Featuring: The Savage Arms Model 11/111 Lightweight Hunter.

One of Savage’s newest rifles is the model 11 Lightweight Hunter. This lightweight rifle is perfect for the hunter that struggles to carry heavier guns. Weighing around 5 1/2 pounds, this model 11 rifle is a tack driver.

This is a heck of a gun. I’ve got one in .270 and my buddy Ron, CEO of Savage Arms, Inc., has one in 6.5 CREEDMOOR. It’s a freakin’ sweet gun, and a must-have for the serious Western hunter.

      My girlfriend loved the feel ,fit and finish of the 270 win wich I recommended to her as her first rifle for hunting with me out west for elk and deer after I checked the reviews . I own 2 other savages and thay have always been tack drivers and go to rifles . Unfortantly our first 3 trips to the range with this lightweight hunter have yielded less then stellar resaults . First off it is topped off with a 4×12 Nikon monarch ,shooting federal fusion 150gr for bullets and she could not get a group under 5.5 inches from a lead sled seriously !! I thought it was her lack of shooting skills I shot it in my promos group therapy shooting rest and managed 4.8 in ?. I imedeataly shoot my 243 savage and managed 1.3 four shot group . This 270 kicks like a mule and suffers from extreme muzzle jump and is not a tack driver !DONT BELIVE ALL THE REVIEWS ! This is my hounest opinion and unless she was unlucky enough to get a lemon I really don’t know what else to say but I am not inpressed at all savage . This gun is been hyped and had so many great reviews I really wish I could have shot it first and actually seen the accuacy first hand .

        Try using Winchester ballistic silver tip .270 in 150 grain. I had the same problem with my Savage and was referred to this ammo by friend of mine who was having troubles like ours. Our rifles are dead on accurate with the Winchester ammo.

    I think this rifle would be absolutely spot on for a .243 which is what I have been using for the past twenty years here in the south. Never missed or lost a deer with a .243. Less recoil, great accuracy. I’m thing about getting this rifle to replace my Winchester Model 70 Featherweight, which has been getting heavier the older I get.
