Default Stay Or Upgrade?

Howdy,

Well i just bought a Savage 111LR Hunter .300 Win Mag..



Now i got some cash extra laying around from my dad(He give me some cash to borrow.Yes i know i'm a gun freak). So i wanted to buy another caliber, either a Savage 111 lr hunter or maybe a used ..50 bmg rifle.

I'm looking for a under 3,000 dollars.

Let me think. What rifle is tactical look that is under 3,000.

I like Strong and Powerful caliber and tactical rifle.

Let me know what some rifle that you know that is like the one im describing.

Edit: Please, No Negative comments.

look into the Armalite AR 50. 50 BMG single shot bolt action, weighs in at about 32 lbs. and IIRC, a MSRP of around $3300. i have handled one and it's very solid and seems well built.

the ones i have seen are almost as expensive as an entire rifle and you still need an AR lower.
