I'm seriously thinking about getting my first bolt action in .308 and am looking for some other opinions. The two rifles that I am thinking about right now are both Remington 700s but one is this years and final Classic and the other is the SPS. Does anyone have any other suggestions in the same price range ($400-$500). What kind of groups could I come to expect on average. 1"-2" groups sound about right at 100yrds? I will end up reloading sometime soon. I am just waiting on a friend to have some free time to teach me. I'll probably put a Leupold 3-9x40/50 or a 4-12x40/50. How does this all sound? Thanks for the opinions!
