Anyone who shoots a rifle expects accuracy. But there is a special breed of accuracy enthusiast that forever chases the one-hole group. Once they attain it, they begin to chase that group at longer and longer ranges. They demand ultra-heavy barrels, dual port actions, sculpted fore-ends and buttstocks to ride sandbags and bench rests. The 12 Precision Target Series is where these guys are finally able to end their chase.
Perhaps the most elite collection of these accuracy purists is Team Savage. They’ve mopped the floor with guys shooting custom rigs and had their “production rifle” status called into question because, in the minds of some, a production Savage is just TOO accurate to be an off-the-shelf rifle.
Savage Target Series rifles are the farthest place in our line from “beginner” rifles. With dozens of decisive world-class titles, these are elite rifles for elite shooters. These are for the accuracy obsessed who want to test their skills on the ultimate playing field: the 1,000-yard range.
