I really like them both, but I prefer the Scout. For me, that is the best rifle in terms of price/performance that has hit the market in years. Excellent at almost everything - though not the best at anything.
Not necessarily true. There are precision shooting models. Also, HK made sniper rifles (PSG-1) from that same system.

I don't know about PTR, but that was my experience with the similar HK91. However, read around forums and you will find the following below:

Plus, get a heavy recoil buffer (the one fitted by the buttstock) if the recoil is too hard for you.
