Hey guys,

I am thinking about getting a .308 for next year. I already have a great rifle for shots within 300 yards. What I am looking for is a practical .308 that can reasonably stretch out to 500-700 yards when I need it to.

I have been mostly looking at Savage and was wondering what kind of .308 would be the best suited for this task? I don't mind getting a heavy barreled gun but obviously I don't want a super tactical rifle that is better suited for Afghanistan rather than the deer stand.

I am trying to find a balance between accuracy, weight, and $$$. Any help from experienced .308 shooters would be greatly appreciated.
