    Bergara Scout

    Hi, have been looking at buying a Begara Scout single shot in .308. Has anyone got any positive/negative feedback on these i.e accuracy? Looking for a short barrel bush gun for deer, any suggestions?

    Good bit of kit. I have a 44. With supp and subs it goes Pfffuthh through strainer posts at 50 mtrs.. Accurate yep strainer posts die hard ha ha

    Extra baffle on the suppressor made a bit of difference. No recoil 18 yr old tiny niece loves to fire it ...

    Sounds like enough to drop a deer! No faults or flaws? They seem like a sweet little package.

    Accuracy is very good. Good slim rifles to carry.

    I am picking that the same rifle in 308 is likely to be a bit more accurate than in 44 mag over distance

    They are hefty for the size, but @Happy s one is pretty light with scope, suppressor, steel rings and rail. The 44 bergara is very accurate when compared to a Rossi lever rifle. The .308 should be good

    I have two, a 44 Mag and a 308. The 308 balances nicely with an DPT Overbarrel suppressor, but it's really a short range (200m max) rifle and is out of balance with a bi-pod. I'm just working up a load for it and it looks like 150g pills will work best. I'm going to try 30.30 projectiles at reduced (2,200 fps) velocities. Currently I'm using Sierra 150g SPs over 45g AR2208. Having said all this, I will be using it at distances under 100m in the "thick stuff", mainly on Sika and occasionally Fallow.

    I have a 45-70 B13 arriving in the next couple of days.
    I got it shortened right down and made into a takedown. Plus I've got a massive custom silencer for it. I'll put up a pick once I got it. Damn keen to put my subs through it.

    45-70 takedown subsonic silenced

    45-70 13.2gr Trailboss fun.

    Or full strength.

    So, I suggest this set up.

    Greg @ CustomGuns Invercargill did it for me.
