If you are on a budget this one is good to get you to 1000yds. Savage 12vvs with a Super Sniper Scope. I have made it out to 1000yds with it. I used 175 gr SMK's.



You can use the top or the bottom in F-Class but not the AR30.

By the way AILapua very nice

very very nice. I want to build a AI in 338 lapua, but am afraid of the recoil.

I shot a FN in 338 and I thought I was shooting a 50cal. I had to put my neck brace on after that for a week....
