Can you buy a long gun in New York with a passport instead of a driver's license or anything other than a driver's license?

Not sure about New York but in some states it depends on the county. If you don't have a driver's license I would recommend getting a state ID, which you can get at the DMV and looks and functions much like a driver's license -- minus the driver part.

Can anyone think of a good platform for a "Scout" style rifle? I'm cool with something a little odd if need be.

Or a relatively inexpensive Battle Rifle type weapon? I want a large caliber rifle I can use for multiple purposes.

Mosin Nagant is about as cheap as they come for a potential scout rifle.

For a semi-auto, look at a Saiga .308 - it's the basic Saiga AK design that's been increased to .308

Alternatively, CETMEs from Century Arms are cheap-ish, and the mags are dirt cheap (go to cheaperthandirt.com and look for used G3 magazines, they may require minor filing to work perfect but they are almost perfect for CETMEs -- $3/20round mag).

CETMEs are 7.62x51 NATO.

Only catch is the CETMEs may not be brass friendly, so if you want to reload you may want to pass on them. I know the related G3/HK91 is absolutely brutal to brass.

Anybody have any experience with the Savage Scout or Ruger M77 Frontier? I can't get a Steyr, but I might be able to swing a Savage or Ruger.

Can anyone tell me how much i could expect to spend on the most basic reloading setup? Also, would it be at all cost effective to reload 7.62x54r? I dont mind breaking even on per shot cost + the equipment, but I dont want to go too far over. I really just want to move away from corrosive surplus ammo.

basic reloading runs about 2-300 for the actual reloading stuff. You could go cheaper but then you'd have bottom of the line crap

I recently dropped about $450 on a mid-level, though pretty complete reloading set-up, and so far I've been working on 9mm and .40 pistol loads as well as .308 and some .223's with no problems. I'm not sure about the 7.62 being cost-effective, but I can tell you that reloading is a fun and interesting hobby, especially as you get into tweaking your loads for various applications. I'd say try it even if you won't save a lot of cash on the 7.62, as you likely will save a lot on other calibers. Plus, you'll be "going green" and recycling all that old brass. ;)

I'm really thinking about picking up a handloader (not the hammer one, one of the red Lee ones) since I have an apt and no place to load. I really need to start reloading 10mm

Ditto. Going to reload small batches at first. I can always upgrade later.

If I had time and cash I'd reload shotshells. I know a lot of the guys that have been shooting for a long time that go to the skeet field I go to do it. Though, it seems like it might be easier, since there is no trimming or polishing of brass involved, there are more steps and materials. At least shells are not that expensive like a lot of centerfire rifle cartridges are now.

Got Phase V looking for me a Nagant carbine. Quoted price was between $79-109. They'll call me when they get it. Doorbells man.

I'll be looking a the M-N my shop has coming in on Monday- hope it is as nice as it he's been told. Sniper model, restored but not refurbed too much, so it's mostly original parts (not the barrel) and it'll run me less than what Mitchell's Mausers was asking by many hundreds. I'll add my own optics and such as I desire and have a nice collector for the cabinet and for fun.

Is it possible to purchase a shotgun in NY with a TX driver's license? Can you purchase a shotgun with a birth certificate or passport?
