The 223 does not have a different action, only a different bolt head. There are 2 different thread diameters that Savage uses on it's barrels. A large shank and a small shank, they are not dependent on caliber. You have a target action which is a large shank.
Either way it doesn't matter to you, unless you decide to buy a new barrel, then you need a large shank...
