Rem 700 or Savage precision target action for .338 edge

going to build a .338 edge just wondering if there is much difference in these two actions as far as strength ? i know the savage is a short action i know i will have to remove the bolt to take out an unfired round adn im fine with that if there is an advantage to the savage action. i was thinking since its a short action it might be stiffer but its stainless and if i use a rem 700 i will use a chrome moly which is a harder steel so maybe this isnt true. i have never owned or shot anything made by savage this would be this first any info greatly appreciated. thanks

If interested, I have a new in box Savage action for sale here. Right bolt, Left Port.

As you said though, they are all short actions.

If yours isnthe in the for sale section I keep looking at it . I just sent payment for a rem 700 though due to the fact I couldn't find enough info on running the edge cartridge in the short action.

It goes without saying that you would have to remove the bolt to unload but I don't think you could actually load the Savage short action without removing the bolt first.

My RUM brass can be fed into it, without removing the bolt. I havent tried it on one that was loaded. But you are probably dead on ! It is a really short action it seems. They say even the 6.5x284's have to be unloaded by removing the bolt.
