Default Suggestions on a new rifle.

Well my plan was to buy a Tikka T3 in a Walnut stock with the stainless barrel, but Beretta USA has quit importing this one to the US. So now I want your recommendations on a nice rifle with the following requirements.

Wood or Laminate Stock - no synthetic
Stainless Barrel/Action
24" or 22" Barrel
300 Win Mag
Under $800 for gun only

I know I can find the Tikka on gunbroker, but I have about half the money in gift cards to a local gun shop so that is out for now.

Ruger and Remington have models that meet those criteria.Might be just a bit more on price though.Savage will come in below 800 easy but the wood's none to good on the ones I've seen.Really nice trigger though and most are very accurate right out of the box.

You cant go wrong with either a remington or ruger. They both make really nice guns. I think remington would be on the higher up price range more than ruger would. You can get a ruger hawkeye off of gunbroker for around $555. Its a reliable and solid rifle.

Savage makes the 114 Classic

Ruger has the Hawkeye

It seems that Browning and Remington makes the 300 Win Mag with 26" barrels.

Sorry about that. I don't think any of those have stainless barrels. Guess I wasn't paying attention.

Plus the Rugers have the scope bases milled into them and I think they still come with rings?? Last one I bought did. That saves around 75-100 bucks.

To get stainless and wood at same time is going to be rather limited in selection. If you had a higher budget I would suggest browning a-bolt/x-bolt "white gold mediallion" as it's stainless with NICE wood stock.
