    308 (or similar calibre) hunting rifle - what's out there for around $1000?

    Hey guys,
    I'm looking to get a new hunting rifle, budget is around the $1000 mark. Happy with 2nd hand, preferably stainless. Just wondering what's out there before go buy new (probably be a S/S Howa for new at this price)
    Brands I'm interested in are: Howa, Tikka, and Bergara - would shell out more if anyone has one of the Bergara extreme hunters they wanted to sell! Open to suggestions . Cheers guys!

    Hi mate, I've got a 308 Tikka Elite (threaded and fluted barrel) that I bought back in May for $1750. Looking to upgrade to a bigger calibre for long range hunting. Yours for $1300. Cheers

    I’ve got a Remington ADL stainless in .308 16.5” with a DPT can on it. Bedded in the synthetic stock, shoots real nice. Trigger tech trigger installed too.

    Yours for $800

    Hey guys, my temporary insanity has passed, and I’ve decided to hold on to it for the meantime. I’m contemplating using it to build a medium bore thumper for a bit of fun.

    No suppressor? What’s the thread?
