What does a Nosler M48 with these options cost????
I know that it is out of my pricerange but what is Nosler getting for a M48 setup like yours? The scope is the only part of your setup that I know I could afford. I am wondering if a Remington M700 stainless mountain rifle in 7mm-08 would shoot and handle in the same league as your Nosler. There are some of the Remingtons offered in Gunbroker with a Bell and Carlson synthedic stock priced around 900 dollars.
In most cases the rifle shoots better than the average shooter can do with it. The big difference is the shooters that demand 1/2" groups and pay bigger bucks/efforts to get there. I'm a hunter first so sub 1" groups isn't a top priority for me, however, having a rifle that will do it would be big deal! When my TC omega wouldn't group at all, I sent it back, TC re-crowned the barrel and now it shoots like a dream.
