I believe the Savage is the most consistent rifle for out of the box accuracy that you can find, at least for less than $2000.
I know some of the others may look nicer but I think beauty is in small groups, and here they shine.
I have one Tikka which was sold as the Ithaca LSA65. It's a great gun but a consistant 1.5" grouper at best, my 1895 Marlin will out shoot it.
Two of my three Savage's will do from 1/4"- 1/2" with bull barrels and the third will do from 3/4" to 1" with a sporter profile.
I have also seen some good accuracy from the Mossburg centerfire bolt gun, and the price is reasonable on these also.

Default good bang for buck...

I'm a die hard Remington fan, but, it's hard to beat the plain package weatherby, which comes in a vast choice of calibers, for about 470.00 in blue, 560.00 in SS. I've shot several that grouped into 1-2 moa with off the shelf ammo...and half that with some tweaked handloads.

and if you wany a weatherby without the price get a HOWA, they make the Weatherby vanguard for them and its the same gun for less money

I went with the Savage 110 in .30-06 and love it. It was recommened to me on several other gun forums I'm on. It's cheap and was dead on out of the box (the sight needed adjusted slightly)... I was putting smaller than a 1" hole at 50 yards with 3~ shots.

I love it and they can be had from Walmart for under $400 with a synthetic stock. I grabbed mine from Bass Pro for right around $530 with a wood stock.

Default Most Accurate : Weatherby Vanguard Varmint

Most accurate under $ 600 would be a Weatherby Vanguard Varmint Heavy Barrel in 308...chrome moly in Synthetic stock.
Will shoot MOA or under out of the box.

#2 choice Howa 308 Varmint chrome moly in Hogue synthetic stock

Wither will out shoot anything else in their class !

Good glass and adjust trigger for 1/2 MOA rifle.

I also like the Savage model 11. For just over $400 you can't beat it. The accu-trigger is great. I can shoot 1 inch groups at 100 yd.s with $11 a box Federal 308 ammo.
