I've heard this before, what problems do they see if you have the large shank Savage and install the barrel correctly? If there where problems, you would think that Shilen, Pac-nor et. al. wouldn't be selling the RUM drop in barrels for the Savage due to fear of litigation.
The RUM is a big cartridge, but runs the same pressures as other magnums that I've never heard had problems in the savage?
Just curious what the real scoop is, or if its supposition repeated as fact, or if there is some fact to base the supposition on etc.
