    How about a Savage model 12 FV? Comes in several calibers including 223.

    I suggest a Tikka varmint. They have a 1:8 twist and shoot amazingly. Put a 10 dollar Trigger spring in it and it’s almost as good as a $250 Timmeny and the gun will shoot 1/2” groups at 100 all day.

    If you want to build on a gun I love the Remington 700 for all the options available but I think you can do just as much with a Savage or Tikka. 300 yards is a chip shot, I can hit a 10” plate at 720 all day long and I have put people on a 520 yard target first shot and I know guys can do over 1000 with a 223.

    Spend your money on good optics and mounts, clarity is more important than power. I have a 4-14 Nightforce SHV and I shoot further with it than I ever could with the Vortex 6-24. Upgrade the rifle later as you see fit.

    My CZ Lux in .223, the 44mm objective Sightron is on something more suited now and the Lux sports a Leupold 3-9x40 with shorter rings. Much better aesthetically / functionality. It is my light centre fire laser beam, I even have a flush 3rd mag inbound.... Can't say enough on how nice these CZ's work. Bought this early 2016.

    Crap cell photo, I'll take it out for a range trip this weekend in it's current guise....

    Another vote for the CZ 527 rifle. The set trigger is a joy to use. I do like my Tikka in 204 as well, I would be hard pressed to choose between them.

    "...regular mvp isn't going to cost $1300 either..." The Light-Chassis does at Cabela's Canada. Those others aren't the same thing. The whole thing depends on one's budget anyway.

    Yea, and he never said he wanted the chassis system lol and I was quoting canadian prices for the mvp like he said he wanted. The rifle comes in many configs, to say it costs $1300 out of the gate without acknowledging the prices of the other models - and defending doing that - is just mind boggling.

    Right now for glass the best I have is a Bushnell 18x with .223 ballistic reticle. I like it for the drop reticle and easy to adjust knobs, it's currently sitting on my AR, but I feel it could be put to better use.

    I was thinking of a Tikka varmint for a .223 bolt gun some day. I think they make a left hand one.

    I had a look at one of these in 6.5 CM at the corner gunshop a little while back. The guy taking over the business (slowly) has one in 260 Rem and does some fairly long distance work with it, beauty of a firearm. The next dream rifle is either a Tikka Varmint or an X-bolt Hell's Canyon Long Range, in either 260 or 6.5 CM (damn near identical anyway). I can't make up my mind but the wallet's not full enough for either, so I've got time....
