The 110 Prairie Hunter: Savage’s first .224 Valkyrie bolt action (VIDEO)

We all knew this was coming. A bolt action rifle in .224 Valkyrie from Savage was expected on the heels of bolt guns in the Vista-born caliber by the likes of Masterpiece Arms and Mossberg. The new Prairie Hunter looks understated with its gray and black synthetic stock, but don’t let looks fool you. Like the High Country, the Prairie Hunter makes use of all things “Accu” — the Accutrigger, AccuStock, and AccuFit system. Furthermore, the threaded 22 inch barrel should be a performer on varmints and predators. MSRP will be $759.
