Massachusetts-based Savage Arms, expanding its caliber offerings on the 110 Precision platform, announced it will now make the rifle in 6.5 PRC.
The new chambering will join the four – .308 Win, .300 Win Mag, .338 Lapua, and 6.5 Creedmoor – that the 110 Precision was introduced with in 2020. Like the rest of the series, all these rifles come standard with a hand blueprinted action using a MDT LSS XL chassis and a heavy carbon-steel, matte-black threaded barrel. Other standard features include a detachable AICS magazine, adjustable AccuTrigger, skeletonized stock with a fully adjustable comb, one-piece EGW rail, and an FDE Cerakote finish.
Savage is excited about the new caliber offering when it comes to its use as a long-range hunting round.
"This is essentially a magnum version of the 6.5 Creedmoor – but much of what makes the 6.5 PRC cartridge great for hunting makes it a contender on the competition side, too. 6.5 bullets are known for their exceptional ballistic coefficients and the 6.5 PRC adds more velocity from its short-magnum design," said Jessica Treglia, senior brand manager at Savage Arms. "They are performing really well and are especially capable in adverse conditions."
The Savage 110 Precision is available in both left and right-hand models, with an MSRP of $1,595 for each rather than charging a southpaw tax for the lefty.
