    Aren't the mags made by Accuracy International?

    At $74.99 each, you may be right...

    The one I tested used them. Thing is, AI rifles are not CRF and the magazines for the AICS are not controlled round feeding rifles. They are Remington.

    Personally, I'd rather see stripper clips used in a scout rifle than those obnoxiously big magazines.

    I'm pretty sure CRF means "center round feed" when talking about magazines and "controlled round feed" when talking about rifle actions.

    Isn't one a function of the other?

    very nice! I have the precursor of the Gunsite Scout, the Ruger Frontier. I love it. Very handy, very accurate.

    I need to take it shooting....

    BTW, for those of you asking for a bolt gun that uses AR-10 mags, the rumor is that Mossberg is going to expand the MVP line to have a .308 using AR-10 mags.

    No. Controlled round feed has to do with how the bolt handles the round after it is stripped from the magazine. Center round feed magazines do just that, they feed in a single stack from the center of the magazine.

    The metal 10rd mags are AI, its stamped right on them. The polymer ones aren't marked as far as I can see...
  • JasonMPDJasonMPD Senior Member Posts: 6,210 Senior Member
    The markings on my mag are:

    Ruger emblem on bottom, triangle over "M", ".308" and "ACCURATE-MAG".

    Are there any controlled feed designs that use non-center round feed magazines though?

    Guess mine was a prototype.

    One thing I've learned about Ruger Rifles and handguns OEM / Ruger factory mags are the best, few aftermarket ones have ever worked in any Ruger I've tried them in. Their new 1911 may be a different story.

    Here is a pic of mine. It has a Bushnell 2x6 Elite handgun scope.

    The internal magazine in most bolt actions are staggered feed.

    Col. Cooper just sat up in his grave and gave you a toast!!! I'm not sure if the scout rifle was his brainchild originally or if he just picked up on it. If I remember correctly it WAS his baby. But whose ever it was it was a very practical and cool idea. Congrats and you DO Suck Large time!!!

    You wanna hunting rifle, then buy a .308. It is my favorite round. I have several, but none are bolt actions. With 180 grain Nosler bullets I think they are fine for bout all heavy game. Yeah, other hunters want bigger rounds and that is fine, of course, but push come to shove your .308 will do you good service on all 'Merican game animals, and there are scads of bullets you can load into one.

    With modern powders they are equal to a 30-06. Hemingway shot rhino with a '06.

    The .308 is not the equal of the .30-06, close maybe, but not equal.
  • JasonMPDJasonMPD Senior Member Posts: 6,210 Senior Member
    As an update: I have an AAC compensator/suppressor adapter on the way. This will be a fun gun to add a can to in the near future. I still have not had a chance to shoot this beauty without the compensator for a comparison down the road, but I'll report on the compensator once I get it in.

    And as the story goes, plenty of Elephants have been taken with a .303 British until someone told them they weren't supposed to.
