So Im turning 18 and I am starting to look at a new rifle that I could buy for myself instead of using my fathers. I want something that will last a while and stay accurate. I don't want to spend much over $500 but quality isn't cheap. Any ideas would be great!

depends on whether that is $500 for just a rifle or a rifle and scope. lot of good options for just a rifle for $500, but if it's for a rifle and scope, your options are going to be a bit more limited for NIB. but you could always shop the gun stores and pawn shops for a good deal on a used rifle, and it might even have a scope already on it.
Savage axis combo deals are worth the money especially with that tight of a budget. My one suggestion to you is stay far away from the Remington 770, the 700 is a fine rifle though, and I've heard good things about their newer model that's replaced the 770, name slips my mind. And look at used, a lot of rifles out there to be had at good prices.
