    Ok, I've been pondering quite a bit on this...why do savage rifles seem louder than rifles of the same chambering from other manufactures? My model 10 223 and my wsm are louder than anything non braked I've ever heard and my 17 hmr is louder too...

    Maybe the stock profile pushing your muffs up enough to leak sound?

    I have not noticed that, personally.

    I wear plugs....muffs push on my glasses too much....everyone around home can tell the savages sound louder, even from a mile off(literally) we had a 223 savage and Remington and an AR side by side, same length barrels, same cheap federal 55grain fmj bulk box ammo, Remington and AR sounded almost the exact same, Savage sounded like a cannon....

    I was shootin my model 12 26" barreled 300 wsm Monday and my moms neighbour came over, he just bought a Remington 700 in 300 wsm (which with factory ammo my savage out shot) with a 24" bbl...his sounded like my dads old 30-06...mine was louder than his braked 338 lapua that he brought over too.......
    On a side note, I think I would really like to have a savage 110 BA now!

    to me they don't sound louder, but when I was at the range, someone asked me what cannon I was shooting...they were surprised that it was a 22in bbl 308 win
