I can't say that I've ever seen anyone shoot snipe with a rifle,but maybe I'm wrong.
We like to use the term "Tactical Rifle" around here.
The problem your going to find is there is no such thing as a "Good-Cheap" tactical rifle.
You can buy a cheap rifle,or save your pennies up and buy a lower tier tactical rifle for under $800 without quality optics.
A Savage model 10 or 12,or a Remington 700 SPS would be a base model for what your looking for.Both brands are great shooters.
I personally like the Savage,and have 5 of their heavy barreled Tactical and Target rifles in 223,25/06,308,and 300WM.
The cheapest $ amount in any of my setups is my model 12 223.I bought the rifle used,and still have about $1k in it after changing the stock,installing quality bases and rings,scope,ND-3 laser,and a Rifle Basix trigger.
You can find a good used rifle like the Savage 10/12 or Remington SPS for $350-500 if you look hard enough.That would be a good start.
