Madcapp, the use of is somewhat debatable, really any ish would work at those ranges. The big reason Cooper chose it was because it has the necessary take down power at close ranges for anything from small deer to big bears.
It pretty much serves as a higher powered replacement for what the did for the Western sportsmen and ranchers. Capable of taking most anything without being nearlyimpossible to handle. The fact that people have to compare it to that many different systems says a lot about how good it is at performing so many roles.
Funny to me cause most people actually argue in favor of the scout without knowing it. Which is the whole point in the first place, one rifle that can do a little bit of everything. Look at how many used firearms on Gunbroker are not getting any bids because of this. Typical of my local conditions.

This Ruger is over 7 pounds empty. One of my very favorites for ridiculously hilarious reviews is the can of uranium ore: I thought I was going to have a seizure. That is some funny stuff there! This was one of the reasons for the forward mounted scope. My Norinco M14, with It uses removable box magazines so it sort of cancels out the need for stripper clips.
Double stack mags have the advantage of more capacity for a given mag length but using the single stack one allows the controlled round feed action and often a slimmer receiver and more direct-into-the-chamber feeding and such. Nailed a big warthog running full out at yards. And exactly what Cooper intended it for. People in the field needing a practical, dependable and capable rifle that can take most any game out they come across.
I use this as my primary hunting rifle for the Coast range. Usually with iron sights, I rarely use the optic. With the scope off a bench I can get a. The laminate stock weighs more. You could eliminate some weight off this rifle with a different stock and some changes in the metal work. For example, why have a brake or flash hider? Hollow out the bolt handle, make some lightening cuts on the receiver, flute the barrel. It can be done. For many shooters, a rifle under 7.
Sheep hunters seem to be the market for these punishing rifles. Really, if you want to see a modern and thoroughly ridiculous concept for a cartridge, look no further than things like the.

Not sure of what the point is for this rifle other than for those that like short barrels. I mounted a x scope to see what it was truly capable of. Not a scout fan. I did purchase a Springfield scout squad, removed the rail, and put a standard hand guard. Then had it cerakoted in a nice tiger strip cammo. Love the size, and some of the best iron sight out there.
I think it could fill the roll of a scout rifle if needed minus the scope. Now I just need to swap out that loud a muzzle brake for a good flash hider. I like the idea that it uses M or M1A magazines that are lots cheaper than the proprietary Ruger mags.
I did a water transfer blue and grey USN pattern cameo on the stock and it looks pretty cool. Great gun and easy for a smaller person to manage. Seeing AR height optic mounts on a bolt gun makes my eyes bleed. Do you really not know any better? Did you guys even test it in any kind of realistic field positions?

I followed the link to guns in hope that they had a good price on the Tikka T3X CTR which is a comparable to this rifle , but no joy.
Thankfully my inability to commit on willingness to spend between the Steyr and the Ruger has kept my from buying one at all… so far. My family has shot many Wyoming deer and antelope with it, mostly one shot kills, including a yard one shot affair. A touch heavy, but plenty accurate.
