Gear,
Running 3.785 COAL. A little milling in the feed ramp area should do it.

It's not worth it, just run it as single shot and seat the bullets out as far as you want. For long range shooting you don't need a repeater anyways. I just put a shell holder on the stock and drop one in one at a time. Single shot is also a good way to go because your rounds in the Mag won't have the bullet tips beat up and deformed.

Too late.

Bottom metal and stock are already ordered. Bottom metal already shipped. Guess I'll just have to see what this all looks like when I get all the parts. I appreciate everyone's input thus far. My first "Savage Build" is beginning to become quite the learning experience. I wish I hadn't fallen in love with this wildcat. Too many variables.

Could you PM me what they are asking for the bottom metal and mag, I would really like to get something workable for a 338 RUM right in the 3.8 range as well for a Savage. I shoot them at the range single shot but I really like a DBM when hunting!!!!

More than a little in my opinion. A center feed mag opening is only 3.5". Stagger feeds are even less.

Remember, the more you mill into the feed ramp, the weaker your lower lug abutment is going to be.

If you modify the CF box mag you can nearly get 3.8 without milling on the action at all, my good calipers are at the shop but my bad pair at home shows something around 3.750 from the bolt face to the feed ramp.
