I'd look into the Ruger American and then spend the rest of the cash on ammo so he can practice with it. I've not fired an American yet but they are getting good reviews and I have absolute confidence in Ruger and their customer service in the event of a problem. As stated a heavy barreled rifle probably will not make the ultimate hunting rifle. Both .308 Win and .30-06 are great cartridges and if he gets into reloading there is almost no job they are capable of handling (even though they may not be ideal for certain jobs).
