Good 308 bolt gun with a threaded barrel

What's a good bolt action rifle that comes with a threaded barrel? Looking for a lower cost entry level rifle, but dependable. I've considered a Remington 700, but are there better rifles in the same price range?

I have a weatherby weatherguard HBAR that I love. Great trigger and will put ten rounds into just over an inch. When I get some time I'm going to try to tighten that up because I'm sure it can do it.

How about a Ruger American? Threaded barrel, and detachable mags are options

I would take a look at the Thompson center compass as well as the ruger American. I personally own a Thompson center which I shoot steel wolf or Tula ammo through and the accuracy is just incredible. My close friend was able to shoot a 1 inch group at 200yrds and the rifle is garaunteed 1moa. Also, from what Iíve heard the new Remingtons are not made near as well as the older.

Those Ruger Americans have been very tempting, even more so since they ditched to rotary mags for the AICS mags. I've also been looking at the Savage 110s because with a vise and wrench you can change barrels relatively easily.

I'm looking to get back into long range precision myself.

Caliber:
Everyone seems to be raving about the 6.5 and it would seem to be better from a precision stand point. Isn't the army looking to replace the 5.56 with 6.5 ? But for now, I'm going to stick to the .308 as well.
Reason being:
- I don't need another caliber to try and stockpile
- General availability
- Price
- Other owned weapon of same caliber, aka interchangeability.

https://rifleshooter.com/2017/12/why...08-winchester/

Stock:
Traditional or Modular. I am still debating this and reading further.

The modular AR looking / parts does have some appeal but somehow just doesn't feel like it would be rugged enough. I am thinking more of an all around bolt, such as one that could be carried into hill country for hunting and not just a bench shooter. I have read complaints about the buttstocks on the modular being too wobbly. I have not personal experience on the matter. As such, and maybe more personal preference as well is the traditional hunting type stock like : http://store.jlowesguns.com/rifles/b...111-twist-10rd

Traditional seem to be a bit less in the $$$ as well.


Brand:

We had the rem 700 based rifle in my platoon. Sniper's-hide has a custom Ashbury Precision Ordnance custom rifle based on the 700 platform, and Cabela's has the base Ashbury Saber M700 on sale for 999. I haven't sat down to see what the difference is, probably trigger job on the SH for starters. Also , upgrade and replacement parts highly available. Or straight up buy a Remington 700.

Another RAVE online is Tikka , Tikka, Tikka.... Every read says right out of the box awesome. I've been eyeing the t3x CTR linked above, along with the more pricy and modular TAC A1. Make sure the threading is correct, as some of their models don't use 5/8-24 , and instead use 18x1.

I also read great things about HOWA. kstone mentioned the Weatherby, which I think uses the howa 1500 barrel. The HACT Trigger on the HOWA HCR gets good reviews, it's a two stage, but youtube'rs say the Savage Accutrigger is better. I have a Savage B17 and love that trigger.

http://store.jlowesguns.com/rifles/b...e-black-finish

The Savage B10 Stealth Evolution was on my list. But, it's a good bit pricier and I've read there have been a small percentage of feed / ejection issues. But, solid shooter nonetheless.

Then there are the others. Bergara, Thompson Center, Ruger, Mossberg, etc, so many choices. How does one choose? Is this how women feel about shoe shopping?

I have a 700 SPS Tactical and i really like it. however if you want something different or cheaper sign up for grab a gun, i see them post great deals all the time for 308 rifles with threaded barrels. Sometime as low as 350.00-399.00.
