M14 beat me to the punch on that one. Both a much better down range performers than then vaulted 308.....

The site I have been looking on only has a few caliber offerings, 308 being the best. I would like to have a different caliber such as the 260, but I can't find any sites that have it. If anyone here has any websites that can give me a better selection of calibers it would be greatly appreciated if you could share them with me. I would like it to be just a barrelled action so I can put a save a bit of money. It doesn't matter to me if the rifle is heavy or not, I'd prefer it with a heavy barrel because it's more accurate at longer ranges, and its steadier for off hand shots, if I need to take one.

Synthetic | Weatherby.com

Weatherby is importing the Howa with a few very minor changes. Their Vainguard line offers a ton of calibers...

Here in Canada, those weatherby vanguards cost around 700 to $800. Do you guys know of any other cheaper barrelled actions?
