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.

Whatever a 7x57 can do a 270 can do better.

True fair chase is you in the woods buttnaked with nothing but your finger nails and teeth.

If you'e fixin' to put a hole in something, make it a hole to remember.

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

I think I like it.


Like it, or not, you should really stick to what you're good at.

Interesting. 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!


Good Shooting!

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.

.308 WCF the only chambering on this one?

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 hadnt 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.

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.
