Savage Arms Offers Several Rifle Configurations in the Popular 338 Federal Caliber

September 30, 2016

SUFFIELD, Conn. – Since its introduction in 2006, the 338 Federal has established itself has an extremely versatile, high-performance big game cartridge.  These qualities have inspired Savage Arms to chamber six of its most popular big game rifles in the caliber. They include the 11 Long Range Hunter, 11 Hog Hunter, 16 FCSS, 16 Bear Hunter, 11 Trophy Hunter XP and 16 Trophy Hunter XP. These firearm options are currently shipping to dealers.

Built on the .308 case and “necked-up” to hold a .338 diameter bullet, this 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.
