Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle Accuracy :: Quick Look

The Ruger Gunsite Scout rifle is quickly becoming one of my most favorite guns to shoot. It is compact, fairly light, and quick. I have outfit mine with a Bushnell TRS-25 Red Dot mounted on the forward picatinny rail.

Two 3 round groups at 100 yards
Firing from a seated position; using sandbags as a rest, I placed a target at 100 yards. I chose to use a Goat Target from MyTargets.com just for fun. At 100 yards the "3 M.O.A." dot covered the majority of the target as I fired. In the picture above I fired two three round groups with a slight adjustment after the first group.

I was firing 150 Grain Federal Power-Shok fed into the rifle through the provided 10 round magazine.
The GSR is fitted with Ruger's LC6 Trigger which has very little noticeable creep and breaks clean every time. The only modification I've made to the rifle is the replacement of the flash hider. I think the supplied flash hider is ugly and chose the PWS Triad to replace it. Hopefully I will replace that with a AAC Cyclone-K within the year :)

Overall, I am pleased with the accuracy from a forward mounted red dot. I have no doubt that even more accuracy could be squeezed out of this rifle with the use of a magnified optic. Now I need to get my hands on the polymer magazines.
