Thank you Makatak. I've been wanting a setup like this for a few seasons now. I won't be able to do any shooting for a little while yet, though. I'm waiting on a magnum size bolt head from Sharp Shooter Supply as well as a heavy (18 lbs.) long range stock from same. You can bet I'll be posting my results when I get to burn some powder.

The nut is from the action, but they are also available from Fred Moreo at Sharp Shooter Supply (http://www.varminthunters.com/sshooter/
). The barrel is pre-threaded and pre-chambered. Including the muzzle brake it cost just over $400. It was delivered five weeks from order date.
That's really all you have to do, get the barrel, spin the nut on, mount the barrel, headspace with a piece of resized brass, and tighten. Savage is a po man's switch barrel.
