    Yep, the LTR is a very good rifle, and the most accurate of the remingon production rifles (not including 40x's).

    The compact tactical rifle is what I'm addressing with the SC2 also.

    Who said I did!! :wink: just kidding.

    In reality, it comes from the custom shop as well, it is certainly not considered mass produced.

    I've spent a lot of time with other guys who have the Steyr Scouts and I'm yet to see one that has set their rifle up with the Cooper style forward scope.

    As for the Steyr rifle in general mine is a Tactical Elite 223 but it suffers from the same issues as all the 308s. The bolt action is hopeless when dry (catches and wears badly because it's alloy) and if you get an early production rifle you'll have all the high bolt lift force and other little eccentricities.

    I love my rifle but I can't help standing back and wondering what I would do if I had the choice again. My Sako 75 is a better made rifle in my opinion and it cost half as much - despite being a Type V action 300WinMag. Plus I've learnt to enjoy the effect a 300Win Mag has on cats!

    If you want a "scout" rifle, I would go with a lever-action Winchester or Marlin. Marlin is probably the better rifle in respect to ergonomics, but the Winchester 94 is still on of the best after 110 years. My dad has a Win. 94 and its prolly much handier than ANY bolt gun.

    If you want something that will shoot farther, I would get a good Mauser action and start from scratch.
