    ....depends largely on what you like with that budget......

    Here's my Ruger M77 Hawkeye in 270 to whet your appetite......

    There are still new Sako 75's about for the top of your budget. This one, a Deluxe, is for 1,295 (but you could haggle) There are others out there too!

    I would not willingly part with my Sako 75, they are outstanding for the price.

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    I have had a Tikka T3 Lite in .270 from new.

    Out of the box was able to do 1" groups with no mod.

    Since adding a Northstar mod, I have tightened the groups to less that 1".

    You can get a new one for less than 1000.

    I will never part with mine. It will be with me for life.

    Good luck with you search

    Spend 300 on a good Parker Hale .270 and spend 700 more than you were already planning for on really good glass to go on top. Just as accurate as anything new. I have one, as do Mereside and Vizslamad, all in .270Win' and they are all accurate as hell (at least V's is when anyone other than him is firing it but that's his OAP eyes rather than the rifle).

    If it has to be new, I have endlessly impressed with Gadget's tupperware and stainless steel Tikka T3 - prints irritatingly small groups in all weathers with any round he shoves through it, from my polished and fettled handloads to crappy PPU ammo. I also like the X Bolt as it is light and has the nicest synthetic stock I have handled on a rifle.
