Probably... But I was just thinking that I love the style of the Scout Rifle. The heavy stock and barrel, the rails on the fore end, the magazine-fed bolt-action and I thought it would be awesome to have one in .223/5.56 for plinking and small-game (coyotes, small pigs, varmints, etc.). I don't hunt, but if I did, I guess I'd want a 308. For general range use, I don't have a need for anything larger than .223/5.56. Heck, I have a Mini 14 but my 10/22 and 22/45 are my go-to guns.
I wasn't looking to challenge the purpose of the Scout Rifle design. I was just sort of suggesting a less-expensive alternative to the GSR that would allow one to shoot less expensive ammo.
It would make a neat compliment to anyone with a GSR in 308, yes?
