Savage Launches the New 5.8-Pound 110 Ultralite Elite Hunting Rifle

When you’re headed out into back country or stalking sheep or elk over difficult terrain, every ounce counts. To make a premium lightweight hunting rifle Savage has teamed up with Proof Research (carbon fiber barrel) and MDT (chassis, carbon fiber folding carbon fiber stock and forend) to produce the incredibly light weight 110 Ultralight Elite bolt action hunting rifle. Weighing a mere 5.8 pounds, the 110 Ultralight Elite initially comes in 6 chamberings (6.5 CM, .308, 6.5 PRC, 7mm PRC, 300 Win Mag, 300 WSM). Here’s Savage’s press release . . .

Savage Arms is proud to announce the launch of the 110 Ultralite Elite. Savage has again teamed up with proven partners to deliver a premium rifle. PROOF Research has crafted a barrel specific for this purpose driven firearm, delivering a Savage designed, carbon fiber wrapped stainless steel barrel. MDT, a leader in chassis systems and delivering value and accuracy to shooters, has its HNT26 folding carbon fiber stock on the 110 Ultralite Elite. This new rifle, combined with partner technologies, achieves lighter weights for higher altitude hunts and longer treks for big game.

“The 110 Ultralite Elite represents a significant leap forward in our commitment to delivering cutting-edge and innovative firearms to our customers,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing at Savage Arms. “We are thrilled to partner with PROOF Research and MDT to create a firearm that combines exceptional accuracy and durability with a lightweight design. The 110 Ultralite Elite is built to match the conditions of any extreme outdoor trek and can provide hunters with a tool to tackle any big game pursuit.”

At approximately five pounds, the 110 Ultralite Elite is designed to combat elevation and elements while maintaining the performance of a factory blueprinted Savage 110 action. The folding buttstock reduces the overall length by nine inches when folded, and allows for ease of transport in the backcountry. The carbon fiber wrapped stainless steel barrel provides the user with a lightweight carry on the rifle in all conditions. The 110 Ultralite Elite is the rifle that can outlast extreme weather or hunting conditions.
