    SUB MOA at 1000 yards??? the best your going to get out of even the TOP of the line military SASR is 8-10 MOA at 1000 yards. there are to many variables for any gun to be key holing shots at 1000 yds. and thats with heavy bullets like 168gr gold match for the .308 not light varmint rounds in the 45 - 100gr ammo range.

    Savage has a line of varmet rifles that does include 308 and 300 wsm in its line. I have the mdl 12 stainless 26" bbl and i shoot speed goats in new mexico up to 5 to 600 yrds. I dont shoot to 1000 yrds so i cant say, but mine is accurate beyond belief. Get on savages' web site and check it out, you'll be suprised. Savage rifles fill the bill.

    They also make a target rifle now in 308 with a 30" bbl.

    model 12 savage in 22-250. Mine has awesome groups. A really good shooter. Though you better have a great scope to be shooting that far and that accurate

    I love mine. I bought it from dick's for 400 bucks with a scope on it. It has shot one hole groups. Keep in mind though, sub-MOA is an angle measurement. It's pretty close to an inch at one hundred yards. Which equates to 10 inches at 1000 yards, still an MOA. That's pretty tough though, because the targets get awful small at that point and even with a scope that's hard to see a spot that small enough to aim at to shoot a group that small. But it's possible, but it tends to be a scope, rest, and shooter problems at point. Not the gun.
