Looking to purchase my first precision rifle and optics. My budget is around 3K.  I looking at the Ruger Precision Rifle in 6mm a Bergara or Savage 110 tactical, 10 GRS  or other.  I reload no that not is an issue. My other sport is I shoot IDPA and USPSA.  I would appreciate any suggestions.

What is the purpose for the rifle? To compete? What discipline? For fun?

I bought a Remington 700 ADL Tactical in 6.5 Creedmoor for $503.xx at Dick's, topped it with a Vortex Golden Eagle ($1300), added a Harris 6-9" bipod(stolen from another rifle), Timney Calvin Elite trigger($150 on sale), and an SPT HuDu brake($165). Only thing I did was put the barreled action in a barrel vise and tighten the atrocious headspace Remington sends their rifles out with and lap the barrel. I've shot 150gr Sierra Matchkings at 2925fps and have yet to look back. All in, I've got more I'm the scope than the rifle. You don't need to spend massive bucks on a rifle to compete with guys spending double, or more, what you did.

Really?  Who is it you're trying to compete against using a rifle with no magazine and a second focal plane scope, exactly? This is some of the worse advice I've seen recently...
