In the world of hunting and outdoor sports, the quest for the perfect rifle is unending. The Savage 110 Ultralight Elite emerges as a frontrunner, blending lightweight design with impeccable performance. This article delves into the features that make this rifle a top choice for hunters and shooting enthusiasts.
The Savage 110 series has been a staple in the hunting community for years, known for its reliability and precision. The Ultralight Elite takes these qualities to the next level. Weighing in at just over 5 pounds, it's a marvel of modern engineering, perfect for long treks and challenging terrains.
What sets the Ultralight Elite apart is its meticulous design. The rifle features an MDT HNT 26 stock. The folding stock option adds versatility, making it easy to transport and handle.
The heart of the Ultralight Elite's appeal lies in its precision. The 20-inch barrel, combined with a finely tuned ACU trigger, ensures accuracy even in the most demanding situations. The trigger, set between 1.5 and 2 pounds, offers a crisp, clean break, essential for precise shooting.
Durability is key in any hunting rifle, and the Ultralight Elite doesn't disappoint. The Cerakote finish protects the rifle from the elements, ensuring longevity and reliability. The diamond-patterned bolt, coated in blackout Cerakote, not only enhances the rifle's aesthetics but also its functionality, providing smooth and quiet operation.
The true test of any rifle is its accuracy, and the Ultralight Elite excels here. While on a recent hunt I had the opportunity to poke some holes in paper and bang away on some steel. The steel plates got too easy, so I opted to shoot the clothes pin test. The clothes pins test, conducted at 100 yards, demonstrated the rifle's precision, with tight groupings that speak to its superior design and craftsmanship. Each shooter on the line took their shot at knocking clothes pins off the at 100 yards.
The gun outperformed this shooter’s expectations. I certainly am not that great of shot, but with the Savage Arms 110 Ultralight Elite I felt like I owned that range. We all know with quality comes a hefty price tag.
Priced at $3,299 MSRP, the 110 Ultralight Elite offers exceptional value. Considering the quality of components like the Proof Research barrel and the overall build, it's an investment for serious hunters seeking top-tier performance without compromise.
The Savage 110 Ultralight Elite stands out as a pinnacle of hunting rifle design. Its combination of lightweight construction, precision, and durability makes it an ideal choice for hunters and outdoor enthusiasts.
