    A 6.5 Swede with the heavy threaded barrel would be epic, similar performance to 6.5CM but much better barrel life

    308 Hog Hunter for sure.

    Price is not as bad as anticipated!

    I was wondering about the barrel attachment too. They have some (fairly minimal) info on the Savage website and it looks like there is a steel barrel extension that the ball bearings lock in to. Kind of like an AR, but ball bearings instead of rotating lugs. Unfortunately it looks like this new system isn't going to work with normal Savage prefits, so swapping barrels for carbon fiber options wouldn't be as easy as I hoped. This is just my understanding as a consumer with no info other than the company website.

    223 would be awesome if they were lightweight.

    I think it locks into a barrel trunnion rather than the aluminum receiver?

    Straight Pull rifles are a European thing for a reason.

    Hunts are largely stand hunting or fixed possition only.
    Heavy rifles swing better for a follow through on moving game
    Straight Pulls are faster on multiple targets


    There is a reason why Straight pull rifles flop in North American hunting. They're tok heavy, too expensive, and we rarely ever shoot running game, and multiple targets at once.

    308, 338fed, and 9.3x62 make a lot of sense give the weight and purpose of these guns.

    What’s the twist rate on the 243 and 22-250?

    I dont understand why they're so heavy. If they're using an aluminum receiver I'd think it would lighten the gun, not make it heavier, so where the hell is all this weight coming from? A Savage 110 hunter is listed at 7.25lbs, so this is 1.5lbs heavier than that.

    https://revivaler.com/heym-sr30-straight-pull-rifle/

    This says the SR30 is under 7lbs in its lighter configurations, which means straight pulls aren't inherently heavy. I can't help but think the 8.8lbs listed by Savage must be a mistake...
