Savage Drops a New 224 Valkyrie: Introducing the 110 Prairie Hunter

Savage is catering to all of the small caliber fans and varmint hunters out there with the launch of the 110 Prairie Hunter. This rifle is chambered in 224 Valkyrie, which is a wise choice by Savage because this cartridge is known to have less wind drift and drop than any caliber in its class while maintaining less recoil than any cartridge that offers similar ballistics. All of this allows the hunter to put more rounds on target. The 110 Prairie Hunter features a gray AccuStock which is user adjustable for comb height as well as the length of pull and features a beavertail fore-end and dual sling swivel studs.

The 110 Prairie Hunter may be compact, but it is designed to be an absolute hammer, chambered in 224 Valkyrie.

The 110 Prairie Hunter comes with Savage’s AccuTrigger that is adjustable from 1.5-6 pounds, which is a must for any kind of precision shooting. This rifle will undoubtedly be extremely accurate because of the aluminum spine in the AccuStock that runs the length of the action to the fore-end to increase rigidity coupled with Savage’s 22″ button-rifled carbon steel threaded barrel (1/2×28).

The muzzle is threaded 1/2 x 28 and has a target crown.

In order to maximize this rifle’s long-range performance, the Savage 110 Prairie Hunter comes standard with a 1 piece 20 MOA optic rail. Also, this rifle has a detachable magazine with a 4 + 1 capacity which makes reloads a breeze. This rifle only weighs 8.75 pounds and has an itty bitty price tag of $759 MSRP. Expect to see this rifle in stores around April/May for around $500.

This long-range centered rifle comes with Savage’s AccuTrigger and AccuStock.

    Looking forward too getting on of these for a rebarrel too 6.5 grendel. Should be a awesome lol rifle.

    Wonder what the mag allows for handload length?

    Savage could have hit it out of the park if they would have went with a 26 inch bull barrel with the same 1-7 twist plus bottom metal that excepts AI style magazines. Oh well

    Questions not parsed from article, with regards to .224 Valkyrie Savage 110 Prairie Hunter action:
    Is the box magazine Savage only or generic?
    Is the bolt in a short action? (In the picture it looks like a long throw long bolt.)

    That 7:1 twist will not properly stabilize the heaver bullets. I a using 6 twist with great results

      This cartridge needs more barrel and twist rate availability. While the twist is an issue I cannot understand the idiots who make or buy this in a carbine package. What’s the point?
      I would like to see longer heavy barrels in the 24-26″ range with a 6 or 6.5 twist for the 90 and heavier bullets. I have heard rumors of up to 108 grains. Must look like a crossbow bolt.
      On the other hand a twist of say 8 for 60-70 grain would be launching 3,500 fps+and be one heck of a varmint rifle.
      As the saying goes, “so many guns, so little time.”
