    I am looking at buying a new 308 bolt action rifle. I want something in a synthetic stock or an A or AA grade wood stock with stainless steel barrel. Using it for hunting and target shooting(just for fun) around 200-300m. I am just after suggestion on which brand and model to buy, I am looking at spending between $800 - $1500.

    Thanks for your time and opinion’

    A Howa HB Varminter would fit the bill. You could also buy their barreled action and buy a stock yourself.

    What he said.

    or weatherby vanguard pred (great deals on these things with awesome accuracy guarantee)

    Or you could get a used rem 700 LTR DM and upgrade from there...

    Just a few ideas. HAVE FUN!:D

    x2. on the x-bolt. Ive ultimately decided to get the Stainless stalker x-bolt. Planned on getting the Special hunter, but hunting hogs in the swamp with my buddies has made up my mind, that a wooden stock and a blued barrell will just not work for me.

    I would probably recommed Savage, Hawa, Remington. So many bolts?

    If you want a semi-auto I would look:
    1 a used Ruger model 44.
    2 Remington model 7400 series, 74, 740, 742.
    3 Browning Bar magnum
    4 Ruger 99/44 Deerfield
    5 Benelli R1 (only 30-06)

    Bud's Gun Shop has a new Savage 10F/P HS Precision .308 for $660 delivered. That leaves room for a decent scope and maybe a little for some ammo. They also have the Remington VLS .308 in a bedded laminate stock for $767 delivered.

    I would say a Rem. 700 SPS would fit the bill just fine. Mine shoots .5 moa with out much problem. I have shot one group .5 at around 200 yards. Lucky i guess. But the action cant be beat for the price and the upgrade ability is unbeatable.
