I think you need to figure out if you want a carry gun or a dedicated bench gun. You aren't lugging a Remington Police around the deer woods up mountains and down for a week long hunting trip. If you want a semi auto, they are more complex and thus heavier than a comparible bolt rifle. If you don't particularly need blistering rapid fire and 4 or 5 rounds in the magazine are enough, a good Ruger, Remington, Marlin, Savage, Howa, Kimber etc will serve you well for a long time. Lighter contour barrels will heat up faster than a bul barrel but keep in mind if you are hunting and not planning to shoot from a bipod where weight is a plus, even a sporter barrel can be very accurate in 308.
