Savage Scout Rifle vs Hunting Rifle vs Moving Targets! Savage 110 Scout in 308 Win


welcome to another hot sunny Oklahoma
day I’m Kyle Broderick and you’re watching the social regressives
continuing review of the new savage model 110 Scout today’s challenge pits
eight users of all skill levels against moving targets we’ll have a guy
in the pit walking around with a target over his head and the rest of us will
fire at it at 100 yards in 200 yards the Scout will not only have to contend
with this dynamic environment it’s also locked in a match with a standard
hunting rifle to see which gun our guests prefer at the end of the day
both are firing the same hand load at 308 ammunition both scopes are cranked
down to the same low magnification make sure you watch to the end so you don’t
miss the group discussion patrons of the destructive arts suggested today’s
challenge and provided the necessary materials and reloading components if
you’d like to get involved check out the patreon page any time Justin alright so

pulled yeah looks good good shot miss if he had here’s that
what it takes oh it gave him smearing seriously man that was definitely low
ain’t high a little bit upper shoulder take it up a little bit
there you go cheese ready Center man call ended well then I didn’t miss we
just finished firing at a hundred and two hundred yards with both of these
rifles to see if we could kind of come up with an idea what we thought of each
of them and in the scenarios where a scout rifle is supposed to be used
whether you know one might be better than the other so I’m kind of curious to
hear from each of the guests here today and hear which which rifle they
would want to take home you know regardless of price doesn’t matter which
and just what they thought about the various bits of it you know go ahead
guys talk about triggers talk about how it fit into your shoulder how easy it
was to get behind the scope what you thought of the the image through the
scope and actually Kendrick take it away oh all right put me on the spot um let
me see things I like about the Stephens is of course the Boyd’s one there we go the optics on there are so crystal
clear of those I’m not so sure I’m a fan of the the trigger
I can’t even say why it’s just the feel I like the the a Q trigger on the savage
better suppose it depends on the force for is it a carry around rifle and you
know I could quickly acquire targets with the scout there we go overall is in
the Stevens I feel maybe it has a lot to do with the furniture and the optics and
just the the overall design it just looks and feels like a beautiful rifle I enjoy
firing that at you know longer distances that is six hundred yards
before and it was so comfortable it was awesome
as far as something I’d want to carry around all day and maybe go hunting with
a more versatile definitely the Scout it has it’s got an a good solid feel to it thus its it actually feels heavy to me
the center of gravity is nice though like I feel like I could carry it around
all day comfortably how about recoil recoil um I couldn’t
say I noticed a difference between the two it was all day long I didn’t notice
any recoil really it was negligible to me I could keep firing all day long
and I think Dallas here is holding his favorite so go ahead write some poems so
I got to fire this one the the students with wood furniture at 600 and I got to fire
in it was a comfortable I think what I would pick between two is I would pick
this one because for some reason I was able to look through down the site a lot
smoother and quicker than the the scout although the scout it it gave a lot less
eye fatigue is when you’re looking at what those eyes open like you should
that one’s not fatiguing your eyes as bad as the Stevens does but as
comfortability wise I would probably take this one any day it’s just the
furniture is so adjustable the the optic is so nice it’s very comfortable anybody
that doesn’t even have experience and come and grab this rifle I feel like an
experienced user what do you think Justin which one would you take home
short and sweet I prefer this guy I don’t have anything lower so quiet like
this it’s first time to ever fire scout type setup and I was able to do okay
today the balance that’s mentioned several times earlier balance on this
guy was superb I like it feels beefy really heavy you can tell and I like
that and again and just when I brought it the shoulder it wasn’t me didn’t seem
as front heavy as the Stevens there I like the trigger the a key trigger I
believe very predictable break clean crisp it
did its part I do prefer the scope dot on the Steve and rifle there it had
really good eye relief it was clear and but uh overall I’ve this gun for
handiness its capability versatility and for what I do this is what I prefer now
if I was a beam user long-range user I think you’d get advantage of
the longer barrel but for what I would use today definitely get more advantage
with the savage here what you got overall I’m using a low-power scope
on both of them as we kept the the Falcon down at 4x or below what do you
think of firing at 200 with it backed off that much I think they were both
yeah that both we’re nice and crisp low powered low powered at distance I
believe the Falcon had the better just because it’s got a few more areas that
you can use for hitting your middles looking at predictability stuff like
that this just being a simple crosshair it was easy to acquire you just kind of
guessed a little bit more on your leaf further out at distance for what I would
use for and if I was hunting in the woods or trees just carrying around
three out on a farm I would for sure prefer this one shot the Stevens a lot
of the Stevens last time we were out here this one with the a key trigger
love the a key trigger as Justin said it’s nice clean and crisp
coming off a dent some CQB the other day this is nice and easy to manipulate back
and forth whenever you’re looking for a moving target that’s just popping up
easy to acquire the know you said this on another review the action is just
super smooth just slam it open cyclone the bolts it’s easy did anybody
differ on the action it seemed like everybody thought it was a lot smoother
yeah it’s a very smooth different couple guys we’re
in the video though they were having trouble releasing the action I don’t
know what it was if it was as it gets hot it tends to stick a little bit that
could be my mo yeah yeah and I know I won Miss fed I caught the bullet as I
was going into the feeding ramp on one yeah so taco cock-on open yeah so it’s
it’s gonna be a little heavy when you get open anyway firing that Stevens
last time it felt good whenever we were doing both to these back-to-back this
one had a deeper draw which for me having longer arms I liked it better I
was talking with Zack earlier we shot this one and then we shot the statement
right after it and it felt like you were right up on the right up on the scope
which isn’t bad if that’s what you’re looking for but if you used two more to
scout and open for me the draw just fit better so I really enjoyed that I think
if this were my personal gun I might change the optic out and try to find a
hybrid if possible I don’t know what’s out there but do a little bit something
that’s maybe has a mil dot or something or a hybrid between this one and the
optics it’s in the other rifle and the Stevens yeah there are a couple of
scopes that you can get for this they’re gonna work better this is actually a
pistol scope so it’s eye relief is actually a little further out than it
should be for this one you know it’s it’s expected that you’re holding your
pistol you know all the way out as far as your arms can go so it’s a massive
massive eye relief and this is actually a little closer than it should be so
it’s not optimal but yeah there’s some really good ones from vortex and there’s
a really good one from Nikon out there that I’d love to try there’s a there’s a
holder Bushnell I think they’re phasing it out it’s an old Bushnell banner but
those were a lot better on here and I think we’d be happier overall yeah but
overall it’s a nice setup and again for the purpose of is designed for it so
it’s an excellent right between the two rifles did any of you
guys feel like one was more stable than the other this one it felt like more of
an extension of myself all the things 40 was talking about yeah could acquire the
target well and the balance just the fact that easy we were firing standing
up 200 with this it felt more stable last time when we’re usin problem
with that one that was excellent at that range yeah Jeff
yeah it’s it’s happy spot I will say between the two reloading the scout was
a lot easier than reloading the Stevens because you have to mash the mash the
bullet down through the through the fingers there and the Scout has to drop
out magazine bucks that was a lot a lot more yeah I fish it and effective then
trying to match those down into the the feed on the Stevens yeah I love the
single stack Maggie it’s yeah like you say super easy to
load it doesn’t really require much pressure to get them in there and then
once you start recycling it’s it really is like butter and that one it’s gonna
it’s gonna retain them really well on that Stephens like if you’re out hunting
I wouldn’t be afraid of anything dropping out or whatever but and we did
actually try one other magazine you might have noticed in there we had we
took out a steel magazine and accurate mag one and people have been asking
about compatibility with some of the accuracy international mags the Magpul
works great for everybody right no messes anything yeah but that steel one
it seemed like we had some failures to feed that first if you had one I know I
had one yeah it didn’t fit quite well it seemed like it needed a seat just a
little bit higher up now say what are the notes do you have
what do you what do you think of it overall the tree the predictability on
the trigger was a lot better well I preferred it at least on this one yeah this it was obviously too short for
you I use pistols I don’t use rifles very much mm-hm so this is okay I love
the fireball this thing quite a dragon thing a beauty you could see in the day
he did a day it was still very visible and that was kind of pleasant I like
them just audible Santa threw off in a short-barrel you good feeling Shasta
could be concussion so thing a beauty I like that and a glade then this is your
first time really firing a bolt-action so you were actually you hit the target
a bunch like yeah tell us even what it was like firing both of them ah so
basically the Stevens I like the feeding on my shoulder and I
for easier to aim is to fire with the Stevens compared to the Scout basically
this cow I felt a little bit more the coil compared to the Stevens probably
because of this feeling on my shoulder that I could fit better the Stevens then
this cow although as you mentioned to recharge the Scout was much easier much
faster and is really straightforward compared to Stevens principally for
myself that I was first time this one was very fast to to catch it was very
easy to put up the magazine very easy to set up the gun to be ready to fire
compared to the Stevens which is not difficult as well but it requires more a
little bit more attention in order to put up they did the bullet and
everything else again for principally for Ling long range I really liked at
this Steven but I see much advantage on this cow
compared you shot a whole lot of critters if you had to go out in the
woods and you know you do some deer hunting which one of these would you
take I honestly would take the Scout just
because of the the further the optic is away I like that better than having it
right up in my right up in my face I’m always afraid I’m gonna get scoped when
I’m firing big caliber so having the optic further away was was a nice change
and I preferred I preferred this gown I mean it is a smaller barrel but you know
it’s it’s a good gun I like it yeah dude did anybody like prefer getting on
target was one easier than the other to get on target thank you think is the
function of the scope of the rifle well what was this code okay 100 percent
of scope for me the scout was easier to get on target angry
I’m staying here I like getting on target with it the other thing I like
this the the rubber inlaid in the throat as you’re gripping it so hot days if
you’re sweaty or whatever you don’t have to worry about it slipping I know just
with the the plastic and what the the way the grips are going on the Stevens
are the boys at once thought it I don’t worry about it but just if you’re on a
hot day you’re sweaty that one would be more comfortable I would be more
confident and not losing a grip on that one yeah I agree I think I’m both I felt
like I could kind of put my hand anywhere on the furniture like especially
the forearm like get way out front if I want a little bit more stability pull
back and it was all work you know felt really good but I love these rubber
panels on the fingers because we are really sweaty today it’s it’s thinking
hot out here and really humid and yeah this one didn’t feel like it moving
until fantastic and of course this guy last time we had this rifle out we
didn’t use this little section of the forearm this has more of a beaver tail
going on fills the hand everybody like that yeah I noticed the difference I
like that better for my taste yeah this might be a case where if you
buy one of the at one’s just immediately go by this weather you’re
gonna be firing prone or offhand and just leave this puppy on here because it
feels nice it has a rubberized grip so this one doesn’t move around as much
this is the one I think you’re talking about right it’s kind of slick right
yeah this is plastic and it does have some texture to it
but it’s not gonna grip quite the the rubber on the other so any last notes
anybody I will say that stalker actually contemplated buying that portable
weights dog bear didn’t pull the trigger on it but it might convinced me to do so
otherwise thought was very functional the amount of adjustment you can make on
it modularity on it and it just is also very pleasing to look at it looks
beautiful and more beautiful in person than been online so yeah there’s
somebody that was skeptical seeing in person kind of changed my mind on it so
I think the furniture has got a lot of promise on that and it fixes so many problems
because with so many of the modern bolt-action rifle is plastic you got no
weight back here and it just it gets all muzzle heavy it just doesn’t feel really
nice to swing up and fire so I think this kind of fixes that well thank you
guys very much for coming out and playing and yeah let me just go through

  1. Awesome video. The stock on the hunter rifle was cool looking. It was nice to see two different 308 bolt action being compared with the same grain ammo. After 20 years of active duty in the Army, I love owning and firing a bolt action. I have the Savage action 308 win and in the future will get their 6.5 creedmoor.

  2. I'd like to see this test repeated with scopes that have ACSS reticle. It would be interesting to see if the ACSS really helps in moving targets. Maybe have it in a variable FFP and see if power helps or not.

  3. not quite the discussion i was expecting… the scout is suppose to be the end all be all for the ease of use… great video!

  4. Be a good idea to put together a syllabus for the homies.

    Some basics to know before the field is wet.

  5. Each designed for a different scenario/purpose. Seemed to compare accessories more than scout vs long rifle. Just mho. Enjoy your vids.

  6. Enjoyed this vid and the way you did the "round about" evaluations at the end- interesting to have differing opinions. I have a couple other Savage bolt actions (11 TH & 10FCP) in left handed 308. I am disappointed the Scout is not available in LH, but kind of relieved too as I won't be tempted to order one!

  7. Are you guys someplace unfriendly to muzzle breaks? I would have liked to see how well it soaks up the recoil…

  8. Hiya guys, just letting you know the state of affairs in NZ.
    Our liberal government has banned all AR15s and other military firearms. If they are not surrendered within 3 weeks it is serious prison time.
    Yeah I'm not joking

  9. Why did you take the muzzle brake off? That thing soaks up the recoil. One of the best features of the gun.

  10. Some of these guys look like first time shooters-little or NO lead is required at 100 yards for a target at walk speed. Never too late to learn.

  11. Looks like ya'll need to visit Gunsite Academy and learn how to run a bolt gun. Everybody was dropping it from their shoulder to cycle the bolt.

  12. Hehe im surprised they can hit anything, most of them cant even work a bolt action rifle lol.
    Funny vid good for a laugh and a great way to waste a bit of ammo for an afternoon i spose 👍👍

  13. I love how you folks were firing from the 'Standing Position'. (the LEAST reliable/accurate posture, if-not in a moving vehicle!?)
    I've always held-fast to the belief:
    Bolt action rifles excel at single shot/sniper tactics.
    Semi-automatic rifles can excel at first shot capability, with outstanding follow-up shots to finish the job as necessary.
    Manufacturers and Models of course, vary. As-does the skills of the one pulling the trigger.
    Thank You very much for sharing this video!
