Savage Arms Offers New Model 10 GRS Chambered for 6mm Creedmoor

Savage 6mm Creedmoor

Savage Arms recently announced the company was now offering a version of its Model 10 GRS rifle that is chambered for the 6mm Creedmoor cartridge. The company states that rifle is capable of “accurate 1,000 yard shots” for long range competitions.

The Model 10 GRS is a bolt action rifle that was released earlier this year. Prior to the 6mm Creedmoor, the rifle has only been available chambered for the .308 Win and the 6.5 Creedmoor.

The gun uses the Berserk stock made by GRS Riflestocks AS of Norway. This stock is made of fiberglass reinforced Durethan, which is a form of thermoplastic with a high mechanical strength, high level of stiffness and good resistance to both chemicals and heat. The stock is available only in black at this time. Both the cheek height and the length of pull are adjustable to fit the shooter.

Savage Arms uses a 26″ heavy barrel in this rifle. The barrel is fluted, button rifled and threaded (5/8-24 threads with a protective cap.) As one might expect, Savage Arms installs its AccuTrigger on these rifles. On top of the receiver is a rail for mounting a scope.

All of the guns in this line have a suggested retail price of $1,449. For the 6mm Creedmoor, the price includes a single 4-round magazine.

    “All of the guns in this line have a suggested retail price of $1,449.”

    Well that pretty much settles it, then. That’s an incredibly reasonable price! I’ll have to handle one of these and quite possibly buy it.

      More expensive than the River PRS, and not as good imo. IDK, I think they missed the mark.

        Ba-da-bump…

        River PRS?

  • James Earl Jones

    As much of a steal Savage is as far as accuracy for the price (I have 3 in my safe and all shoot wonderfully), I’m considering still considering trading mine in for some of the nicer Bergaras. Those rifles are very very nice for the price.

    I’m not a precision shooter and don’t know much about Creedmore but… 6mm AND 6.5mm Creedmore? But why?

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Because apparently .243 was stupid because it was too weak for anything “real”, then 270WSM was too harsh, then people realized how cheap and effective 308 was, but then PRS guys like 6.5mm because it’s easier to shoot; and now 6mm because those same PRS guys (who there are like 500 of at most, but drive a whole industry of “shooters”) moved back to 6mm because they couldn’t possibly admit that 243 worked.

      • Anonymoose

        A lot of people claim they want short actions over long actions because the shorter throw gets them back on target faster and easier, but I think it’s really because the .308-based is the flavor of the month, and if you’re going to go long-action you may as well get a magnum, and that would be too harsh for some people.

        • Stuki Moi

          Haven’t those 500 PRS guys, determined that short and fat is ultimately a fraction of irrelevance more accurate than long and skinny as well? Or was that the benchrest guys? Or perhaps just the Winchester marketing department?

      • ORCON

        Well said. I had a guy at an F-class match tell me how the 243 Winchester and 260 Remington were a solution looking for a problem. Then he went on to espouse all of the virtues of the 6/6.5mm creedmoore. I just smile politely and said “Good to know.”

      • NMhunter1371

        I believe bullet tech had a large hand in the development of the “creedmoor” cartridges. Shorter case length allows for long ogive bullets, without the drawbacks of seating bullets deep within the case.

    As per the Savage website, this comes with a 10rd mag, not a 4.
    6mm Creedmoor is an interesting round. Deciding whether to standardize with 6.5s (I have a Grendel a Swede with more in the works) and get a 6.5 Creedmoor or branch out with a couple of these. Hmm.
