    That is most certainly a beautiful rifle Greg Bell. Those Steyr Scouts are classics, that are worth every penny. I do not own one, sure wish I did, but a shooting buddy of mine does. I ran a few rounds through his gun, and really was impressed at the quality "feel" of the gun.

    I own several bolt guns, and although they shoot well for me, none of them have the feel that his Steyr has. Ruger and others have done their best to replicate the Steyr, and even though they are fine rifles in their own right, they are not a Steyr.
    Good night Chesty...wherever you are.

    I called steyr about the thread adapter not fitting in they sent me a new one in the mail with a return sticker for the old one —the new one fit perfectly.

    Unfortunately I noticed after zeroing the scope and getting the eye relief set correctly the low Talley rings just barely...I mean barely would not clear the bolt handle. So I am sending them back for mediums. Damn!

    Got my medium Tally rings on: perfect. Really enjoying this rifle. Next week: subsonic 308 fun.

    That Steyr Scout just looks weird with a traditionally mounted scope.

    Agreed. But it improves the balance and honestly, a good 4x with generous eye relief is just a little more versatile in my opinion.

    A Steyr Scout in 6.5mm Creedmoor has been announced, might be a nice addition to the line.

    It may look "weird" but having experience with both, I will take a traditionally mounted scope every time. The new brown Steyr looks awesome!

    The same concept of an all around "practical rifle" is what I recently did the final fine tuning on my daughter's rifle. Three scopes later, (Leupolds are fine if you aren't twisting turrets) we have opted for a fixed 6X SWFA MIL/MIL on her 20" T3 .308 tikka. She LOVES it.

    The handiness of a light, short bolt gun, appropriately scoped is something that cannot be understated in my opinion after having used one in the field for quite a good period of time. I have used mine on everything for Jackrabbits to elk, and been very satisfied.

    The Steyr should make a great all around gun with the 4x Leupod on it.
