Default Savage Chambers MSR 10 Hunter in 338 Federal

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.

I had a 338-06 bolt rifle (just slightly more powerful than the 338 Federal) . It destroys way too much meat when using low weight / high velocity rounds.

Looks like a fantastic choice. I suppose that means one can get a Savage upper in .338 Federal by itself, as well?

I would think that awesome news for the AR platform "hunting" fans!

~ AR-15 -- 6.5 Grendel or 6.5 Creedmoor
~ AR-10 -- .308 or .338 Federal
