Not sure how Savage reconciles calling the new Model 10 GRS a “secret weapon” with sending out press releases about it, but either way it sounds like a great rifle. We’re certainly living through a renaissance of extremely accurate, highly-configurable bolt guns at non-custom prices. Press release follows . . .
Savage Arms Introduces Model 10 GRS
SUFFIELD, Connecticut – April 19, 2017 – Savage Arms is pleased to offer serious long-range shooters a new secret weapon with the Savage Model 10 GRS.

I believe a 6mm Creedmoor flavor is planned as well.
nice looking rifle
It looks like a TC Encore and an Anschutz killed a fifth of tequila together nine months ago. I want to touch it.
No left-handed version? For shame, Savage!
Yes, that’s the first thing I looked for and was also disappointed.
Aside: I’m an odd case here. I’m right-handed but have poor vision in my right eye and so although I shoot handguns right-handed, I shoot rifles left-handed. I do OK with it, though, including an Army Sharpshooter badge (missed Expert by one @#$&* round!).
From the photo it’s hard to tell if the cheek riser is concave or convex on the lefty side. I’m gonna have to find out.
Hmm I wonder what gives you the idea that a 6.5 Creedmore version is planned? That’s some hard hitting investigative journalism… I’ll bet it’s going to come with a 24 inch barrel.
Try googling 6mm Creedmor ….
For the reading impaired, the press release lists 6.5 Creedmoor, which is a different caliber than the 6mm Creedmoor I mentioned later. How ’bout dat?
Also, it’ll probably have a 26″ barrel.
Also, cash me ousside.
lol my bad. Misread that. : )
Why in the name of all things good and holy does the 308 version only get a 20″ barrel?
Good question, because the velocity doesn’t level off with the .308 until about 26 inches. http://rifleshooter.com/2014/12/308-winchester-7-62x51mm-nato-barrel-length-versus-velocity-28-to-16-5/
.308 barrel needs to be longer, they are handicapping this chambering in favor of the 6.5, Why? Some so called expert says that a 20 inch barrel is good enough for our snipers why not a bench rest guy!
What I don’t get is why GRS is not considering making a long action version of the Berserk stock. This thing is screaming for the .300 Win Mag.
WHAT IS THE MOST ACCURATE 6.5 CREEDMOOR ROUND IN THE NEW SAVAGE MODEL 10 GRS 6.5. WILL BE DEER, COYOTES, SHEEP AND TARGETS. THANKS,
