Re: Savage Short Action???
You can build a WSM on a short action, but there are some compromises to be made.
The WSM uses a control feed bolt head, this ensures reliable feeding from the magazine. The actions used for this round have a mechanical type ejector, not the plunger style used in the bolt head of the push feed actions.
So if you use a push feed action you will need to switch over to a push feed mag bolt head, works great for a single shot, not so reliable trying to feed from a magazine.
Other option is to have a slot milled in the push feed action so you can install the mechanical type ejector. I haven't priced that option but I'd guess its pricey.
Did you start with WSM actions? If not are yours single shot or repeaters and how did you work around the feeding/ejection issues? Might help me out on fiture projects.
Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.
