    Love those Ghost Ring sights & the big mag. Looks like the worlds only Bolt-Action Assault Rifle.

    I've never seen a bolt action that throws the brass farther than an autoloader.

    Hickok has made a name for himself doing these reviews. He is one of the extremely few I care to listen to.

    I've been looking at that rifle, with the light weight and short barrel it would be a good gun for hunting elk in heavy timber. I'd want to put some bright optics on it though.

    It's nice to see a company implementing a concept that the late, great Col. Jeff Cooper has been lamenting for many years now.

    I recall Styer or some other company doing something with a Scout rifle configuration many years ago, but I assume Ruger is the first to go "mainstream" and do it at an affordable price point as well.

    I love watching Hickock's videos. But you can tell he's a pistolero not a rifleman. Someone who knows how to make a bolt gun sing would never take it off their shoulder to cycle the action. And as far as how far a bolt gun throws brass--that's strictly a function of how hard the shooter retracts the bolt.

    Agreed. He hit his first shot, and then missed the next three.

    I thought Savage had a Scout rifle?

    Edited to add... Why would you want a muzzle brake on a Scout rifle? I thought the whole idea was a compact package. Am I missing something?

    Don't get me wrong - I've got a 6mm Ruger 77 - old style with the tang safety and barrel band front sight. Been shooting it for a long time.

    I wish Ruger would mill the receiver to take M-14 stripper clips. You can throw a lot of lead from a bolt action rifle in a relatively short period of time with them. The SMLE being perhaps the best example.
     
  10. Yeah, he sucks with a rifle. :upeyes:

    I'll say it once, I'll say it again... Hickok45 for President!

    I've started listening to his radio shows. Call me crazy, I started watching his videos for the shooting. Now, I like listening to him and want less shooting.

    I enjoy watching his videos, he is not narcissistic like some of the other guys.

    Would be thrilled if Ruger would produce a left-handed bolt-action rifle as a option for all of the calibers they currently chamber. If available, I'd buy one in .308 Winchester, etc.
