Savage Arms 111 Long Range Hunter: The Deep Threat – Part 3 of 3
The .338 Lapua Magnum has the military’s endorsement, a law enforcement backing, and hunters appreciate its raw power on big game. The only conundrum is owning a .338 Lapua in a package that is feasible to carry. Many hunters and huntresses need accuracy and power tied together in a lighter-weight package. The Savage Arms 111 Long Range Hunter delivers just that!
Where most Lapua rifles weigh in at 12 – 30 Lbs, the 111 Long Range Hunter comes in at a manageable 9 1/2 pounds. This rifle is also drilled and tapped to accept a scope base. To make things even easier, Savage Arms ships this rifle with a full rail. Another shooter luxury is the “Karsten Customs” adjustable cheek rest that is featured on the 111 Long Range Hunter. This allows for a customized feel with better eye positioning behind an optic. Savage Arms gives a great description of the stock they engineered for this rifle and many others they offer:
It features Savage’s innovative AccuStock… a revolutionary new bedding system that creates a perfect union between the action and the bedding rail — offering better stability, better accuracy. In short, it’s the best factory bedding system in the world, and you’ll see the difference the first time you pull the trigger!“
The detachable box magazine is another great convenience to this rifle. Whether you’re climbing in and out of your vehicle, your treestand, or over a barbed-wire fence, it ensures safety and a fast ability to load your rifle.
The massive muzzle brake that caps off the barrel your shoulder will also thank you for. It takes this admittedly large caliber down to a tolerable recoil level for more shooter confidence and enjoyable shooting.
So don’t leave anything to chance, and don’t give elk, grizzly, moose, or any game you pursue a chance with the Savage Arms 111 Long Range Hunter!
