I'm tired of my mall ninja aspirations and magnum-only Bubba ways. I didn't grow up around guns and have spent my first couple of years in this hobby focusing on handguns and wasting time dreaming of tacticool FALs, big-bore AR-15s, and elaborate wildcat cartridges in Mannlicher-stocked custom rifles. It's time to get my shit together and learn some real (basic) marksmanship. My eventual budget will be $1200, absolute tops. I'm leaning hard towards .280 Remington (I like the .284 bullets and the '06 based case capacity is nice) in a Remington 700 action (ubiquity rules) with a 4-14/16x scope. Cartridge questions aren't what I'm looking to address here; the tools I use to send the bullet to the target are. I know that a quality, basic rifle & scope will outshoot my skill level at this point, but I'd like to be setup as my skills develop. I can't afford everything, so need to know this: what's the best use of my money? Rifle Glass (brand?) Scope rings/mount/level? Better Barrel? Better Stock (B&C / Manners / Macmillian)? Trigger (Timney / Jewel)? Bipod?
