In the 1890s, Arthur William Savage obtained patents for a repeating rifle and hammerless striker-fired mechanism, and then he founded Savage Arms in Utica, New York. More than a century later, today the company that still bears his name produces a host of rifles and shotguns for a variety of uses. They have recently announced some new additions to this lineup, with the expansion of their 110 Model series into 300 PRC territory.
Here’s what Savage has to say about the 110 in 300 PRC:
WESTFIELD, Massachusetts – When the Department of Defense began looking for a long-range sniper round that produced consistent results with lighter recoil and less muzzle flash, Hornady’s 300 PRC quickly rose to the top. Now Savage has chambered several rifles in the outstanding new caliber that allow hunters and marksmen to make the most of the new round.
“The 300 PRC has opened up new possibilities for extreme long range shooting,” Jessica Treglia, Sr. Brand Manager at Savage Arms, said. “There’s no better platform for the round than a Savage. With their AccuTriggers and AccuStocks, Savage rifles offer the rugged stability needed for reliable accuracy at any distance.”
While 300 PRC is capable of exceptional accuracy, the round is not simply a paper-puncher. The true potential of the 300 PRC comes from the intentional pairing of heavy .30 caliber bullets with non-belted cases and temperature-stable powders. The 300 PRC’s projectiles achieve repeatable accuracy thanks to their high ballistic coefficients. The 30-degree shoulder of the case provides stable chamber alignment, while the non-belted cases stack efficiently and feed reliably from magazines. The combination allows for fast follow-up shots.
When these attributes are combined with Savage’s thread-in headspacing, floating bolt head, and button rifled barrels, the 300 PRC achieves astounding accuracy. With the stability of AccuStock and the precision of Savage’s AccuTrigger, the round’s potential is fully realized.
Savage builds rifles that enable shooters to make the most of their abilities. Now, with these guns in .300 PRC, competitors can reach new distances, hunters can push the limits of ethical shots—even southpaws will have off-the-shelf options that, once again, demonstrate Savage’s commitment to accessibility for all shooters.
