Default Tactical rifle?

hi im kevyn and im new to the forum anyway since the people around seem friendly ^^ i'm going to ask some questions these questions may seem kiddy and all but please dun bash me.Anyway i just got my firearms license in down under and it isnt very much different from the U.S i think...anyway i'm back in my home country and took up some odd jobs and saved for a rifle have about 1.7k usd saved up and I want to buy a rifle.Not just any rifle(here's the kiddy part)but a cool ass rifle that is like modern?Dun really know how to put it but something along the line of a remington defence MSR kinda look and it has to be a bolt action cos i dun have a semi-auto license.Any help would be appreciated oh and I would most probably like a rifle that can not only look good but is accurate as well.Thx i adv sry for the long post

Welcome!

It's not a MSR, but a Ruger scout rifle looks kinda like an M14.

Also, being an Aussie, you have to have at least some appreciation for the Lee Enfield rifles, a must have in my opinion. Though its not tactical, with your budget, you could get both.

If the .223/5.56 is legal down there I would buy the Mossberg MVP. It uses an AR mags.It is accurate and can fire 5.56 ammo . Rifle is getting some very good reviews. Even the price is right to allow for a better scope for it.http://www.mossberg.com/images/Mossberg_Guns/930/New/27710.jpg

as far as tactical rifles go i like the Weatherby Mark V TRR RC(Range Certified)camo and Mark V TRR Custom Magnums best. Black Diamond rifles and H-S Precision also make some great tactical rifles. these rifles may be a little more expensive and cost more than what you have saved up but i don't think there is anything wrong with saving up more money and taking a little more time to get great quality rifles. hope this helps. also the cartridges i like best for these kind of rifles is the 30-378Wby and .338 Lapua.

cool checked out all the rifles you guys suggested and i have to say i was actually looking for rifles chambered in .223 and .308 cause they're cheaper to fire and all.Although if i had aloot more money(which i don't) i would consider getting a lapua magnum.The ruger scout has too short of a barrel for me cause i'm not goin to hunt with it.but the remington 700 has lots of customisation options out there so i think I'm leaning more to the r700 but i don't really like how it looks so...but the mvp on the other hand well i already like how it looks so i'm kinda stuck between the two can any one give me the pros and cons of both of em please?thx in adv =D

Default Steyr Australia

Olin (Winchester) distributes Steyr in Australia...

Scout Stainless
SSG04 A1
Elite Stainless

http://www.olin.com.au/products/firearms/products.aspx?type=centrefirerifles&category=bolt

Trade capacity-constraints for increased power, obviously. The Scout Stainless in .308 would be pretty sweet with either glass or it's flip-up sights.
