My budget...well I donít want to cheap out on a set-up but I donít want to break the bank either. I was looking at a Winchester model 70 featherweight with a Nikon 4-16x42. That set-up will run me around $1300. Iím iffy about the wooden stock in bad weather but I donít really like the look and feel of a synthetic stock.

The mod 70 featherweight you mentioned is definitely a worthy rifle but if you're looking for other options and are worried about the "weather" check out the Remington 700 CDL in a stainless barrel.

I have a Remington LTR with a 20" fluted bull barrel in .308 that I absolutely love. It's my main deer hunting rifle and has been since my wife gifted it to me as our wedding present 12 years ago.

It's this:

I own several model 70s so I’m partial to them. I wouldn’t let wood scare you off, it’s plenty durable. If you’re out in the rain getting it wet, just wipe the water off before you put it in the cabinet. Same way you’d care for a plastic stock. But if that’s a concern you can’t get over, then check out the model 70 extreme weather

Get any good bolt action rifle for about $450 to $550 or if you want to go AR-10 you can buy one from PSA for $600 to 700.
308 WIN may be one of the best all around caliber's for anything that walks in Texas or the mountain west.

I'm going to say Tikka as well. Synthetic stock.
OR....
Look into Bergara. Have never shot one, just a thought.

Scope; Lots of choices. I like the BDC reticles so that I don't have to make any dial adjustments anywhere within hunting distance. I especially like a scope with a bdc reticle that also has an app on my phone that compares all sorts of data (zeroed distance, bullet, temp, elevation, etc). I have a Nikon Prostaff BDC on a .223, and a Swaro Z3 on a 6.5 cm, each have an app.

I have the same one I bought used 15 years ago and it still shoots lights out with cheap corlokt ammo. I also shortend mine to a smidge over 16" and threaded for a can.

That will be a great set up! Savage models 16 11 or 10, Browning xbolt, Tikka T3, Winchester 70s. I heave read lots of good things about the bergara and Kimber rifles as well. I hate to say it but I am still pretty leery of the Remington 700s and all the quality control issues and recalls they have had. Anymore these days you can go cheaper on the rifle and more expensive on the glass. Sounds like you are going with a prostaff 7 or monarch 3 line of Nikon which would be great. The bigger the tube and objective the more light transmission you get.
Scopes the level of Nikons you are looking at, Vortex vipers, leupold VX3, Sightron STac all are great. I would not buy an optic unless it was made in USA, Japan, European Counties, or lowest Philipines stay away from Chinese stuff. If your mainly going to be sitting in a blind over a feeder or food plot a few hundred dollar 3-9x40 and a $400 rifle will work great and spending $700 total would work fine. I have spent some time with the lower end ruger American, Remington 783, savage axis and they are all accurate and have even shown to by 1000 capable rifles. Personally I would not worry about the weather on the stock as much as I would about all the dinks an dents and scratches that will show up on it.
If you are going to be out and about on spot and stalk hunts the one you are looking at or a tikka T3, savage 11 or 10, browning xbolt, all have some goo lighter weight models and some come with a threaded muzzle and a muzzle brake. I like to shoot as much as I can so I am all for having muzzle brakes so I don't bruise my shoulder and to stay on target when shooting longer ranges.

.308 is good for anything in North America and recoil is minimal....my 8 & 12 yo moved up to it this year. Best round ever made.

All 4 of my sons as well as myself shoot .308's. All are older Remington 700's and XP-100's. The round is excellent from shorter barrels as our Specialty pistols are 13" and the rifles 17-19". So many options for reloading as well as countless factory loads to pick from. Will kill anything in North America just fine and there will always be an ample supply of ammunition.
Cant go wrong as far as I'm concerned with a quality bolt action in .308 Win.

Remington SPS Tactical 16” (Google Remington 85538) with 2.5-10x Vortex Viper HS. Entire setup will run you about $1000. Some complain about the Hogue stock but I kinda like mine. Shooting 168 grain Hornady BTHP it can keep the entire magazine in a 8” pie plate at 500 yards with the help of a Caldwell lead sled. Or......just buy the Larue rifle kit for about $500 more and you will have the most awesome rifle at your lease.

I got a rem 700 adl in 308
I have a buddy that swears by his that handloads and shoots a lot. He convinced me to snag a 308 so we could cook some stuff up and compete a little bit on the range.
I put a good burris 4x14 I had on it, replaced the stock with a Grayboe and slapped a BDL conversion kit in the bottom (bottom metal).
cant get the hot 125 grs to group great but off the shelf 150s shoot just fine.
solid caliber with a wide range of options when it comes to ammo

I also have a win featherweight and if thats the direction youre looking you wont be disappointed. I think its the best action (besides the original) and looks/feels great. Id go that direction and be really proud of the purchase.

I have a 308 I love. It's is pretty much custom, but didn't come with the custom price tag. I went online to E.R Shaw. They are a well know barrel maker, who has made factory barrels for a number of manufactures. Most people don't know, but they also make full "custom" rifles. Their guns start at around $800 and go up depending on what you add to it. I got mine in lefty, and it's the best shooting gun I own. US made in Bridgeville PA. May be an option for you.

Ok so here is some comparisons of different price level rifles with pics of rifles and groups at distance all shooting factory ammo. The Camo spray paint job is a $300 Remington 783 with a $380 Sightron Stac 3-16x42 chambered in 308 and has been glass bedded Federal 175gr SMK shooting .8 MOA at 500yds 1.9 MOA at 1000yds. The rifle laying across the recliners is a $750 Rem 700 LR in 7mm mag with a $520 Vortex intrepid 4.5-22x50 and I bedded the recoil lug in it Remington 150gr AccuTip shooting .9 MOA at 500yds. The one on the tailgate of the pickup is a $1100 Savage 12 LRP chambered in 6.5 creedmoor topped with a $900 Sightron SIII LR 8-32x56 and I bedded the recoil lug and swapped out the bolt head on it Hornady 140gr ELDM shootin .4 moa at 500yds, .8 MOA at 1200 yds and 1.8 MOA at 1760yds(mile).

I don't have a pic of the rifle but here is some groups out of a Savage 12 FV cabelas exclusive chambered in 308 that my BIL got for CHEAP on sale with a rebate ended up being $280 or so and a $140 Primary Arms 4-16X44 scope. Shooting the best with 180gr Federal Fusion .65 MOA at 500 yds on the plate and the paper target was testing different factory loads at 100yds before I bedded the lug in it.

If you reload, I suggest a getting a Remington 700 SPS Tactical with a 1 in 10" twist. It's capable of shooting clover leafs with a 178gr Hornady ELDX bullet over Varget.

If you want to further improve your results, replace the stock and drop in a Timney trigger.

I've got a Rem 700 SPS Tactical in .308 sitting in a fully bedded Manners MCS-T2 with a Vortex scope. I picked up the stock from the Manners ready to ship section for about half the cost of a new one. I plan on dropping in a new trigger soon. So far i'm all in for around 2K. Don't have any pictures of groups, but it shoots like a dream.

I’ve been contemplating on letting my Win 70 CRF 308 Classic Featherweight go with 10rnds shot shot through it. It’s a 95-96 model with the red stock pad. I’d give it a 95% for a small smudge on the stock and about an 1/8” scratch right beside the rear scope base. It’s in excellent shape. Scope rings and scope don’t go with it unless you just have to have it, but the price doesn’t reflect the scope rings and scope. I’ve mounted it, just never shot it and honestly don’t know what to ask for it.
I bought it from a buddy that is a Win 70 snob and he bought as new old stock from gunbroker (since he’s purchased several new old stock rifles) because of the 308/Featherweight configuration which he says was hard to find.

Any ideas on where to start the price? All I know is I’ll be taking a loss on it.

Iíve mounted it, just never shot it and honestly donít know what to ask for it.
I bought it from a buddy that is a Win 70 snob and he bought as new old stock from gunbroker (since heís purchased several new old stock rifles) because of the 308/Featherweight configuration which he says was hard to find.

Any ideas on where to start the price? All I know is Iíll be taking a loss on it.


Beautiful gun. I have the same in 270 and itís by far my favorite rifle.

Thanks you everybody for all the great information. That featherweight is beautiful. Also looking at tikka t3 lite. Weight does matter as Iím trying to get in on an elk hunt in the future.

Here is a Tikka T3x 308 that I cut 2.5" off (20" barrel). Weighs just under 7# scoped
