110 Klym First Impressions Lede

The Savage 110 line of hunting rifles may be its most famous--and for good reason--but that doesn't mean that Savage's visionaries intend to rest on their laurels. Long known as an ideal "out of the box" factory hunting rifle, the 110 family has a whole new dynasty in the making: the Savage 110 KLYM. (We're pronouncing it "climb," because this big-game hunting rifle was created to take you up the mountain alone, and back down the mountain dragging your harvest.) Through strategic partnerships with PROOF Research and Fine Ballistic Tools (FBT), the KLYM series brings new performance to rifles designed for the highest treks and most remote backcountry hunts. 

The KLYM series offers some of the lightest, toughest rifles available to hunters today, and spans across both Savage's proven 110 and Impulse platforms, so shooters have a choice between straight-pull and a traditional bolt throw. Regardless, each KLYM offers features an exclusive carbon fiber wrapped, steel cut and 5/8x24 threaded barrel from PROOF research. When combined with the FBT custom carbon fiber stock, these rifles will allow hunters to go further and hunt harder with less weight. The stocks also include one-button adjustable comb height, two sling studs and a Magnaswitch system installed.

For the ultimate in accuracy and functionality in the field, the 110 KLYM options include a user-adjustable 1.5-4 lb. AccuTrigger, tang safety, blueprinted action, drilled and tapped receiver (8-40), and a one-piece Picatinny scope rail. Available calibers include options from 6.5 Creedmoor to .300 WSM in both the Impulse and traditional lines.  

“The KLYM line truly is revolutionary for big game hunting,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing at Savage. “PROOF and FBT helped take us to the next level. Hunters accustomed to long hunts and backcountry expeditions that span multiple days and numerous climbs will appreciate the lightweight platform that maintains the ultimate in accuracy and reliability. Everything about this rifle was made to perform as it stands up to the elements and puts the latest technologies in these comprehensive big game rifles.” The MSRP depends upon the model chosen ($2,699-$3,299);
