Niiiice! Is that the Mossberg MVP?
I'm torn between this one and the ruger.
Both solid choices. Can't go wrong either way.
I knew better than to check this thread again... It's gonna end up costing me!
Get one. You know you want to... Think of how much fun you'll have.
And a GR pack. Doesnt get much better.
My GSR was lonely so I got it alittle friend to keep it company
Time to swap out ammo now that deer season is over...
Finally got around to dialing in the scope on my GSR (the shots to the left of the knot are from neighbor's 22mag)
The new "Pack Rack" on my 4 wheeler worked well as an improvised bench rest.
BTW did I mention that it's loud
I’m a big fan of the Scout Rifle Platform.
Here is a Ruger Frontier set up as a pseudo scout, 7mm-.08
@Patrick Rollins , come on, you'll need one to be on the Expat Scout Rifle Squad. We meet once a month to cook outdoors, shoot, and discuss economic theory.
Finally completed my ruger .308 scout ~3 years after I got the rifle, fixed 2.5 Leupold, warne quick detach rings, and as of today a 1 inch oil tanned leather rhodesian sling from Andy's leather off his blem section (with no noticeable blems!). My main magazine is a 5 round magpul and I have the two polymer ruger 10 rounders as back up, but eventually I'd love to get two more magpul 10 round mags.
While I love this rifle and the universal availability of .308, I am seriously considering getting a poorly sporterized swedish m96/38 mauser I have chopped and recrowned to 19 or 20 inches and adding a reciver peep sight and another rhodesian sling. I have just come to really like the simplicity of a fixed mags. Plus I think I could make a much lighter and sleeker gun out of the old swede mauser.
I need opinions:
I have a chance to pick up a gunsite scout rifle in 300 BO for $700.
Worth it in 300?
I know precious little about the blackout cartridge.
Guess I should add, this would be a general purpose rifle, max range around here against deer or coyote is 200, maybe 300 yards at best for me.
I would try to find one in .308 if I were you. 300 Blackout is just a .223 case necked up to .30 cal. I’ve had a couple and and even though I’m sure it would be capable of killing a deer at those ranges it seems to me it’s only really useful as a subsonic suppressed Round
I've spent some time comparing 308 to 300 ballistics, then comparing price per round, and I was wondering what I was missing.
The only thing I can gather is that if you're shooting suppressed at a hundred or less it's a good round.
Looks like my 30-30 fills the bill still yet for the 30 cal category.
