Large or small shank action?

Hi, I've got a savage model 111 long action with a magnum bolt face that I'm going to build into a 264 win mag and when I look at barrel websites I find that there is a large and a small shank action how do I know which it is that I have? any help would be greatly appreciated

    You can call Savage and give them the serial #. They will tell you for sure which it is.

    A large shank has a step down just past the nut then the contour continues from there, a small shank just comes out straight from the nut.
