My current rifle is a mosin Nagant sniper. So what would be the obvious choice of rifle for accuracy? I was thinking Remington 700? For one it's a military rifle used in Vietnam! That's a plus for me I like history. Any other rifle in a decent price range? Another thing what do I need to do to the Remington?
Timmney trigger?
Bed the rifle?
Muzzle brake?
Most importantly which scope(budget price)?

Hmmm, sounds like you have an idea what you want, so...


So what would be the obvious choice of rifle for accuracy? I was thinking Remington 700? Sure? I like them, especially the 5R, given your comment on the military history?
Any other rifle in a decent price range? ...all of them? Weatherby, Winchester, Tikka (T3 on sale right now) Browning, Ruger...etc?
Another thing what do I need to do to the Remington? Try it stock to see what you like about it first, but...

Timmney trigger? Sure? I like them, have one in my Mosin:).

Bed the rifle? Never a bad idea?

Muzzle brake? Depends on the calibre and purpose intended?

Most importantly which scope(budget price)? Budget price? Bushnell fixed 10x. In Burris Signature rings.

What's your budget including the sights? Think roughly 6 grand Canadian.
The only M700 model that's remotely related to any military is their M24 model. An M24 is rumoured to run 4 grand US and up. Would be a special order thing if it's even available here. 'Available here" means a Canadian distributor has one.
It's really just a heavy barreled M700. The 5R is as close as you can get. Still just a gussied up M700. Easy and inexpensive(I'm spending your money. snicker.) enough to do that yourself if you start with a heavy barreled M700.
"...Any other rifle..." Heavy barreled Win M70.
Do not even think about spending big money on a rifle then putting on a budge priced sight.

Basically my advice...
Get a rem700 sps tactical, get a good scope(I like nikons, the bushnell 10x is popular too), and buy a reloading setup - start reloading. Shoot shoot shoot shoot.
Then you'll know what you want to spend money on, without needing our advice.

Weren't winchesters used by the military too? I seem to recall a winchester with a loooong old school scope used by the military.
