Any company that could build a chassis-based precision rifle that performs well, and sells at an “affordable” price, was sure to do well in this new and emerging market. Ruger did it first with their Ruger Precision Rifle, which is selling faster than they can make it. Next out of the gate are the new Savage Model 10 BA Stealth and Model 110 BA Stealth rifles.
The Model 10 BA Stealth, a short-action rifle, is offered in .308 Winchester 6.5 Creedmoor. It appears that the .308 Winchester is being marketed to Law Enforcement. It has a 20-inch barrel, which is often preferred by LE snipers who need precision, but seldom shoot at extreme distances. The Model 10 in 6.5 Creedmoor chambering has a longer, 24-inch barrel and is ready out of the box for long range shooting. This cartridge is dominating in long range shooting right now and I have no hesitation in predicting that it will be the best selling chambering for this rifle.
