Ruger Scout Rifle by rodteague.

Jeff Cooper popularized the “scout rifle” concept. A scout rifle is a bolt-action rifle of not more than 7 lbs. unloaded weight, not more than one meter in overall length, and have a common medium-power caliber like the .308 Winchester. 

Basically, it’s a rifle that’s powerful, yet compact and lightweight.  It is a general purpose weapon suitable for hunting or defense.  The fact that it’s a bolt action means that it’ll likely be more accurate and easier to maintain than an autoloader.  The low weight and size makes it suitable for carrying on very long marches, or into very thick foliage or confined spaces.

 A scout rifle would be perfect for a survival or civil collapse scenario, when heavier or more complex weapon systems like an assault rifle or full-sized battle rifle might have limited practicality.
