Biggest chambering for 110 Savage Action

What is the biggest, best shooting round I can make work in a 110 Savage Magnum long action gun? Is the 338 RUM a decent round? It sounds like it's fading in popularity though...

Thanks.

338 RUM would be no problem on that action.
The 338 RUM is a great round.
I don't know if it's fading or not, but it is shadowed by the 338 Edge.
Both perform very well.
Check out AJ Peacocks 338 Edge on a Savage action.

Re: Biggest chambering for 110 Savage Action

If its set up with the conventional shoulder like the Remington you can chamber it in any caliber that the Rem 700 can handle.

The 338 Edge is a 300 RUM necked up to 338 , it has a bit more power than the regular 338 RUM.
The 338 Lapua is another great 338 round and the Ackley improved version adds to that performance , with a 28"-30" barrel you should be able to get 3000 fps with the 300 gr Sierra Match King.

The caliber choice has little to do with the rounds accuracy ,I've seen the little 6mmBR necked up to shoot 338 bullets and had steller accuracy all the way up to the 338-408 wildcats , as long as the chamber is cut well and your reloading process is correct then the weapon should shoot fine.

Here is the link to AJ's Edge , looks to have a barrel nut also , it is a larger shank though to that does add a little bit of extra beef arround the case , but if its setup with a conventional shoulder then it doesen't matter.

Savage 338 Edge, wow! does it shoot!

Coolest part is that he did it in a short action.

James, is there really more beef around the chamber in a large shank? The OD of the action and barrel nut are the same either way. Large shank has a thicker barrel tennon and a thinner nut. Small shank has thinner tennon but a thicker nut. Seems to me that they are about equal.

Not trying to start an argument. I'd just like to hear your opinion.

I didn't realize the 338 Lapua would work. Is a different bolt required?

Thanks for the info.
