Default Suppressor ready bolt action?

Looking for a bolt action, with a short barrel, either suppressor ready or will have cut and threaded. Looking for a traditional design, not one of these new fangled LRR abominations. Also, this is a ridiculous hang up I have, but its my hang up. The magazine needs to flush or close to flush with the stock.

There are so many options out there these days as to accuracy, i am a little overwhelmed.

I started by looking at Sako A7 and their Tikka brothers. Been reading good reviews on Savage, Roger, Begerra, etc. as well. Then there are a lot of options with Remington as well, but I am still skeptical to their quality/accuracy.

This is going to be a “beater” rifle or “truck gun”.

What says the green screen?

Check out what I found on GunBroker.com!https://www.gunbroker.com/item/827165200

This is your best option for a beater imo also available with 16 inch barrel

For a truck gun, I would get a TC compass. I know the barrel isn't 16", but you can get a decent suppressor ready rifle for around 200 bucks. Could even cut down barrel, re thread, and still only be around the $300 mark..

Let me also clarify, I am looking for something that will get sub MOA accuracy out of the box as well.

This is the reason for this thread, it seems there are a lot of options now days that I might not be aware of. I have a pretty sizable budget, but I am to understand there are a lot of options in lower priced offering that get this kind of performance.

Thanks for the replies. I know this could be a Dodge vs. Ford vs. Chevy type thread, so I am really looking for first hand knowledge of folks that actually own something and are getting the great performance you hear about in these lower priced bolt actions.

Thanks again.

What cal are you wanting to go with? or is that up in the air too? There are so many variables it's hard to recommend anything.
Rem 700 300 bo
6.5 cread in just about any action
308 in just about any action
get a K-31 and have it cut down
Have Alamo Precision build you something

You could always go with a take down style rig and screw the barrel off and on to make it even shorter.

Not settled on caliber, but .308 is my leaning. Not looking for a “build” or or special design, just a plain, out of the box option that is either already threaded or I have have machined.

Sideways, which Remington are you shooting? Thanks this is exactly the feedback I was looking for.

I have the Remington 700 SPS 20" threaded barrel 243 with Leupold 4x16x40 VX3i and it's an absolute tack driver. It is my truck gun as well. Nailed a coyote from 325 yards not long ago with it. Great gun and super accurate. Punches holes on top of each other all day. Pics below are of 243. Top pic is with new stock I added.


I am currently looking at getting the Remington 700 SPS 16.5' barrel 308 or the Bergara Special Purpose 18' barrel 6.5CM.

If you like the Bergara, check out RifleGear. Cheapest place I've found the Special Purpose, $689 i believe.

For the Remington 700 SPS 16.5" 308, check out GrabAGun.

I've been impressed with the Howa MiniAction rifles. I have them in 300 Blackout and 6.5 Grendel...both are really accurate. The Blackout has a 16" barrel and the Grendel has a 20"...both threaded.

If you have a sizable budget, you could build whatever you want. I did a Remington 700 45 Raptor with a 16" barrel from X-caliber all in an MDT LSS-XL chassis. I'm getting MOA groups with 250gr Hornady XTP's. If you wanted small, you could do a pistol build on a Black Collar Arms Pork Sword chassis. You could do it as a pistol and put a folding brace on it as well.

Get a Tikka CTR, checks all your boxes from the factory...you won't be disappointed.
If that's too spendy look at the Ruger American Ranch rifle.
Did you say what caliber you want?

They do have it in the 7.62x39 though which is nice because the ammo is dirt cheap.

Ruger predator would fit all your requirements and probably near the bottom of all listed as far as price. I can get sub 1” with my 22-250 and quality ammo most days.

Bergara Ridge Rifle SP. Threaded short barrel on a 700 footprint action, so upgrades are endless. Bergaras just shoot as well.

Yep! Always forget about it. **** accurate little rifle too. Personally it wouldnít hurt my feelings beating it like a truck gun, but I can see quite a few people who would due to costs though.

I have a tikka CTR in 260 that shoots lights out. I have no problem running it out to 800yards on steel targets. Its available in 308 also.

I also had a tikka t3 rebarreled with a medium contour barrel and cut to 16.25" and run it suppressed.. This is the gun I carry in my truck most of the time.

This is somewhat my concern. I don’t want to go thru all this to get a tack driver. It seems there is a prolific offering now at a lower price point that will get you accuracy without all this extra need.

Are you guys having to augment your REM’s to gain the accuracy? Are there other manufacturer’s that you don’t have to do this within that same price point?

I have two R700 SPS 16.5" rifles. One in .308 and the other in 300 blackout. Really enjoy both of them. With a timney trigger, aftermarket stock, and quality ammo the .308 does 1 MOA easy. Note that I am not a precision shooter, if I can get a rifle to 1 MOA a better shooter shouldn't have a problem.

Mine shot fine with the hogue stock they came with but simply don't like them & hate those x-mark triggers...I just made the guns better & yeah any skim bedded HS stock is going to improve groups over the cheap hogue & no bedding. If they shot like crap out of the box, I likely wouldn't have chased it. Crazy as big green is turning I still think Most those 700 AAC's, senderos, VSSF's, R's all get a bit more attn paid to them knowing their market insists on a moa gun.

If budget wasn't an issue, I would build exactly what you want...do you have a donor?? Also, I don't recall what cal you wanted or missed it??

My 700 was out of the box, scoped and lights out once sighted in, 100% factory. I did add a Timney trigger and a stock after a few months but the stock was just to change it up a little from my other 700 SPS. The factory trigger isn't terrible and is adjustable but i'm just a fan of the Timney Elite Hunter trigger so i added it in. I add aftermarket trigger to most all my rifles regardless. That said, I did all the modifications myself and it's super easy; maybe took 30 minutes. The pic above with the dead coyote was 100% factory.

R700s are like legos for adults. Super super easy to throw in triggers and stocks. They're cheap as well.

The stock rifles don't need any changes really, I am a trigger snob and I enjoy tinkering.

To get sub moa out of a factory rifle nowadays is a hit or miss, some people will say they have a tack driver and some will say they can’t get a good group with the same model. If the budget is not a option go with a custom build. Internal or flush magazine, after market stock bedded, short heavy threaded barrel, trued or aftermarket action. Since it’ll be a “beater” you can roll the dice with a out of box factory rifle with no mods. I had a built Savage that would shoot lights out now I have a custom build now the difference is night and day. Good luck.

With what you’re looking for I would go with the Rem 700 SPS and leave it stock. Or trade out stock and get it bedded plus a new trigger. Trigger $150 B&C stock $285.

I love my Ruger. Spend your budget on glass
You can add larger bolt handle, adjust trigger and a stock
If you want to dress it up later.

Are you guys having to augment your REM’s to gain the accuracy? Are there other manufacturer’s that you don’t have to do this within that same price point?
These 6 shots were out of the box bore sighted to dialed in at 100 yards. The other black stickers were from a different gun. I think you can get this from the Remmy 700, Bergara SP or Tika for what you are wanting to achieve .

I donít shoot factory rifles, but if I did and wanted what you described, Iíd look at a Tikka. I donít know if CZ makes a short threaded barrel, but if they did, thatís what Iíd most likely have for out of the box.
Crazy that someone that walks into a conversation with that much arrogance isn't familiar with the term "tack driver". If punching bulls-eyes and sub-MOA isn't good enough for you from a $500-$600 "Truck Gun" (if you're familiar with that term), I don't know what to tell ya lol.

It was sarcasm....I’m quite familiar with the term. It’s a “laughed at” saying by a lot of folks, but I guess all those people are arrogant too.

I have only bought adl's and bdl's to use for builds

The pss and aac rifles I have handled/shot/owned have all been decent shooters out of the box the aac's come threaded and I have had no issue with their triggers or need to do anythign other than normal setup on them to get accuracy.

The older BDL's were excellent rifles. If you want to walk into a store a buy a rifle then I would look for an AAC in 308
