Savage Model 11 Long Range Hunter

    The new Savage Long Range Hunter is a very compelling rifle. As the name suggests, it is designed for long range hunting where accuracy is paramount. It is packed full of features including the AccuStock, an adjustable muzzle brake and an adjustable comb.

    I believe this is the first rifle to feature Savage’s new adjustable muzzle brake. The idea behind adjustable brakes is that they can be find tuned for individual loads so that the rifle jumps back on target, allowing the shooter to see if the game was hit. I have heard it also said that adjusting a brake can help accuracy.

    The Savage rifles are now equipped with Savage P.A.D (Personal Anti-Recoil Device) recoil pads. Premium recoil pads are now commonplace, so this is not a big deal.
