WESTFIELD, Massachusetts – March 28, 2018 – Savage’s MSR 10 Hunter is now available in the 338 Federal chambering. Since its introduction in 2006, the 338 Federal has established itself as an extremely versatile, high-performance big game cartridge.
Shipments of these firearms are currently being delivered to dealers.
Built on the .308 case and “necked-up” to hold a .338 diameter bullet, this 338 Federal load offers hunters a faster muzzle velocity than the 308 Win. but with a heavier bullet. As a result, the short-action cartridge provides magnum energy for devastating performance on game, without magnum recoil.
Savage’s several options of the semi-auto MSR 10 Hunter take the popular AR-10 platform to new heights, offering greater performance, expanded caliber choices and a modern design, plus a full suite of custom upgrades packaged as standard features.
The Savage MSR 10 Hunter delivers performance from its upgraded Savage barrel with a 5R rifling, a two-stage trigger with nickel boron treatment, and a tough Melonite QPQ finish. Other upgrades including a freefloat fore-end, custom-forged lower receiver and BLACKHAWK! adjustable buttstock and pistol grip turn the Hunter into the ultimate big game rifle.
