    Cool WTB .308

    New member but I bet I'm here a bit from now on! I want a .308 for the young fellas, anything considered but of real interest will be a Tikka T3, Rem 700 or Rem model 7, Howa 1500, or the Ruger American. I've got a budget that I'm sticking to, taking into account I can get into most of the above including a (budget) scope and still with the grease on for around $1k, if it's going to be anywhere near that I'll just buy new. Most of the Trademe sellers are too high, so looking forward to seeing what's around on here! I'm also in the market for a .223, same as above but not so urgent.

    Still want one, gone off the Howa though coz a bit on the heavy side, but will consider any of the budget brands for the right price.

    Price is an interesting debate all by itself, might start that discussion on the appropriate forum!
