Tikka stainless composite.  I've bought three of them in the last year and they are all very good shooters.

Remington 700 in SPS, matte or SS, would be my choice for your budget.
I like the accuracy of all of my Remington's and I have never had a problem in over thirty years. The stocks are well designed and they handle and balance well. They also have pleasant lines to my eyes.

I like them all, if you find a rifle in that price range that fits your "style" I'd go for it.  There's really not a bad one out there, even the sub $500.00 rifles from Savage, Mossberg, Marlin, T/C are all decent shooters.  To me it boils down to personal preference, I have my favorites, but I can't say they are better than the others.

I highly recommend the Tikka T3 in stainless composite as well.  It is light and accurate out of the box.  Mine is in a .30'06 and I love it.  I will also say that it is about the slickest action in the business.

I have two Savage Model 11s and they are nice.  Wasn't a fan of synthetic stocks... but I've gotten over that now and kind of like them for my knock around guns.   If you can find a Rem 700 CDL for $600.00, that would be my first choice.... got one for my Son couple of years ago in .270 and it's fabulous!

I'm with Pyro. At $399 they are a steal. I have owned several, and still own some. One of them was the best shooting rifle I've ever seen. I should have probably kept it.

Don't know if they still make the Vanguard in SS, but if so, that would be my very close second choice to the 700 SPS SS. Just swap out that horrid TG assembly for a PTG unit and you'd have a fine rig by any standard.

I would say the SAIGA series of rifles. accurate and cheap with a whole lot of room to customize.

I know its a little late, but why not Sako A3 ?  They were clearing them out for what I thought was really low...perhaps a reason, never had the Sako but have Tikka Super Varmint and a Tikka Varmint in 308...both super triggers that break very crisp from factory, well built and finished rifles.  Would assume Sako would be all that and maybe more?

at one time i would have said reminton 700, but the last few rifles i have bought have been savages i jus bought a savage 112 bvtss 25-06, its sub moa with factory ammo,i also bought a savage model 12 204 its a tack driver to say the least it shoots same hole at 200 yds,thats my zero. both of these guns are the hvy bbl.  guns and i cant complain. i have shot the cheaper savages and they shoot great.the marlin xs7 and xl7 shoot really good. the howas shoot really good.the stevens 200 shoot really good.no complaints about the tikkas either. its mostly personal preference and what feels good in your hands. the model 70s are just flat out shooters but prolly out of your price range, you may look at the t/c venture they shoot really good, 1 moa out of box

No doubt some of each brand have slipped out of the factory (by mistake) that would shoot a decent group but your odds go way up of having a good one with Tikka and Savage and likely the weatherby / howa.  The remmington guns can be made to shoot very well but they dont always start there. Your odds go up with the heavy barrel guns being shooters as well but the lightweight Tikka will run with the best of heavy barrel guns and the extractor is as good as you can get.

I really like my Vanguard and heck with the close outs you could get one with a vortex or burris and buy ammo too.

I have a Tikka T3 SS with synthetic stock. Just like everybody says light, accurate, the smoothest action you can find and trigger is crisp and adjustable. I bought another one used about a year ago in 300WSM. I would have a hard time buying anything else. There are many good choices it comes down to personal preference.
