Savage 110 build?

Looking to start compiling parts for an eventual build. Being a lefty means savage actions are easier to find than remmy's...
I am contemplating a RUM or Lapua build. I have heard that the 110 action should not be used for these cartridges unless it came from a gun originally chambered in Lapua / rum.

Any truth to that?

I do not think you can get a lapua bolt face but could be wrong. The only problem with running a rum in a standard savage is the 3.5" long action magazine is to short. If you use it as a single shot they work great. I have a 338 edge based on a savage as do many other folks around here.

Re: Savage 110 build?

Is a repeater possible with aftermarket bottom metal / magazine?

Thanks for the quick reply. Only savage chambered in 338 Lapua I know of is the BA, and buying one of those for a donor action wouldn't make much sense. Seemed like there was too many custom RUM savages running around for that to be true.

That is possible but I do not know of one. Researching as we speak. Someone knows and will hopefully chime in. in the mean time I am curious myself, but I really do not think it even matters with the big howitzer rounds. NOTHING I have shot with a 300 grain smk needed a follow up shot

Re: Savage 110 build?

There is a guy on this site and over on savage shooters that has designed a .338 specifically for the savage actions for use as a repeater. It is supposed to almost keep up with the edge, I can't for the life of me find the links but I know LTLR was helping with the testing. Any how you may look into that and/or shoot him a pm.

You are talking about the 338 SIN. It is a SinArms creation. From what I have heard Devin is a great guy to work with.
