Would the 111 300 RUM require opening up?
If I understand correctly, the 300 RUM would only require fitting the 270 bbl.
I'm not familiar enough with the Savage geometry to quite understand what is involved with eliminating the lock nut.
I have been offered a 300 WM SS 112 low profile action and laminate stock.
Is machining required to convert the bolt from 300 WM to 300 RUM or just swapping components?
Thanks again.

That bolt face should work fine. Both use the standard belted mag bolt face size.

To get rid of the barrel lock nut system, you simply machine the new barrel like you would a Rem 700 and leave out the lock nut. Would look just like a Rem 700 when finished, at least in the barrel to receiver junction.

The Savage receivers chambered for the RUM have a larger diameter receiver thread.
