Bolt Actions
 
I am lookin into getting a new bolt action rifle for the range looking at FHN, Remington among others in .308 caliber what makes a quality bolt action rifle?

.308
 
Just about all the currently produced rifles will do the job for you. My own personal favorite is browning a-bolt but remington, savage ,tikka, sako, cz,kimber,as well as a host of others are all well made rifles.

I agree. Look through all the major manufacturers catalogs and pick the one you think is fitted to your situation. The last rifle I picked up was a Remington700 in 7mm rem mag. Shoots 3/4" groups with factory ammo. I also have a 700 in 270Win. and with handloads it shoots 1/2" groups using Remington core-lok bullets(yes,I handload these). I have buddies that all get similiar performance out of their rifles( a savage,a browning,two Remingtons and a Winchester).

I`ve owned most of the major barnd of rifles on the market and fired the rest. I have several custom rifles built on Mil. actions as well. They all work. I would recomand that you check your area for a good used rifle, they will be alot cheaper and I don`t know anyone that has shot-out a .308.

I friend has one that is a tack driver. I can't remember which model it is, but it is pretty sweet. He has the trigger turned down to 1.5# on it. He has a Harris bipod and some big ass 6-20x50mm scope on it. It came with a really crappy finish though. Most of the phosphate coating has worn off of it already.

I would have it dura coated. That stuff is tuff enough to last in the sandbox with the military. Plus it comes in some rather cool colors.

He's looking at getting a Krieger stainless for it. The receiver is fine, but the barrel looks like ass.

.308 rifle
 
When I have plans to rebarrel,I look for used rifles. If I have no intention to rebarrel however,I'll opt for a new rifle due to the fact of me knowing it'll be broke in correctly.
