Savage Arms has just announced that their new 110 Apex Predator XP is now in dealers' stores--and it's a must-have for every predator and varmint hunter. In biology, any predator that is not preyed upon by any other animal in its ecosystem is referred to as an "apex predator," and with this bolt-action rifle in your hands that's a definition that definitely applies to you. Assume your place at the top of the food chain with a purpose-built predator-hunting package rifle, complete with a ready-to-hunt Vortex Crossfire II scope. 

Many predator-specific rifles aren't particularly adjustable, in large part because most predator hunters tend to use a rest...but if you're a smaller-statured hunter or someone who prefers to spot and stalk, trying to wrap your body around a gun that's too long induces fatigue. That's why the 110 Apex Predator offers adjustability and accuracy like no other predator package rifle. The length of pull (LOP) of its synthetic Mossy Oak camo stock can be quickly adjusted to fit any hunter for better comfort and consistency.

The adjustability doesn't stop with the gun's LOP. The 110 Apex Predator comes with Savage's famous AccuTrigger, which is hands-down one of the nicest factory triggers in the industry. That trigger is user-adjustable down to an almost telekinetic 3-pound trigger pull, making accuracy a snap. 

Then there's the optic. The gun comes complete and ready to hunt right out of the box with a 4-12x44mm Vortex Crossfire II scope, which has already been mounted and boresighted at the factory. The Crossfire II’s Dead-Hold BDC reticle makes it easier to place accurate shots at extended range, and the optic is securely mounted to a one-piece EGW 0 MOA rail with Vortex Hunter medium rings. 

Available in .308 Win., .22-250, .204 Ruger, .223 Rem., .243 Win. and last (but not least), 6.5 Creedmoor. The MSRP is $749, a tremendous bargain for a package rifle. Click here for more details
