The main difference is texture, IMHO. Scones are heavier, denser and, in the case of the recipes from this book
I use most often, scones tend to be drier. I find I'm usually adding a bit more liquid than called for. Biscuits tend to be fluffier and a bit moister. Probably more favorable for soaking up all that gravy.
Also, most of the scones that are sold around here are sweet, not savory.
