You at least have to give a look at the Tikka CTR if you're in that price range unless you're dead set on a chassis.

I voted for the RPR just because I had one and it was a great shooting rifle. But for $500 less money the Stealth should be just as good. All the savage rifle I have shoot just as well.

They all should work well it just comes down to personal preference and availability. Enjoy it when you get it.

what weight you looking for, what purpose is rifle for? you want a boat anchor and something to hunt with?

WHAT'S YOUR BUDGET??? remember you are going to have to spend AT LEAST 1K on optics. Or stay home.

Forget the Ruger, Savage . If you go Ruger there are a million for sale on various forums.

shop Europtics.com too. They usually have in stock where Whitakers is not.

I hate questions like this, so vague when you give "OTHER" as a choice

I just purchased a Bergara b-14 in 6.5. Based on a rem 700 action, it has the best out of the box trigger I have ever touched...also, the stock does not feel like a production gun stock either. Might take a look at them.

I vote for Chad's 'other'. He had a stainless T3 rebarreled (20 inch) and tuned up for me. Breathtaking accuracy.

That's a good point. If you're in the price range of an RPR, then Chad's Tikka with a Bartlein barrel would be incredibly difficult to beat for the $.

My vote goes to the Tikka T3X Tac A1.

Do some reading on this gun.

I picked up my Bergara B-14 yesterday. And I really like it. You can see it on my post.
