Does anyone have a GOOD suggestion on a Bolt action rifle in 30-06 caliber? Somewhere in the range of $650-800.

At least scope mounts and synthetic stock. Stainless steel is ok. Preferred blued barrel.

Here we go on the best versus the worst. crazy

Or pay just a little bit more and buy a Howa that says Weatherby on it.

What is the normal twist per inch in 30-06 caliber?

For you HOWA fans, anyone else had the screw that holds the bolt stop break off? Happened on the one here. Wondering if that was a fluke or design flaw?

Probably a fluke. Those actions are pretty tough.

I have seen a rough chamber and forcing cone in 6.5x55 specimen. I heard they had some problems with those guns.

BTW, on the Howa, I am in the process of working up some reloads for it. Thought I ought to get some kind of idea of baseline accuracy, so shot a few groups with it. This one at 100 yards using Federal factory ammo with Sierra Match King bullets. In the hands of a good shooter, I suspect gun is capable of getting all 5 shots to touch.

You wont get the 'best' in your price range....but you wont go wrong with a Tikka. I have two of them, ( T3s) and they will shoot better than I can.

Congrats on your 30/06 decision, now you just gotta wade through the Ford versus Chevy argument. I saw a Winchester Model 70 Featherweight in 30/06 this past winter, for sale in Anchorage for $850. That should have been my new 30/06!
