Re: Which long action savage is a large shank

A side note, not all Rum and WSM actions were large shank. I have a 116 300 Rum that is a small shank and I have seen others. But as geargrinder has said the small shank actions are perfectly fine for rum/wsm builds.

Yes, Alaskan Brush and Bear Hunter in the Specialty series. Plus a couple offerings in the Package and Weather Warrior series as well.

I doubt they get the same heat treat as the Lapua actions. Especially not on the stainless actions.

Yup, they've done some goofy things in that era. I've also run across several 300win's that were CRF.

Couple of my best shooting RUM's on small shanks were chambered by Sinarms. Thanks Devin.
