Default Modern Day Equivalents.

After I had done the research I was looking for what I thought would be a cheap rifle for longer range; ( besides the one I already use ) that had ammo for a cheaper price like the 7.62mm NATO round. I found out the rifle I wanted SVD Dragunov is extremely rare and expensive. What would be a modern day equivalent that wont break the bank? Of the few sites I checked most don't have one for sale, one site had a price marked at $4,000.
Thanks for your input.

M1 Garand in 30-06. Milsurp ammo still around. If you are a US citizen, you can get one from the CMP- $495 for a rack grade shooter.

If you are set on finding a SVD you can look at J&G Sales.

They currently have a Romanian PSL-54C Sniper Rifle 7.62X54R with 4x PSO style Scope and a Yugoslavian M76 Sporter rifle with scope, in 8mm.

Classic Arms has some fun looking long barrel AK variants, such as this ROMANIAN AES10-B HEAVY BARREL AK SNIPER. $700 and add your own scope.
