saavage question

OK I am getting a savage 10fcp HS. In 308 And I would like to get into switching barrells and trying new stuff out. My question is what do I need to know to do this safely? Obviously I will need go-nogo gauges and a nut wrench. Is there anything else? Also. Do I have a large shank or small shank?

Though I would suggest it.

They have step by step instructions on how to swap a barrel for a savage. The guys on that forum are fanatics about their savages and know a lot. It's a great site for those who wish to tinker with a savage.

Good luck!

Re: saavage question

Action wrench and a barrel nut wrench is all you need. You have a small shank action.

Re: saavage question

What is the difference in small shank and large shank? Other than size. Does it limit me to 308 based calibers ? What size breech would I order on a barrel? 1.25" ?

Re: saavage question

It will be a small shank. You'll also need an action wrench. Wheeler makes a cheap one that is decent.

That's about it.

Put the barreled action in the action wrench. Put the nut wrench on. Give the nut wrench a whack with a hammer. Spin the old barrel off. Start the new barrel. Put in the go-gauge. Spin the barrel all the way down. Tighten the nut. Check with the no-go or go with tape. Done.
