Savage decided that for the 2011 SHOT Show they would introduce a new lightweight hunting rifle in .338 Lapua. There wasn’t a lot of hype about it but it was one of the coolest things we saw there. Custom .338 hunting rifles are the rage these days and custom gun makers are getting upwards of $5k for them. Savage will be asking a much more reasonable price. The gun comes ready to go with an accutrigger, accustock, detachable magazine and quick discharge style break. We didn’t get a weight but it’s fairly light considering the caliber. We were told that they put it together just before the show and hadn’t had a chance to do any testing. We’ll update as we learn more.
