Secrets Hidden in the New Savage Impulse – The Social Regressive

No one’s talking about the game-changing innovations at the FRONT of the Savage Impulse. This is a much stranger design than you might imagine.

Savage Axis Series:
Savage 12FV 6.5 Creedmoor Series:
Savage 12FV .243 Winchester Series:

The rig on my bench:
1. Savage Axis in 7mm-08 Remington
2. Bushnell Forge 4.5-27x50mm FFP Deploy Mil
3. Weaver 30mm Low Rings
4. EGW 20-MOA Base
5. Boyds Spike Camp in Walnut
6. Champion Premium Rest

The Savage Impulse features a surprisingly affordable straight-pull bolt. I want to try it out. But what’s happening up front is truly worth taking note of. The action is aluminum, not steel. You can’t thread a barrel onto an aluminum action without expecting catastrophic results. That’s why the Savage Impulse uses a steel barrel extension, locked in place by four bolts and a guide pin. That extension is where the Hexlock bolt actually locks up. And if you’re concerned about the ability of the Impulse to handle high recoil, sounds like you need not worry. If it can handle .338 Lapua Magnum, it can probably handle whatever weird wildcat you’ve been dreaming about.
