I've got 1000 dollars to put towards another rifle. What should I get. I've got plenty of guns but no real dedicated long range rig. I know a grand doesn't get me there but it could be a start! What would yall buy?

Hard to beat a 6.5 Creedmore with a real good scope on top!

That was the rifle that got me started. Shooting pumpkins full of water at 425. We took video. May have been the most fun Iíve had yet. That was a first gen CTR. Crappy stock and non threaded barrel. Extremely accurate though.

This has been going through my mind. I don't have a 6.5 creed more either.

Ruger RPR, had one out today in 6.5 Creedmoor and it ran like a top, making some very challenging shots.

Or

A Tikka CTR

I'd bet my lunch money on both of them.

Gen2 RPR were selling for under $1K a couple weeks ago. You could wait for a price drop again. Then save money for a scope in the meantime.

Tikka CTR 6.5 creedmoor would be hard to beat. Nothing wrong with an RPR either.

If you start missing shots, it probably won't be because of the rifle with either of those.

If you are talking $1k for the whole rig, I'd look at a Savage 10FCP-SR in 6.5 plus an SWFA fixed-power scope.

What rifles and scopes do you already have?

Do you have reloading equipment?

A suppressed 22 LR bolt gun, and shoot the hell out of it. Target practice is good, and fun especially when it's cheap.

I'd look at one of the 6.5 creedmore bergara rifles. They are in your price range and remember seeing another poster or two with one that was very pleased with it.

Shop harder. My Cabela's had a new one for $949, and I know you can beat that by $100-150 easily on the net. When I bought my CTR my LGS had a Bergara and he offered it to me for $900. If it had weighed the same as the Tikka I likely would have bought it. But I knew the Tikka would be a shooter out of the box and I didn't want to spend time monkeying with the Bergara if by chance it wasn't.

Edit Reason: I assume you mean the Bergara HMR
