WESTFIELD, Massachusetts – December 4, 2017 – Savage Arms has great news for serious shooters and hunters who want more from their modern sporting rifles. Several options of the semi-auto MSR 10 Hunter takes the popular AR-10 platform to new heights, offering greater performance, expanded caliber choices and a modern design, plus a full suite of custom upgrades packaged as standard features. Shipments of the new rifles have been delivered to dealers.

The Savage MSR 10 Hunter is a compact sporting platform that still packs the punch of 308 Win., and 6.5 Creedmoor chamberings. The rifle squeezes even more performance from its upgraded Savage barrel with a 5R rifling, a BLACKHAWK! trigger with nickel boron treatment, and a tough Melonite QPQ finish. Other upgrades including a freefloat fore-end, custom-forged lower receiver and BLACKHAWK! adjustable buttstock and pistol grip turn the Hunter into the ultimate big game rifle.

In January 2018, MSR 10 Hunter will available in the 338 Federal chambering. Since its introduction in 2006, the 338 Federal has established itself has an extremely versatile, high-performance big game cartridge.

Built on the .308 case and “necked-up” to hold a .338 diameter bullet, this 338 Federal 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 for devastating performance on game, without magnum recoil.

    Any information on what brand of .308 AR lowers these are compatible with?

    • Rob says:

      They are unique. They are built on shorter receivers while still having the wider BCG of the legacy 308 patterns. It is somewhere in between the older Armalight pattern and the new DPMS short frame. The closest thing would be the Colt LE901 but the pins obviously wont line up.

    I love the side charger on the MSR-10 Long Range and really hope they put it on the Hunter models, eventually.

    I wasn’t really sure what to think of these until I handled and shot one. After which, I became a believer. Considering it’s basically an accurate Small Frame .308 for under $1200 that’s made by a great American company, what’s not to like?
