Default Picked up a savage hog hunter, positive vibes

Thus is random. Iíve looked at the savage hog hunter for years, always thought it seemed like a decent list of features for a fair price.

Finally bought one online, for it out of gun jail today. I was surprised by the significant diameter of the barrel, even though itís described as medium. The comb on the stock is high to aid in use of the suppressor height sights. I was happy about this as I put a Warne rail on it along with a Primary Arms 5x acss scope. Iíll let you folks know how it shoots once I can take it out.

That heavy barrel is what stopped me from buying one. I liked everything else about it. They came so close with that one!

When you are young heavy rifles are not so bad. The older you get they "weigh" on you.

You're going to get bored with it soon. All it's going to do is shoot bullets into the same hole all day long.

looking for opionions from the game hogs you intend to hunt using mentioned riflel?

I was more trying to share that I am satisfied with my purchase and think it was $498 well spent.

People are down on savages because they work right out of the box. It's not like a 700 where you need an industry full of aftermarket to de-jank the rifle first.

I'm picking up a 12fv once I can find ammo again.

First, OP, congrats on your new rifle. That's always a good thing.

Savage's 11VT is a variant of this, with the 24" heavy barrel and without threading. That rifle, also in .308 Win, likewise shoots lights-out.

So true as this is what my hog hunter 308 does. Great rifle for the money. Enjoy your new toy.
