    I've put about 60 rounds through a friends Scout in 376 Steyr . It's a very handy , powerful and accurate rifle but , in 376 , is a bit of a nuclear facial lol . I imagine one in 308 W would be a lot more user friendly and , to be honest , fully capable for most game . It would make a great boar rifle .
    Are you planning on scoping it ?

    I dont plan on scoping it unless its something like a red dot sight. The forest around here is very dense.
    I was interested in it because it looks to be relatively shorter than my ZKK600 in .270win. The one I am looking at is in 308W. second hand.
    is 1500Eur. a good price?


    The reason I asked the original question was that its such an ugly odd looking rifle. and very light weight. I know this influences recoil, not being weird looking but being lightweight.

    Im probably missing something obvious but why is it better for real world use than any other magazine fed bolt action scoped rifle? Also if the concept is so good, why are there so few scout type rifles around?

    Hey there, how is it with recoil? what cal do you have? Im just hesitant that if its too light a rifle I may not like the recoil fo shooting a heavier round than I am used to.
    I dont have the opportunity to shoot it before I buy it.
