Editor’s Note:

The Savage Impulse has brought the world of lightning-fast straight-pull bolt-action rifles to the U.S. market. Utilizing a ball-bearing lock-up system, the Impulse allows for quick follow-up shots, making it ideal for hunting. The Predator version comes with a 10-round detachable AICS box magazine, adjustable AccuTrigger, and Savage’s AccuStock with adjustable LOP and comb-height. It also features a one-piece 20-MOA optics rail and a medium contour, carbon steel, threaded barrel. All of these features combine for a fast-shooting, accurate platform that is well-suited for almost any hunting situation.

By The Numbers - Savage Impulse

A good supported prone gave us a 0.65 inch five-shot group. A better support, bipod or sandbag would make it easy to score even smaller groups.
It’s a bolt action. It goes bang, cycles, extracts, and ejects very well. There isn’t much that the gun could fail at, and it hasn’t.
It’s a new gun. Toss on a sling and an optic, and that’s about all you can do right now.
Almost everything about the ergonomics is fantastic. The controls, the big, long bolt, the magazine release, and especially the LOP.

final verdict

“Though I’ve never been a huge bolt gun guy, the Savage Impulse ignited a passion for bolt-action rifles in my heart. Seeing my dad’s joy at shooting the rifle tickled me. We had a good time with the rifle and each other…so much so that I’ve since purchased the rifle from Savage.” – Travis Pike
