Savage 116 Alaskan Brush 338WM
Does anyone here own or have shot one of these? I'm semi interested in buying one but the 18" barrel makes me nervous. The recoil doesn't scare me but the muzzle blast must be awe inspiring. What about loss of velocity? I'm much rather have one with a 20" barrel.
There's a thread on these about 12 slots down.....
I've got one with a 20 inch barrel, and haven't had my bell rung in the field any worse than any other large centerfire rifle. No complaints at the range either.....they are all loud. No excessive recoil to be concerned of, it shoots like any other 338.
