4 Accurate and Affordable Sniper Rifles

Long range shooting is a skill that takes knowledge and a lot of practice to master. Most civilians will use a nice hunting rifle to learn the basics. These are more than adequate for a 300 meter shot or so. But if you want to reach out to 800 or 1000 meters, you need to have a higher end rifle. So if you are serious about long range shooting, you have to invest a little money in a rifle that is better quality and built to higher tolerances. But, a high-end military-level sniper rifle is at least $5,000 and as much as $15,000. That’s more than the average civilian can spend on a rifle. But there are 4 accurate and affordable sniper rifles that are made by big firearm manufacturers. Let’s take a look at them.

Savage Arms 10 BA Stealth

Ruger Precision Rifle

Remington 700 Tactical Chassis

There are many different models of the Remington 700 and many ways to upgrade your existing rifles. But there is no need to upgrade anything on the Remington 700 Tactical Chassis, other than adding a nice scope to it. There is a considerable difference in price for the Remington over the previously mentioned rifles. Hell you can almost buy both the Savage and the Ruger for the same price as the Remington! Is it really that much better? Remington thinks so.

Features: Magpul MAG307 PRS Adjustable with Pistol Grip, Aluminum Chassis with Full Length Acessory Rail, X-Mark Pro Trigger, Target Tactical Bolt Handle

4 Accurate Sniper Rifles that are Affordable

All four of these rifles are really remarkable firearms. Each will shoot a sub-MOA with factory ammo at 100 yards. You will not be disappointed by any of them. Which one to buy? It really depends on the amount of money that you can invest.

If I was buying a 308 Win, I would buy the Ruger Precision Rifle. If I was buying the 6.5 Creedmoor I would go for the Savage Arms 10 BA Stealth. If I was the 300 Win Mag or 338 Lapua Mag I would go with the Remington 700 Tactical Chassis. Just my opinions.
