the Marlin XS7 in 308 if wanting a sporter type, or the XS7VH in 308 if weight isn't an issue. both are very accurate, good fit and finish, adjustable triggers and priced very decently. i have the XS7VH in 308, and it is very, very accurate! it was my third X7 rifle bought and won't be the last. i have shot a few of the Savage Axis rifles in different calibers, but not in 308, but they too would be a good choice if on a budget. the Mossberg ATR100 in 308 could also be another good choice. i had an ATR100 in 30-06, very accurate with handloads.
