I have both in different systems. I've juggled them between the two and actually love them both. I've added a GrooveTracer sub Platter to the RP-6. Turned it into a much better table. Made the biggest, most obvious and immeadiate improvement of any mod I've ever made. Bass now super clean, presence and sound stage are amazing. Started out with the Exact cart. No major complaints until I bought a Dynavector 10x5 with Soundsmith Ruby retip on Audiogon. Combo is fantastic. No mods on the Scout. Running a Soundsmith VPI Zephyr and Soundsmith pre. Love it too, but waiting for my new VPI Prime to arrive.
Heard the Rega 3 and have seen the Rega 6 in the flesh. The 3 sounded good. I could never wrap my head around spending that kind of money on that type of build quality. I know others disagree but I am not the only one. I don't think you will go wrong sound wise either way.
I have heard the VPI Scout, Classis, Prime and Aires.
If I were you I would skip over the scout and buy a used Classic or Prime. I think it will save you money as
Both can be had for under you max amount if you are aggressive
