Re: Who likes a good Scout Rifle?

I have three of the Styer Scouts in .243, .308 and .375 Steyr. The .243 wears a conventional scope but the others the Leupy 2.5x. they are excellent, quick and accurate rifles out to 300 yards. A lot of fun to shoot.

Mine's 223, but I'd like to get a 6.5, 6.8, or 30 cal someday.

I figure .308's gotta be the bomb for hogs in hot pursuit.

Mines called a model 94. Was great when my eyes still worked for iron sights. I see a
red dot in it's future if I ever need it again. Never saw a reason to switch to a bolt
gun in close.

721 Remington, Canjar single set trigger, Brown Precision Kevlar, Shilen barrel @ 22", 2x Leupold, 30-06. A bit longer and heavier than specs, but close enough to validate the concept for me. Very usable and practical, and where's the fun in that! LOL. At any rate I moved on, currently for that style of use A pre-64 model 70 Featherweight, Brown Kevlar stock, 30-06, with a more conventional 2.5-8x Leupold. Not to quibble with the Colonel, but I do believe most of us pick up a few more yards with a little more optic.

I'm just not much of an AR guy. I suppose I could just scope my cheap old Bushmaster, but then I wouldn't have a good reason to buy a new rig. Plus they tend to be a bit more spendy in .308 or bigger, not to mention heavier to pack. I'd like a rig in .308 or bigger (prefferably 300wsm, as I already load for it) with the hopes that I finally draw a moose tag around here.

I hadn't though about the GSR as a hog gun, but I bet your right on that. You may have just sealed the deal for me. I've got inlaws in Dallas that I'm hoping to do some hog hunting with soon. Now I've got all the excuses I need to buy a scout gun... But the GSR, or something better?...

+1 on that. My eyesight isn't all that great, and I hate wearing glasses in the field. Plus, why not have a Scout that reaches out there a bit further while still being short and handling quick and easy. Best of both worlds.
