338 lapua Build advice sav 110/stevens 200

hi Guy's,
Looking for some advice on using a Std (Small shank) barrel and action for a .338 lapua, I recently purchased a Stevens 200 in 300 win mag after being told by savage That all magnum actions used the Large thread, after removing the barrel i realized that was not true ,as mine has a Small ahank thread. I have talked to a couple of barrel mfgs and they say they have built both types, I have checked presssure ratings on the lapua (61000) and the 300 win mag (64000) So my thinking is the lapua being slightly under the 300's rated pressure it should be ok . Any advice or insight greatly appreciatted.
One other thing, i have also asked to have a Rem 700 rebarreled in the .338 lapua (older 30-06) and have been told that is no problem for the 700 action , it too has a Similar size barrel thread 1.062 X 16TPI compared to the Savage 1.062x20TPI so if it's ok in a Remmie with similar size threads wouldnt it be ok in a savage?

Thanks in advance

Matt

My Savage 110 7mm Rem mag is a standard shank and am doing a rebuild also. I am not 100% sure what caliber I am going to choose. What kind of stock are you using for your new rifle. If you are building a heavy hitter I would recommend using something better than savages tupperware stocks.

1 more thing if memory serves the 338 Lapua requires a .585 boltface and I BELIEVE the savages only go up to .540 The bolt face may have to be machined open but I don't know how that will effect the structural integrity of the boltface to keep the firearm safe

IMHO...Build a 338RUM or 338Edge on the Savage.

Getting a 338Lapua to work in the Savage isn't worth the effort.

Suprising that Savage said that all magnums were large shank. Current production, only the short magnums are large.

Re: 338 lapua Build advice sav 110/stevens 200

one of the reasons I am considering the Lapua is because i already have a 7mm rum, 338rum and a 300 rum, thought something different would be nice. What other problems would i encounter using the savage? I have already Machined the boltface, only had to bore it .020 per side, total of .040 to get the correct dimension. I am going to be using an aftermarket stock, most likely it will be an HS Precision . Barrel I am looking at will be slightly heavier than sendero/Varmint and 28 Inch and be threaded for a Brake, Trigger will be a Timney.

I had a nice long response then my internet crapped out so heres the short version

Kevin at stockade gun stocks makes stocks SPECIFICALLY for savages. Very knowledgeable but str8 and to the point and BLUNT. I have 2 of his stocks and couldnt be happier. Get a heavy duty recoil lug either from SSS or from Kevin. SSS's trigger is FANTASTIC I have 1 and will be getting another for my build. Here are both of their websites . If you decide on the Stockade which I KNOW you willlove. Tell Kevin NOT to put an Uncle Mikes recoil pad on the stock, get a grind to fit Pachmayr or Magnum Limbsaver
