Project Thoughts/Advice

Given the time of year, the weather, and a case of cabin fever I've been giving some thought to my next project.

I'm thinking of putting together a 7mm WSM on a Savage long action. Originally tought a short action but after looking at factory ammo and how deep they seat the bullet I wanted the longer mag. for seating bullets out a ways. I realize I'll have to change the bolt head from the push feed to the controlled feed, but I'm thinking/hopeing that should about the only change if I start with a 110 in 7mm mag or a 300 wm.

I thought I'd try a Sharp Shooters Supply barrel (Douglas XX) in a 27" length, their trigger, and put it in their new Var-Tac stock.

Maybe I'm being overly optimistic but it seems like a simple enough project. Any comments, equipment choice reviews, or flaws in the plan are welcome. Might save me some cash.
Chris
