My zombie apocalypse AR of choice. An updated version of the old M-14. It still has a stock suitable for braining walkers (or anything else).

Ruger "Scout Rifle," trying to cash in on the trend. 308 Winchester (7.62mm NATO), magazine-fed, bolt-action, iron sights and scope-ready, 16.5 inch barrel general purpose carbine. Wouldn't recommend it over the Steyr for accuracy, but cheaper and probably good enough for routine jobs.

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.
