bolt or auto? CAL. ? price range?

which is better bolt or auto? i think 308 would be a good cal. and would like to keep it less than $1500 for the rifle. thanks

308 is a great CAL.

Well @ $1500 it will be a bolt gun as a auto will be $2500 - $3000 in .308

Both Remington and Savage have rifles in that price range

Savage any thing in the "10" lin up would be good. I like this one but it's about $1700 and real heavy about 16lb

You will also need a good scope in the 5x22 x50 range. Night force NSX or Leupold M4are great scopes and you will pay about the same for eather one about $1800 and rings will be about $200

Both remington and savage are good guns. I own a heavy barrel in .308 of each. The savage 10fp will be a little cheaper but the remington 700 will have more aftermarket support. Some people will argue that the remington has better extraction than the savage and I think they are right. You don't have to go all out on a rifle. A stock savage 10fp or a remington 700 sps varmint will both shoot sub MOA with good match ammo. Glass is a whole other discussion. A fixed 10x bushnell elite 3200 ($200) would be dependable and rugged starting scope and sky's the limit after that.

There's a nice thread over at the California Precision Rifle Club website addressing your question. It focuses on looking at the entire set-up. At the end, the author has some listed packages, two are in your price range. Plus there's a spreadsheet that you can play with.

Remington 700 5R is a good start! Its not amazingly expensive and as a starter is going to be much more accurate than you. As you progrerss and get more comfortable it can grow with you with small changes. Whatever you swap out you can sell and can use that to fund the next purchase. Remington 5R with a Vortex PST in mil/mil is a nice start.
