    New Elk Rifle/Scope Combo Wish List

    If you had a budget between $3k - $4k, what would be your choice?

    If I were to look into a new elk rifle I would go with a 6.5-300 Weatherby in a Weatherby Accumark. That would take care of $2800 then top it off with a Leupold VX-6HD 3-18x44 scope with Leupold mounts and rings.

    That would pretty much take up all of that $4000
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost....

    I would buy a browning x-bolt hells-canyon speed in 300WSM with a XV 3i 4-15X50 CDS (Talley rings to match of course)

    In total you are looking at about $1600 total for this setup.

    My friend has one. With factory ammo he hit a pie plate at 500 yards every shot.

    1600$ to me seems like a lot for a rifle. Hard to believe how much some people wrap up in guns.

    Take the leftover money and put it towards your elk hunt.

    I considered selling my 300 WSM browning A-bolt and picking up a setup like this but I just cant get rid of it. It has been too good to me over the years. No sense in dumping one good gun for another to save 5 ounces...

    I thought that we were just dreaming here of what rifle we wanted?

    With a $4000 budget we can dream big.

    But other than that why get a new rifle if you don't need one..........I know because I want one.
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost....

    If we are California dreaming I would probably go with one of those fancy Christensen arm rifles in some very powerful caliber with a swarovski scope of some sort. lol

    That might go over budget though... lol

    Sad to say that could arguably be no mans land. As someone mentioned you can do quite well for 1600-2000 bucks. Then I?m not sure you gain much until you hit 5000-7500. Even then you may only gain 1/2 moa.
