Best "bang for your buck" synthetic bolt action

Helping my dad look for a new 30.06 bolt action synthetic stock. He doesn't want to spend a lot though. Any suggestions?

If I were on a budget, I'd look at that Ruger American. My uncle won one in .30/06. Great rifle.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

TC Venture. There is a $75 rebate until the end of this month. The Dicks Sporting
Goods by me has them on sale for $380. With a $75 rebate, you are down to $305.

The Remington 783 would also be another option. The two I've shot have been very accurate. Grices has them on sale and with the $40 rebate, they end up at $260.

Savage axis is what I would pick up.

Ruger American is a good one for the cost. Another would be a Savage M110or111. Affordable, accurate, available.
I know the Rem710 is affordable, but IMO they are UGLY. However, the Rem710 is another one of your options when considering a best "bang for your buck" rifle.

I personally would go with the savage.

Getting a hair tougher to find, but a Stevens M200 I would consider too. I remeber when they first came out they where super cheap (maybe $250).

I was looking at these. Both Westmoreland Dicks only have the Dream Season edition. They are $559 on sale. Did you see them advertised somewhere?

Check out the Ruger Americans. I bought one in 308 and love it.

I second the Savage Axis. It is a new model this year. I love my Savage Axis 11/111 trophy hunter in .270.

I've seen the Axis XP and 111. What's the big difference between the two? About $170 price difference.
