SAVAGE 5.7x28

Savage is now listing the 5.7x28 as one of their cartridge choices. However it doesn't show what rifle it will be in. Does anybody have any insight as to what this rifle will look like? I think this could be an awesome small game/ varmint rifle.

Re: SAVAGE 5.7x28

My only experience with the 5.7x28 is in my PS90, what I do know is that it's an accurate round even out of the PS90 (terrible trigger). I know it doesn't answer your question but if I had to guess I'd say the same action they use for the 22 Hornet?? maybe??

Thats kind of what I'm figuring too. I just hope not. That Model 25 is a little different. I would rather see a dedicated super short action made for it.

Re: SAVAGE 5.7x28

A brand new action for a relatively new cartrigde is stretchin it a little... but who knows? Savage has brought us several suprises (for the good) in recent years....

I'll still put my money on the model 25

Re: SAVAGE 5.7x28

Your probably right. Its just that I like Savage and I don't own a model 25. I've never known anyone who had one, and I've never seen one on a gun shop rack. I just hope that putting it in that rifle doesn't condemn it to failure before it gets a chance.

Re: SAVAGE 5.7x28

I understand completely, I am a Savage fan as well (I have 4), I think I got the chance to handle the 25 in 22 Hornet but I know i didn't shoot it, the action is a FUNKY design but I believe that if it didn't shoot well Savage wouldn't put their name on it. I would really like to get my hands on one to play with just for kicks, I wouldn't own one as i'm a southpaw & the 25 is RH only IIRC.
