Wishing Ruger would come out with an American Scout Rifle. Make MSRP about half of what the Ruger Gunsite Scout is. Akin to the price difference between the Hawkeye and American Rifle. The American Ranch is already 80% there, just add sights and a forward mounted rail.The Ranch is a short action and should handle and should handle the 308 just fine. While we are at it, chamber it in the same rounds that the Gunsite Scout is chambered for, the 223, 6.5 Creedmore, 308, and 450 Bushmaster, but add a couple of more, the 7mm-08 and 243 Winchester. The 6mm Creedmore is worth a look too. The 2 Creedmore cartridges would need a 18" barrel though I think.
