I am looking into purchasing a scout rifle, either the Ruger Gunsite Scout or the Steyr Scout in .308. I like the concept of a handy, light(er) rifle for woodland stalking. My Sako 85 with all the crap on it weighs nearly 10lbs, too heavy, unwieldy and unbalanced. I've come to realise manufacturers quoted weight figures for their rifles seem to be universally exaggerated. Any thoughts welcome, especially if you own, or have owned, either of these rifles.
