There are few that will dispute the long-range accuracy of the .338 Lapua. However, there is a challenge in harnessing the round’s precision.
The powerful and ballistically gifted cartridge is none too cheap, and neither are the rifles that shoot it. But Savage Arms is shooting to end the assault on the pocketbook of those who desire the utmost exactitude at distance.
The Massachusetts manufacturer has done this with the recent introduction of the Model 112 Magnum Target rifle. The platform offers the effectiveness of the .338 Lapua, but with a MSRP of $1,177 is much more affordable than most other options presently available.
Savage built the rifle around its single-shot Magnum Action and mated it with a number of other features to enhance accuracy. Some of these include a pillar-bedded heavy barrel and the company’s adjustable AccuTrigger, which can be dialed down to a pull weight of just 6 ounces.
The Model 112 Magnum Target rifle weighs in at 12 pounds and is 49.8 inches in overall length. It has a 26-inch barrel, which is button rifled — like all of Savages firearms. And the long-range instrument is outfitted with a grey wood laminate stock and comes with a muzzle break.
