    Default Scout Rifle Thread

    I've been a big fan of Jeff Coopers for years and always wanted some type of Scout Rifle. The closest I had was a Scout length M14, but its too heavy to be a true Scout. Recently I finally purchased a Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle. I haven't even had a chance to fire it yet, but I anticipate good things.

    As far as I can tell there is no thread dedicated to Scout Rifles. So post your pictures and/or impressions here. Steyr, Savage, Ruger, homemade, etc. -- all are welcome. Lets see them and hear about them.

    Here is the first quick shot of mine with my Scout length M14 and a fully extended AR for reference.

    Just picked up a GSR. So far so good. Mine will not stabilize 150 grain bullets. It really likes 168 grain match though.

    BlackJack, what is the availability of .308 like in Alaska, say compared to .30-06?

    Not too big of a deal. Lots of guys with AR10s. Biggest problem is price. Cheapest stuff I found this week was 150 ball at $39 per 50. Gonna start rolling my own.

    Here's mine!

    There's not much "scouting" going on in the pic though - mostly lounging, snoozing and snacking. I guess it's more like my Ruger Hanging-Out-Waiting-To-Get Lucky rifle

    I would prefer the bolt action or the m14 style over the M4 styled one, but I have not shot either of the non-bolt action rifles in a long time so they may be better than what im thinking.
