    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...
    Barrel extension, more parts in the bolt, and integrated rail

    Plus heavy contour barrel

    The 110 Hog Hunter is listed at 7.3lbs with a 20" medium contour barrel. (https://savagearms.com/content?p=fir...ummary&s=57018)

    The Impulse Hunter is listed at 8.8lbs with a 22" medium contour barrel. (https://www.savagearms.com/content?p...ummary&s=57647)

    From what I can gather from some quick googling, an inch of barrel only weighs a few onces (24" 300winmag is only 0.1lbs heavier than a 22" 308win according to Savage's website). Call it half a pound for the different barrel lengths, that should account for any slight differences in contour as well (unless Savage has greatly changed what "medium contour" means to them), and you're still looking at a full pound difference. If the receiver is lighter (aluminum is lighter than steel after all) then the barrel extension and bolt amount to a full pound of extra weight PLUS whatever the weight savings are from using aluminum for the receiver. That seems like a LOT of extra weight for those two relatively small pieces?

    That 110 has just a plastic stock and the Impulse has an accustock. The accustock is quite heavy for what it is. There was essentially no weight difference between the accustock on my 110 tactical and the MDT LSS-XL that replaced it. IIRC, my 110 tactical is listed around 8.8lbs with a fluted 24" barrel. That's probably a more fair comparison, and weighs about the same as the new rifles. Seems to me like the weight savings from aluminum receiver are roughly cancelled out by the barrel extension and extra bolt parts

    Unless I'm on a driven boar hunt, I want none of those 8.8lb rifles. Unless I have a gunbearer.

    Am I the only one who thinks the new savage rifles are ugly as sin?
