That's interesting. I think Ruger did a run of their Compact Magnum rifles, ie. 20" barrel with open sights, and chambered them in .308. I had the can't helpits for one of them for a short while, but talked myself out of it.

Lots of folks aren't fans of the Savage bolt guns. I wasn't for a long time. I have one now that I won't part with. For a truck gun they make alot of sense.

It doesn't look that bad...for a Savage. I don't like the threaded barrel but we will see after I see one in person.

i see a crossover to the tactical market once they lose the irons and add a rail.
its got the right twist.

Interesting. I also like the Alaskan Brush Hunter. Similar, but 18" stainless and offered in 338 WM or 375 Ruger.

"I also like the Alaskan Brush Hunter. Similar, but 18" stainless and offered in 338 WM or 375 Ruger."

That's hot! I am finding myself getting excited and needing a new rifle! I too would go with the Patrol in .308.

"it says so on the box!!!"

That is funny, but marketing works!

i guess that its less than $450 and not avail in WSM's. you would have to remove the iron sights and add a 24" barrel then chamber it in 270WSM for it to be a "deer rifle".

I think if you lopped off the threaded portion, remove the rear buckhorn, and add a XS Ghost ring it would be quiet a handy little rifle.

I have two more better hog rifles. A scoped Win Mod 100 auto in .308, and an open sighted Rem Mod 81 Woodsmaster auto in .300 Sav. Real piggy rifles.

Lever/pump guns would be my second choice.

Yeah it won't be "quiet" with the threads lopped off but it would be "quite" handy. I should proof my posts better instead of just using a spell checker, but it was real early for me this morning and hadn’t had a full cup of coffee yet. If I was going to use a can for a "quiet" rifle, I'd have it rebarreled into a .300 Whisper or .300 AAC Blackout. 175-220 grain subsonic bullets with a can and night vision would turn it into a true pig thumper with more multiple kills possible.

No they make it in .223 Rem and .338 Win as well . I think they could have used a better stock than that Stevens 200 plastic stock though. I guess I was a little ahead of Savage when I built this three years ago, 6x47 Rem Stevens 200 with a 20” barrel has a SSS competition trigger instead of the Accutrigger however plus the longer bolt handle makes it easier to grab and work the action in a hurry.

Can you remove the call and fill the stock with corn, Kool-aid and diesel?

THAT would be a hog rifle. Dump out your stock, back up twenty yards and wait.

im guessing that part of the reason for the 1:10 twist is to stabalize heavies.
10.6gn Trail Boss bullet + 190 SMK
MV 1055fps
FOOPM!

That would work! However, for the guy who is buying ammunition the Blackout would be cheaper to buy. The ammunition is about 1/2 price the .308 Subsonic stuff.

yeah but the savage blackout is $800+ and only in the 20".

now i'd take a 527CZ or a NEF in the blackout today.

i cant get any love for the micro 7. too takticool.

give me a plain-jane miniX action and a 300ACC 16.5" threaded BBL dropped in a woodland McMillan and a 1.5-5 VX3...

WOOF!

Midway says they will get 300 blk barrels for Savage from ER Shaw in June. Less than $150.
