In my opinion if you want a semi auto try to find a Browning BAR. However, if you want a bolt action I'd strongly consider the Savage Model 10 or Model 110 with the accu trigger. I'm not sure which the 308 is. The Marlin XS7 would also be a good choice as would the Stevens 200. The Stevens 200 is basically a Model 10 Savage only without the accu trigger which I prefer.
