ThreeJsDad, a stock aeg will out perform a stock marker by about 3x. This includes distance and accuracy. I would recommend spring powered and not hpa if you are looking to mimick the "accuracy and distance" of a sniper rifle. But please keep in mind that even fully upgraded the extra distance is about 50-75ft, you will not be making 300ft shots. A solid bolt action rifle will cost you about $300, but upgrades will cost you another $500-800 alone. Plus don't forget you will need a decent scope which will run you another few hundred. The brands you should look at for a spring sniper rifle are TM and CA thats it. Don't get a clone as you will be very disapointed with performance.
If you have any other questions please ask away.
