    Accurate .308

    I am in the market for an accurate .308 that holds at least 5 rounds. Semi-auto is preferred but bolt action would be alright too if I can't find a semi-auto I like. I have no idea where to start so I was wondering if I could get some ideas of what is out there, what I could expect to pay for it, and the accuracy I could expect out of the gun. I am looking for a sniper style rifle more than an assault rifle.

    Armalite makes an AR10 match rifle that can probably shoot better than you,I have an AR10 that can shoot 1" groups at 100 yards,as long as the right person pulls the trigger,and I am no longer capable of tight groups due to Injuries.The Ar10 has 10 and 20 round magazines

    You could look into the Springfield M1A Match rifles. I have a standard M1A and it is an excellent shooter; I'm sure the glass-beaded, stainless-barreled match models are even better.

    The M1a is good enough for the a lot of our best snipers in the sandy parts of the world...Im sure it would work for you. In a bolt gun I would look to a Remington 700 or Winchester Model 70.

    I would add Savage to the accurate bolt action list.

    This is really the question. What is your price range? Most deer rifles can reach out to 400 yds + with plenty of accuracy. You don't really need to spend 1k or more to get an accurate rifle.

    My point is this: Tell us how much you want to spend on a rifle and scope together and we'll point you in the right direction. Without a price range none of our advice is really worth anything to you.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    A fat barreled Remington Model 700 in .308 is hard to beat.

    Remington 700 Varmint Rifles at Impact Guns Home

    A friend of mine has a Remington Model 700 Varmint Special .308 from the early 1970s that is amazingly accurate. A good Varmint Special could be found on GunBroker or elsewhere.

    Remington SPS Tactical / Millett LRS-1
    Accurate ( .7" with Win. 150gr soft point ). Haven't had time to try the reloads.
    Cost effective: rifle 600, scope 435, bi-pod 90

    For a bonafide sniper rifle, check out this model:
    The Remington Model 700 Stainless Special 5R Milspec

    They only make them in small runs. My shooting buddy paid around $1100 for his, and the Nightforce 3.5-15x56 scope was an additional $1500. Quite a rifle.
