Cooper Scout Rifle Concept

Imgp5503-660x429A true Cooper Scout Rifle has been on my list of guns to buy since I first read about the concept, but something always came along that I “needed” more. Over at AllOutdoor, Major discusses the Scout concept …
Much has been written about Jeff Cooper’s scout rifle concept. Although no one can speak more authoritatively on the subject than the late Cooper himself, I have become a student of the concept.
Unfortunately, many writers have missed the spirit of the scout rifle concept, using the traits such as the light weight, .308 chambering, and overall length as mandates instead of guidelines. A point often missed was Cooper’s more important requirement of shooter capabilities. After all if you cannot hit the target, it matters little how good the equipment is.
