Okay, I'm back, I didn't get a $1000 rifle - I saved up.

So what's the best $2k rifle out there? 6.5 creedmoor for me.

What use cases? Hunt? Competition? If competition, what type? Ring steel at distance? Punch paper?

With $2k Build a custom rig. Defiance tenacity $900 action, Patriot Valley Arms “Pva” cut rifling prefit with threaded muzzle $650, TriggerTech or Timney trigger >$200, and KRG Bravo $350. Total >$2,050
If you went with a origin action and button rifling pva prefit barrel you’d save enough to get the TriggerTech diamond trigger and area419 hellfire muzzle brake and still be under $2k.
You might find something just as good but I don’t know what or where you’d find it. Good luck

I have the Savage version and it's 1/2 MOA with SMK 175 and Berger 185 Juggs hand loads and 3/4 MOA w/ 185 Jugg FGMM factory ammo. Paid $700 for .308. The 6.5 CM command more due to popularity.

    Save 500 more for the ARC xylo Nucleus would be my choice.

    Badrock and MPA are two solid choices.

    Wondering the same thing. Answers to the original question are useless without an answer to yours.

    Something put together from parts here.

    Bighorn TL3 BA by SAC
    Bartlein 26” barrel - 6.5 creed
    APA fat bastard gen 2
    TT Diamond
    KSS A.T.S
    Krg bravo
    Nelson precision arca rail

    no that group doesn’t happen all the time, but it’s well under 1/2 moa gun and I’m just shooting factory Hornady 140. All in for rifle (sans optics), I’m right at or under $2k

    Yep, going to be a 2.5k rifle but there seems to be a lot of juice on that for the price. Would like to see pictures and listing on it. Their website doesn't reflect the listing currently.

    Their website isn't always the most up to date, but I guarantee if you call them they'd be happy to run over the options with you.

    Where is this $2000? I'll buy 10.
    Action is 1250
    barrel is ~ 500
    trigger is 250
    Tuning break ~ 185
    KRG Bravo is $350

    thats why I stated buying used on here in the PX.

    BA for $1500, Krg for$300, brake for $125, trigger for $220, and tuner for $200

    You can change the trigger out for cheaper as well to get it closer to $2k and not run a tuner will be at even cheaper

    Well, I'm an idiot. I should have read a little better. Didn't see the part about buying parts here.

    I apologize.

    One of the 4th of July ARC rifles. That was and is the best 2K 6.5 CM rifle deals. Just happen to have an unfired one setting here. If your looking...
