Default New Savage 110 with Proof barrel

SAVAGE DEBUTS NEW 6LB 110 ULTRALITE RIFLE WITH PROOF RESEARCH BARREL What do yíall think? I know a lot of people donít like them, but they are one of the most accurate out of the box guns around. At least the ones I have had are.

I think it looks interesting. Real world price on it will probably be around $1350ish. For the money Iím thinking of trying one in 280AI.

The only complaint I have ever had with Savage rifles is their looks. They are normally one of the most accurate mass produced rifles there is.

I donít like the Accutrigger but this rifle is a heck of a good price. Saw on another forum where they were selling for in the $1200+ range.

Those look pretty sweet. All my other savages shoot lights out, even though they don't look the greatest

Ugly guns shoot patterns, not groups. I have several Savage rifles that are accurate as all get out. They are beautiful, even though they don't look all that great.

Every Savage I've owned has shot great. Personally feel they may be the most accurate production rifles made in their price point. Add Proof to the mix and now we're talking something completely different.

IMO, for the money they are the most dependable and accurate out-of-the-box rifles made. As far as the triggers go, I cannot for the life of me figure out why so many talk bad about them? Maybe they just donít know how to set Ďem up properly?Ņ

Saw this new model the other day and got pretty excited about it. Only issue is right now the only caliber available is .308. I wish they would bring back the classic walnut stock 14/114’s and 11/111’s. I love my savage’s they all shoot great.

My jury is still out when it comes to wrapped barrels. That said, if I am looking for the most accurate out of the box rifle, Savage is the first one I consider. Everyone I ever owned or own now are all under .5 and one being .25 moa.

I have a Savage 260 with a Shaw barrel that shoots in the twos.

Stock is awful but its in the running for sure. Been eying a T3X superlite really hard. almost 3/4 pound lighter, but have to decide if I want a wrapped barrel and to spend the extra coin.

308 is not the only option. If you are looking at it on an iPhone for some reason you canít see all of the caliber options listed on the far left side.

I may buy one of for no other reason than to be able to easily change barrels.

Iíve been wanting to buy a Savage to play with that option.

Definitely interesting- I wasn't a fan of how they cut weight to create the LWH and it looks like they did the same thing on this rifle to lighten up the action. The LWH I felt was disappointingly rough and seemed to bind easily.

BUT- The Long Range Hunter in 6.5x284 that I bought when I started reloading was definitely extremely accurate and needed only minimal load development.

If you want a PROOF on your Savage don't limit yourself to factory-- Proof has been offering Savage Pre-Fits for awhile and I think they are up to 17 cartridge choices.

Looks like a pretty slick deal for an ultralight rifle. It says they are blueprinted from the factory. Swap the stock out and you have a cheap version of a custom rifle.

You can buy pre fit savage proof research barrels on stockys already. I think that is why savage came out with this rifle. Iím sure they were loosing out on the market thatís out already out there.

Edit: duck beat me too it.

I donít see why it wouldnít, looks to be the standard 110 long action with 5.062 hole spacing, just skeletonized.
