Looking for suggestions for a 308 bolt rifle as a suppressor host that has good accuracy, decent trigger, threaded barrel and won't break the bank.
Thanks, Road Dawg

Tikka ctr

Remington 5r 20" threaded

And to save even more the SPS tactical will shoot but " finish" lacks

I've never owned a bolt gun so this is new to me. The reveiws on the ruger predator are looking good right now. Does anybody have
experience with it?

Savage does a good job at filling those needs and is cheaper than the Remington & Tikka. Just depends on what your budget is.

I think a Mossberg mvp patrol would fit the bill.

I had a Ruger American Predator and a Ruger American. Both were fine for the purpose and shot as good as I needed.

What about the Ruger Precision Rifle? They're running right at $1k.

Based on what you described, i'd go Savage because...
A) remington's and tikka's are noticeably more expensive, especially if one figures the price for an aftermarket trigger for the 700 (which i think is a must). And
B) ruger and savage is about the same but I have personally owned a few Savages.

That said I am a bit of a cheap arse and don't require razor's edge accuracy as my own shooting skills aren't that precise.

I have a Ruger American in 7mm-08 and it shoots extremely well. I have been eyeing the Predator in .308, which has been running around $389 lately. Might do dome swapping! The Savage Hog Hunter also catches my eye but I'm not a Savage guy.

Ruger, Mossberg, TC Venture or Savage are the ones that come to mind fotting the OP criteria. My pick of those would be the TC

I bought a marlin xs7 from cdnn sports for $249+ shipping+ tax= $286. Adjustable trigger, blued barrel, synthetic stock. Put a Simmons 8 point scope on it $350 total. Yes I'm cheap but it shoots great.

Do you want to stick to factory threaded barrels? If so, I agree that ruger american predator and savage hog hunter are both good, cheap options.
