Im going to purchase a rifle soon and want to be about $1K-1.2K all in with scope.

Looking at a Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40 for the scope.

So what would be a quality rifle in the $600-$800 range that would be accurate and reliable.

The caliber will .30 06'

In a brand new rifle, I would go with the Ruger M77 Hawkeye (blue and wood) or the Winchester model 70 (CRF).

In a used gun, I would buy the Remington 700 BDL rodeojoe had in the classifieds. It was nice and well under your budget.

There are many but I would recommend that you actually handle the ones you like and go from there. Pick them up and shoulder them and see how they feel and fit you. I have some quality rifles, one for example is a Sako M995 7 MAG. It is a quality rifle with a accuracy guarantee, but it doesn't fit me and it has a long barrel and I just don't like shooting it. It sits in the gun safe.
Hope this may help in your decision.

Bought a browning A-Bolt Medallion in .270 when I graduated college I love it. For me I wanted a wood stock and it came down to the Browing or the Remmy. I chose the Browning and I am very happy with it.

All you need is a Ruger model 1. The stainless with gray laminate is pretty sweet looking. The ones i have shoot excellent.
