Re: Rem 700 or Savage precision target action for .338 edge
The Remington bolt-face lock-up might be stronger, but the Savage is definitely a stiffer action. It is a complete round action (machined in single feed ramp and bridged reciever), it also beds into the stock with 3 screws (not 2). I love the Savage action, I have one in 22-250 and I'm going to build a 6mm NormaBR on one also, but I probably would have built your caliber on a Rem action myself, due to the length of the cartridge (Or maybe a standard Savage long action). If it was a short action, the Savage Target action is the way to go.
Just buy the Savage action and dremel the port longer lol lol lol (don't take this statement too seriously lol).
