You can get alot of rifle for that budget. There is alot of good advice
above. I will also add my caution in purchasing any New Remington
product. Winchester Model 70 would be worth a look at also.
When you say you are looking at a .308 I assume you mean a .308
Winchester cartridge? Since many of us reload almost all .30 caliber
cartridges shoot .308 bullets, there are always exceptions such as
the .303 British.
For scopes don't go cheap, Leupold or Nikon. I have both the Nikon
Buckmaster scopes are every bit as good as a Leupold.
Buy the way what are you planning on hunting?
Looking at a .270 or 7mm cartridge might be a better choice.
