I'd go with the ADL and the laminated stock that they sell at Wally World. $518.00 last time I checked, and they usually stock 270 and 30/06. It has the advantages of a stable stock in wet weather, and it doesn't have a floorplate to come unlatched and dump your ammo at your feet if it gets bumped wrong. Add a Redfield 3x9 or Burris Fullfield II in Weaver mounts (also at WM) and you're good to go. The '06 has the advantage over the 308 in that it shoots heavier bullets, the brass is cheaper to buy to reload, and it has a 100+ year record of doing the job all the time.
