    Get a nice cheap secondhand accurate rifle (not something shot out) and spend more money on the scope.

    Just about anything that does not have the Remington name on it .

    See post above for excellent advice

    ! I agree with both of the above posts. Most of all. get what YOU like, not what your friend or a dealer tells you you need. I took my old Husqvarna Model 648 (circa 1944) out last evening and fired off my last few rounds so I could reload the brass and realized just how much I like that rifle... wooden stock, iron sights and all. It just fits me! Off hand I put three, 206 grain bullets inside a 3/4" circle at 25M. It's a $200 rifle that shoots like a million bucks.

    That's the kind of rifle you need.~Muir

    Yep all good advice. I'd go for an S&B 8x56 scope, leaving for about 400 for the rifle. That'll get you a really good econd hand one...

    Guess who's got a second hand S&B 8 x 56 for sale (Hungarian) - result of a swap.
