I've had Ruger Scout for a couple of years now, and the more I shoot it, the more I like it. I originally set it up with the Burris 2.75x fixed power scout scope, which was pretty good. But then Burris came out with a 2-7x variable scout scope, and I switched to that for the option of a little more magnification. Couldn't be happier with that set up. Took two deer in Texas with it last fall, and am considering taking it to South Africa for plains game in a couple of years (once I get the cash saved up).

I had one and rebarreled to 338 FED what a great handy ugly duck. However my old buddy asked me about a gazillion times a week to sell it to him. So to shut him up I sold it. Bought a 550FS in 9.3x62 or I would be looking to build another 338 FED scout rifle.

Sold a Blaser scope mount to him. He was a pleasure to do business with.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
