338 Lapua 110 FCP HS Precision, is it as modular as other savages?

I've been trying to find out if one can change a savage 338lm to other calibers such as a 7mm rem mag, .308 etc with the same ease (bolt face,follower,barrel) as other savage rifles in more conventional starting platforms such as just about any long action savage or stevens.
I have found a good deal on the rifle named in the title, but I was thinking of a round thats more freindly on the pocketbook and realistic as a do all kind of gun.
Thanks for any info.

Kind of.

It has a regular long action barrel, so it will take any long action bolt head. 30-06 sized bolt heads, magnums, and up to the Lapua.

The down side it that it is a large shank barrel. You'll either have to have one made in the caliber you want, or you'll have to use a barrel made for target action or a WSM barrel.
