Working with Gunsite Academy in Paulden, Arizona, a few years ago, Ruger designed a modern-day rendition of the scout rifle based on its Model 77 bolt-action rifle. Lieutenant Colonel Jeff Cooper, the founder of Gunsite, originally conceived the idea for the scout rifle. It was to be a general-purpose rifle. In his book, “To Ride, Shoot Straight, and Speak the Truth,” Cooper defined the scout rifle as being “a conveniently portable, individually operated firearm, capable of striking a single decisive blow, on a live target up to 200 kilos in weight, at any distance at which the operator can shoot with the precision necessary to place a shot within a vital area of the target.”
