Purchased new rifle

I've been looking for a new deer rifle and also wanted to find something to remember my dad with who passed away 13 October. After looking around for a couple weeks, I came across this and had to have it. It's the Ruger Gunsite Scout chambered in .308 and its really nice. A little pricey but I really like it.

Oh baby that's nice. Love those stocks.

How does it shoot? I'm a ruger guy myself thanks to my grandfather who still shoots his no. 1 standard in .270.

Shoots real well. Haven't sighted the scope in yet because of the hurricane. I have a Remington Model 700 in 30-06 that just punishes people. Have had three guys (very large) shoot the '06 and all three ejected the other two rounds they loaded.
The scope is a Nikon Prostaff BDC. They're great scopes for the money.

I have the same rifle except 7mm rem mag. Those Ruger Scouts are so easy on the eyes, I would love to have one!

^^ Yeah. It's a ten round magazine. I love the way this gun shoots. On the last day of the gun deer season I ended up seeing two does diagonally from across the 40 I was sitting on. In reading reviews, people said the gun was accurate to about 300 yards but after not seeing anything, I had to shoot. I brought the gun up and had it pinned against a tree and squeezed one off. She dropped but then got back up as I was shooting at the other doe that was running across the field. Had huge blood spots the next morning but never found it. I measured the range on Google Earth and it was just shy of 380 yards so I was pretty impressed with its accuracy... especially for a shorter barreled scout rifle.
