i was looking at 308s a little bit ago. i went with savage 10FCP-SR. threaded barrel 5/8-24 thread pitch, accutrigger, accustock, 10 round box mag uses the same mags as the ruger scout.
ive always considered the scout rifle bolt gun to be nothing but a gimmick. it doesnt really do much well. cant put a good longrange scope on it. its too slow an action for quick follow ups. doesnt make any sense to even have an optic on such a design much less using a red dot. the scout doesnt even allow for a good set of superior iron sights. the stock sights are a joke.
if your going to get a 308 and you want long range firepower with fast follow ups an AR10 is a no brainer. can mount easily very high quality irons or a good long or shortrange scope
if you want a long range bolt gun there are a LOT better options than a ruger scout.
if you just like the way it looks and like the ruger m77 design nothing wrong with that. just dont expect it to be anything target grade quality.
just my opinion.
