Vette, you might also take a look at the Rem 700 Mil spec 5R, though it has a 24" heavy barrel. I am having two of my Mil specs a .308 and the .223 bedded today and will also install a Jewell trigger in the .308.
I have had good luck with the new X-Mark Pro triggers on the .223 and the .300 Win Mag, but the .308 would just not adjust as light as I wanted. It can't be adjusted any more than Remington provided you with. They epoxy the internal adjustments so it renders it useless.
These are extremely accurate rifles right out of the box especially with good glass. My .308 wears a Nightforce NXS 3.5-15X50 zero stop
