    Savage model 11 Hog Hunter

    Has anyone seen the new Savage Hog Hunter?It's a new
    product from Savage that's a true short action in 308 and
    223 with a suppressor ready heavy 20 " barrel ,BUIS,oversized
    bolt knob with accu-trigger in a green syn. stock with spongy
    recoil pad.Best part,it comes wit a MSRP of $513.00 and a street
    price of $419.00.To many good features at too good a price to pass
    up so I got one to outfit with a Burris Fullfieid Tac II.Look forward
    to giving it a workout tomorrow and will post results.I believe this
    Would make a perfect reasonably priced hunting/ GSR (Guerrilla Sniper Rifle).
    A very capable SHTF rifle able to make head shots@ 200 and body shots to 600.
    Check them out if you get the chance,alot of gun for the money,400 pawn
    still has one in 308 and 2 in 223,but I'd hurry

    I had to look that one up. Heck of a lot of gun for the cash.

    Barrel is much heavier than it appears in the picture,
    also recoil pad on mine is thicker and very soft.Weight
    is around 7.5 lbs by digital scales.I'm pleased with the
    purchase.

    Comes in .338 WIN too but .308 WIN is probably the round I would pick. A low power variable scope with quick detach just in case the optics were damaged to allow access to the irons, decent sling..... A detachable box magazine with a couple of spares would really make a sweet budget shooter.

    Savage is known for making great accurate shooters for the money.

    Well I promised a range report,although brief the rifle
    did not disappoint,Once sighted in the hog hunter delivered
    one.73" group,Then one .77" group with Hornady 168 BTHP
    match.These were three shot groups @ 100 yards.Still very,very
    pleased with this purchase.Although too much for me,one in
    338 Win mag,would be like the poor man's version of the scout
    sniper 338 Lapua LOL.If $$ permitted,I'd like to see what one could
    do in that caliber at extended ranges with a good 250 gr. OTM

    Saw one the other day at Basspro...been looking for a bolt rifle with iron sights. The guy behind the counter said they don't make bolt guns with iron sights anymore so I told him to turn around!

    Let me know how it shoots.

    -Didn't see you already posted how it shot! Thanks.
