Available in short and long actions, the Lightweight Hunter from Savage has caught the eye of more than one editor. The short action version weighs 5.5 pounds and is available in .308 Win., .260 Rem., 7MM-08 Rem., .223 Rem., and .243 Rem. The long action is available in .270 Win. and 30-06 Springfield and weighs just under 6 pounds. Look for a 20-inch blued barrel, AccuTrigger, and a handsome American walnut stock. MSRP starts at $875.
