A few weeks ago in our Top Shot Series of mind dumps we did an early rifle review of the McMillan Tac50 then just a couple weeks after that we covered the Sako TRG-22 in 308 Winchester. This type of military/LEO sniper-certified rifle that’s finding its way into civilian markets and zombie kits of people who have the money to do so doesn’t necessarily start with nor is it limited to the two rifles listed above.
What am I talking about? Well, if you’ve seen our first ever video review on the Savage Axis/Edge rifle in .243 Winchester you know we have a penchant for out of the box accuracy. So I figured I might as well throw another Savage rifle into the mix for you to gawk over. The Savage 110 (yes THAT 110) BA specifically in the 338 LAPUA has gained quite the following in this civilian sniper market. I’ll give you 10 seconds to guys what “BA” stands for. Ready? Okay, moving on.
The Model 110 BA combines classic Savage AccuTrigger, glass bedded stock, free floated barrel and out of the box accuracy with a pistol grip and tactical/fully adjustable butt stock with a carbon steel barrel and muzzle brake I’d call a JP style. The scope base comes standard with a 20 MOA tilt (which basically means it’s designed to reach a LONG way without bottoming out adjustments on your scope), think 1000 meters plus long. The magazine is a detachable box mag that holds 6 rounds for the 300 win mag and 5 for the 338 LAPUA. There’s Picatinny Rails galore and in short, it’s awesome. MSRP comes in at around $2300 but we imagine retail will fall somewhere in the $1800-$2000 range. If you’re looking for something similar maybe in a toned down model, you can get the Model 10 BA in .308 Winchester in the same setup for a couple hundred bucks less.
It’s also not a coincidence we’ve posted this today, November 2nd, as Savage Arms has promised to roll out some sneak peaks of their 2012 line over at their Facebook Page! “Like” their page and see what all the hype is about.
