    What are you wanting to use it for? That would have a big impact on my answer....

    How about a CZ 527 rebarreled to 6.5 Grendel? Thats just me though.....probably too Fudd for many.

    A few I'd suggest for your requirements and price range -
    Ruger Gunsight Scout
    Savage 10 Series
    An AR chambered in 308/ 7.62
    Mossberg MVP in 308

    You could always find a reasonable, used Remington 700, drop it into a aftermarket stock and spend the remainder on a nice scope. Good optics cost a lot, more than your rifle.

    The New Ruger SR-762 would fit the bill, except for the price... $2,000

    Maybe a Mosin? Cheap, Cheap Ammo, Good deer rifle, OK for target shooting...

    Nawwwww!! Get the 762!

    Remington R25. I think MSRP is about $1600. You'd still need a scope though
