    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.

    Hickok45 is a class act.

    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.

    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.
