Really? This rifle doesn't provide any excitement for anyone here?

A picture would help.
The Savage logo really isn't THAT exciting...

I have a Savage 10 BAT/S LE .308 24" Hvy. Fluted Barrel, infact the link below is to my post as I'm trying to sell it. Like yourself I was thinking of upgrading to the 110BA in .300 Win Mag. It's sounds like these will be out later this year, I really like my BAT/S about the only downfall is it's a heavy rifle. The muzzle breaks on these work great.

I am shopping for a "tactical 338", or considering building one. I looked at this and while it is a killer piece for the price, I would rather spend a little more and get a Sako TRG-42.

It's probably not the actual weight that's the problem.
It's probably the distribution of the weight.
That gun seems to be way too front heavy to handle properly.
A traditionally stocked 18lb precision rifle does not really seem heavy and your gun should only be about 17lbs with scope and bipod installed.

Do you already have a good 308 precision rifle?

If not, read these threads:

Also FYI did you notice the 110BA was on the cover of American Rifleman magazine last month? (You are an NRA member aren't you?:)).. They did extensive testing in the feature and it performed very well. I think the best 300 yard groups were under 3 inches...

Good 300yd groups should be under 1" from a proper precision rifle.

3 inches at 300 yards? Hopefully that was a poor shooter.

You should read the article, there are full test data and explanations. He did admit to being a "poor shooter" in fact, but Savage employees also shot during the testing.

I agree but have not read the article so i'm not sure what ammo they used. I'd hope that it could at least pull off a 1.5"@300y other wise thats a lot of money for just a MOA rifle. Just about every off the shelf bolt action can muster a 1 MOA group at 300 yards.

I was wondering when or if Savage was going to come out with a long action model. I have to admit though that it sure looks sexy. I handled the 308 models and they felt rather "chunky". Not as heavy as I would have expected but still a little big for just a 308 rifles. IMO this type of setup better suited for a larger cal like 300WM or 338LP where mobility is not a requirement. I also can't for the life of me understand why anyone would need rails on a long range bolt action. Lights are pointless, laser are pointless, maybe a cup holder?
