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.

    I have owned the LRH in 308 for about a year an a half I get .3 to .5 MOA with Reloader 15 with Molly SMK 175 at 100 yards. I shoot an 8 inch target at 900 yards on a regular basis. I have shot side by side guys with $7,000 plus custom guns and it does just as well. I about to put a Choate stock and Brux barrel on it and I fear I may just mess it up. But I am going for a cool look more than anything. I have at least 2000 rounds down it and it performs as if new. Yes the thin rubber is peeling a bit and I can no longer close the muzzle break either but I really do not care. Great gun you have to look for excuses to upgrade this rifle.

    Hey, I have the savage 111 with the adjustable muzzle brake, and I was wondering if there was a way to remove it and replace it with a threaded brake.
