I am totally inexperienced with rifles so I am just going to use the iron sights, then try a scout scope since I don't know any better. Plus in the woods of NC if I were to hunt deer or hog I wouldn't probably need to make a shot over 200 yards at most anyway. I probably don't really need a better scope. If I ever feel that need I'll probably buy another rifle with a longer barrel to throw the better scope on anyway. This is going to my short range fun gun. I think if I lived in a place like TX or the high plains somewhere I probably wouldn't have purchased a scout. It's probably not as useful in open spaces with longer shots.

Does that interfere with the bolt and action?

No, it is the 'standard' way most scopes are mounted on hunting and sniper rifles.

I just bought a Stainless Ruger Scout and took it to the range. It hit 2.5 inches high at 50 yards so I tried it on the 200 yard sighting plate ( a big square of steel ) . I hit the plate 5 out of 7 shots offhand ( wavered a little on the two misses ) . Also, forgot to take off my progressive lens glasses and use my shooting glasses, so the sights were blurry . I like the ghost ring sights . Crisp but slightly heavy trigger . I took out the spacer at the butt for minimum pull . Love this gun !

B.S. : Can anyone explain the reason for bead & blade sights ? They force you to aim below where you want to hit or else the bead obscures the target . You have to align a vertical as well as a horizontal relationship . I've got bead & blade on my Ruger 77 / .22 and I don't like the gun much ; Maybe it is the bead and blade I don't like !! ( ????)

I have read that at distance the sights block the target. My plan was to shoot it at the range a while, learn something about rifles, and then possibly change out the sites. But if they work well under 300 yards they might be fine for me. I can't see shooting anything over 300 yards in my use.
