I want to like Scout rifles...I just don't see what the do that a good 308 AR carbine won't, unless they are significantly lighter.  Maybe scare the sheep less?

Sorry, I'm just not a bolt guy. Maybe if I had a use for one, but my AR's can do all I need to do.

In a carbine I'd agree. In a rifle its a different story. If you are looking for serious long rang accuracy, a bolt is the way to go. Most of us however, aren't. That leaves just the simplicity of the bolt, coupled with easy maintainence and its "family friendly" image to argue against say an AR-10. Given that, I'll take the semi, as long as I can get a four round mag so I can hunt with it.

SWEET!!!

Just saw it on an Email from Ruger. I think a front sight/flash suppressor more like the M14 would be nice, but the Mini14 sight/suppressor looks good too.
