    I am seeking advise as to what would be a good quality off the shelf .308 Winchester HB Target Rifle.

    I have not looked in at the market in a number of years and have kind of lost touch.

    Not looking to set records, just have fun out to 200 yards.

    Must be a stock rifle or a completed project.

    The Ruger M77 is a great out of the box acurate rifle, but it's not HB.

    Their M77 MKII VT (varmit / target) is a heavy barrel, great gun, I shot out the barrel on one after about 4000 rounds and Ruger rebarreled it for under $200 dollars. I shot a 3 shot group at 200 yards with it that measured 0.198". Neather my 40X nor my Match rifle have shot better than that.
    With the right hand loads that rifle shot consistent 5/8" groups at 200 yds.

    I'm not trying to blow smoke here. I prefer Remington 700 actions because I think it's a better design, but that Ruger shot like a house o'fire. :D

    Here's a link to the Ruger.

    A couple of other choices are the Remington 700

    Then there's Savage. The Savage is a great gun for the money.

    On Savages site click on TARGET. They have some real nice stuff there.


    Don't let the prices scare you. The MSRP is always $200 or so higher than real world prices.

    I hope this helps. Welcome to the site. ;) :)
