You don't need to own a farm or be a member of a club to get a firearms license.

I'm going to suggest either a remington 700, or a Sako of equiv quality. The Ruger '77s aren't accurate enough, generally speaking.

Chambered in .223 or maybe .308 if you need more power(wanted it to be cheap to shoot), with say a 24 or 26" barrel.

Blued barrel, with synthetic stock, for durability. Just keep that barrel oiled to keep away the rust.


You'll be lucky to find a more accurate combo for the price.

Ask him if he is a member of the SSAA, chances are he will be.

Robzy: Yes, it needs to be in a safe not easily penetratable, and fixed to the ground if it is not over 150kg empty.

Sorry to go offtopic, but what are the requirements for storage of a gun like this?

You have to keep it locked up, dont you?

Rob.



Yes and standards apply for the safe/cabinet.

Thanks for the input, I was looking at a .223 R700 like you suggested, and it looks like that might be a better option. Plus I can reload .223's, and looking at the price of 17HMR rounds there really isnt a major cost difference.

Yep. :)



A few years back i was looking at getting this exact model. Available in all common calibres that would be useful for general shooting(apart from big game).


You'll be lucky to find a more accurate rifle than one based on the R700 action, for under $2000.



edit for pedantics: this discounts second hand rifles, like sporterised Mauser '98s etc.

Well I am quite happy with my little Winchester lever action .22 magnum.
With a decent scope I am able to headshoot a wallaby at a couple of hundred meters most of the time.
Perhaps needs a slightly longer barrel for real accuracy as it only has a 20" on it.
So don't discount the little rimfire .22 magnum.

I think you'd be surprised with the accuracies of shorter barreled 22's ali...


My old man has a Ruger model 96 lever action, with an 18" barrel. I'm yet to fire a more accurate 22 in my life... pair it with remington subsonic hollowpoints, and she's amazingly accurate.

Having said that, i'm sure there are some nice CZ rifles that'd compete well against it... and ofcourse there are some VERY accurate Ruger 10/22's out there, which have been modded with heavy barrels, amongst other mods.




But yes, depending on your prey, a .22 WMR could be sufficient... and it is certainly cheaper than a CF rifle, not to mention more pleasant to shoot.

I had a Ruger Carbine in the Late 70's .44 Magnum nice for a light gun, killed pretty much anything up close.
Didn't bother with a scope, no point really the .44 Magnum hit hard enough under 100 meters but not much smack beyond 150 'twas a great point an shoot carbine.

This is it
http://www.ruger-firearms.com/Firearms/FAProdView?model=6301
it had a rotary magazine that flush fitted into the stock.

Sweet little camp carbine.

Why would you go with a pump action? At these ranges follow up shots don't have to be instantaneous, and accuracy is more important.

A bolt action is by far the superior tool for the job.

weatherby sub moa vanguard varmint .223 I have this in .308 version with a leupold 6x18x40 and it is very accurate out to 600+ yrds top rifle.

comes floated and bedded out of the factory with ajustable trigger and shoots under an inch out of the box gaurenteed will shoot better with handloads.

I use 155gr hollow tip match grade boat tail projectiles for my long range stuff and 44gr of ADI 2206H propellant, fucking absolutly unreal match with this rifle and handloads can't say a bad thing about my rifle.

But can it be had for under $1000?


The weatherby stuff IS very nice... but cheap?



I'd probably pair this rifle with maybe a 4-12x scope, rather than anything so extreme as a x-18x scope... and instead get a piece of glass that'll suck the light in better, 50mm objective lens..

I go shooting a little at night with my rifle and 40mm objective end scope on a luepold is great because of the quality of the glass you lose very little light...

also the weatherby sub MOA varmin range can be had for around the $1000 dollar mark not cheap but you get what you pay for fucking top not rifle.

theres my baby, ive changed the scope mounts to long range ones since that photo but it looks pretty much the same.
