Take a look at Savage Model 110 or Model 10; .223, 22-250, .243.

I have a Model 10 in .223 that is very accurate with a 22" barrel and 1:9 twist. It's also not to heavy, even with its wood stock.

It would be a good idea to research ballistics on various calibers/ammo before making a decision on caliber, since some will do better at longer ranges than others.

There are some real nice variable power scopes from Leupold, Athlon, and others that will fit your budget. I have 4.5-14 Leupold VX3 that is crisp, and distortion-free. Don't forget to add scope mounts and rings into your budget.
