My hunting buddy bought one of those Steyr "Scouts" in .308 Winchester about two years ago... the rifle that Col. Jeff Cooper has been advocating for the past many years.
It's a slick little rifle, but I think it's over-priced at well over $2,000 a copy. The bolt action is very smooth and it seems to be a very well-built little rifle with lotsa features including a built-in bi-pod and storage for extra ammo.
From everything I've ever heard about Steyr rifles, they're supposedly very good rifles... well made and accurate, but "pricey".
A buddy of mine has a Steyr (don't recall the model) in .308. Nice in every way except for the fact that it rusted heavily after one day of SE Alaska hunting. He had it Arctic-Koted (AKA Tuff-Kote, etc.) shortly thereafter and has had no problems since.
