undefinedSavage Arms has officially announced the release of six new rifle models, all chambered in .338 Federal. The new chambering will be available in the majority of the company's most popular big game rifle platforms.

Built on the .308 case and “necked-up” to hold a .338 diameter bullet, this load offers hunters a faster muzzle velocity than the 308 Win. but with a heavier bullet. As a result, the short-action cartridge provides magnum energy, without magnum recoil.

The platforms that are adding the .338 Federal chambering this year include: the 11 Long Range Hunter (MSRP $1,104), 11 Hog Hunter ($560), 16 FCSS ($885), 16 Bear Hunter ($1,035), 11 Trophy Hunter XP ($612) and 16 Trophy Hunter XP ($740). The new models are already on the way to distributors, and will be available to consumers shortly.

AmericanHunter.org contributor Phil Massaro took a closer look at the 11 Hog Hunter earlier this year. You can check out his thoughts right here.
