Must be for the new centerfeeds. They have the larger opening.

The staggerfeeds are limited by the magazine opening on the action.

CDI Precision Gunworks DBM Bottom Metal Review

CDI Precision detachable mag


CDI seems to be the main contributor to the bottom metal upgrade with a minor removal of material that is not visible to the exterior of the rifle. It seems to me that SSS, and Badger make one, but don't hold me to that.

The CDI only seems to come available for Short action.

IS there a long action Detachable set up that can be used to set up for the 338's?

This is just a thought, you should call and talk to CDI, Seekins, Badger Ordance, SSS and other manufacturers. They may make them and you can not find it on their websites. If they have something that will match up with the screw pattern then it may just require a little fitting. I know that I have seen a ton of Savages built with after market DBM's. Check with the guys on savageshooters.com. They all have a ton of info there. Check with some builders too. GA precision has produced some rifles with DBM's on Savage actions. I'm sure Shawn Carlock, Kirby Allen, JE Customs and many others on this sight could point you in a general direction.

Aldon's right, CDI is short action only.

Nobody else makes a long action DM system for Savage.

That is unless I missed something. I'm a moderator at Savageshooters.com. I'm there quite a bit, but it is possible that I missed something new.

I know I have seen them, but maybe they were all short action rifles. The Lapua is a new game for them, and they did produce a RUM for a short period. I guess if you are doing a custom, you will even have to get custom bottom metal. I bet anyone of the builders with machine shops could make you one.

CDI has them

CDiPrecision gunworks Flyer ad - Sniper's Hide Forums

Bottom of the ad, Savage L.A 308 box size uses AICS mags, savage L.A. Win Mag size used A-AW mags

He just started making them, I haven't seen anyone with them installed yet.

He is great with customer service.

thanks, Kent

Re: new build on a savage 300 r.u.m.

Well, I'll be darned. I checked his website before, it isn't there.

I might have to try out the long action bottom metal on one of my WSM's.

Wonder how the AI 300wm magazine will feed the wsm's?

They definitely won't feed a RUM length.
