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 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).
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.
