I’m still looking for the ideal lever action. No gun purchases this year until we get past this latest chapter with cancer, but it’s fun looking.
I’m still liking some of the Browning offerings, especially the take-downs.

Bolt-action in 7mm-08
Second choice would be a lever-action in 30-30
Likely worth more than my entire estate at the moment, or ever for that matter.
Henry is now offering one with the traditional tube together with a loading gate.
Is a full auto considered a non-semi rifle
If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.
I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either
For me, it'd be a Savage 10. They've plenty of aftermarket support, inexpensive, and reliable. Barrel changes are a snap, and Numrich Arms usually has some.
I really like my Browning BLR in .308 It handles well for me.
It has iron sights, but with a scope it would be a great long range rifle.
It is a beautiful hunk of hardwood and blue steel.

I’m glad to see the 99 get a recommend on the previous page. One of those in 308 would be exactly what the OP needs.

[drift] so does anyone know what the triangle shaped doo-dads with the wooden handles are near the locking mechanisim?
I realize that is a H&H double rifle, I'm curious as to what all the thingys are in the box.

My first and still my favorite:
Browning semi-auto .22.
I’ll second the recommendation for a 527 in 7.62x39 or 300 BO.
|To Do What is |
Right and Just
Remington 7600 in 308. Or have it rebarreled to 338 federal. Not the most common but not oddball either. About the perfect brush gun that's not semi in my opinion.
If I recall correctly, there was an aftermarket part to convert the cross bolt safety to lefty instead of righty. But not 100 percent.
Since probably 98% of my rifles aren't semi auto, this is tough. Maybe a Ruger #1. Not real sure on caliber.
Sliced bread, the greatest thing since the 1911.

I asked myself the same question not long ago.
I now have a Weatherby Mark V in 30/06 in my gun safe with a 2-10 powered scope to fill that void.
You can do about anything with the 30/06, all depends on your ammo choice.
I would probably go with the A3 for the ease of use with the rear sight. Reliable, robust, and accurate rifles. Besides, anywhere you go you can ,more often than not, find a box of 30-06.
If I was limited to one rifle it would be a 308 version of an AR which I own.
