    So I own a Browning A-Bolt White Gold Medallion and I have realized it is just to nice to hunt with. So I've decided to sell it for a stainless/synthetic gun that I can paint camo. The rifle should be about $1,000. What one do you think I should get? My favorites are the Weatherby vanguard Sub-MOA stainless, Steyr-Mannlicher Pro-Hunter Stainless, and the Kimber Montana.

    Caliber is not an issue because I know what one I want :)

    Does anyone know the most accurate of these rifles?

    Sprice, I hunt with a Prohunter (blue) and a Prohunter (blue) Mountain in 270, and have a safe queen Prohunter Stainless in 7mm Rem Mag. All three are excellent shooters, the full length 270 will shoot under 1/2" on a good day. I love the ergonomics, the balance, the tang safety. I hunt in wet Alabama and have no problem with the blueing on the Steyrs-- I just wipe them down with Eezox after a rainy day. All your choices are good rifles, it will come down to personal preference. Try to get your hands on them for comparisons. My SBSs shoot best when you rest them just forward of the magazine, and they are picky about ammunition--they do well with regular Hornady loads, but spray the Hornady Light Mag stuff all over the place.
