NRA Gun of the Week: Savage Arms Hog Hunter

posted on October 19, 2015

The Model 11/111 Hog Hunter stems from the Model 110 rifle action that has made Savage so popular. Designed with the nation's ever-growing feral pig population in mind, the Hog Hunter features a 20" barrel that comes factory threaded for any muzzle device that you might have in mind. And, starting this year, it became available in .338 Federal.
