    Well i picked up a savage scout in 308 from another member here. I was worryed about it having the mag seating issue i have herd about, but after a few trys i concluded that the issue was only operator error. The mag fells like the 10th round is going to make it shadder.Feeding the first round is a trick, but the other 9 i had no problem with.
    The accue stock is unneeded if you shoot the iron sights and the cheek rizer is really uncomfortable also. Its a Realy solid build tho and feels like you could beat of a grizzly bear with it. Would be nice if they came with a laminate stock like the ruger scout but what ever.
    Over all tho i would recomend this rifle. Put some white paint on the front sight, load her up, and jack some rounds in her. Would be a great hunting rifle for the brush or as a tracking/hiking gun. But would,be nice if they came in a better big bore caliber the 450 bushmaster Just dosnt pencil out for a bolt gun imo.

    rebarrel it to a .358 win, that would make a great rifle for hunting the west side.
