Savage has been making a scout rifle for years. I gave mine to my son  probably 10 years ago.   Ruger makes one, too . A couple of scope manufacturers  make specific long eye relief scopes for this application.   :)

Musician, the Jeff Cooper Scout Rifle article was an excellent read, loaded with some very insightful information. Thanks for posting.

Did you give Weatherby a call and ask about it, it'd be interesting to see what they have to say.
Nothing is better than a Weatherby, big bore magnum, or a Colt.

you can tell it is a stainless synthetic made around 1995-1999. I do remember weatherby offered it about the same time frame as the stainless mark v was in production.

Very cool gun, does it come with a gift certificate for shoulder surgery.........lol
I can only imagine how that bad boy would kick with a 20" barrel in 300 Weatherby Mag, that explains the forward scope  ;)

I must fix my earlier statement. I do know there are scout rifles made by various makers. But I never knew Weatherby made one.

I checked with Weatherby on this and it appears this Scout was not produced my Weatherby but is modified to make it into a Scout. Weatherby also advised that they would not have used that 20" barrel configuration with the .300 Weatherby. In any event, it makes a nice addition to my collection and, if anyone is interested, the serial number is SW002275. And, as I reconfigure to shooting on my left side - due to my eye issue - I will shoot it and report back on the results. Hopefully, it performs well as it would make a perfect backup rifle due to its short barrel and quick acquisition lay out.

Be very careful of the whopping recoil from this rifle, even though your shooting from the left side. Could there be a chance of ocular damage to the right eye from the recoil?

I wonder if this rifle would be a candidate for Reduced Recoil Loads?  Still be a good up close camp gun.
