If we are talking general field work, the Howas offer some deals, and the CZ 527 223 Synthetic is superb VFM, but without breaking the bank the T3 is seriously worth a look, (in honesty I'm not the biggest fan of the T3 Lite stock, balance all round is better with the Hunter stock) even though I like LIGHT rifles for the field. 

 

You just need to decide on wood/synthetic and Varmint or light barrel!
