Re: SAVAGE SWITCH BARREL QUESTION

My envy matches the color of your gunstock.

That is a very nice setup. Let me know all the load and target details. I haven't had a 264 WinMag yet. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: SAVAGE SWITCH BARREL QUESTION

Lee,

Does Pacnor supply the ss nut or did you pick that up somewhere else? Is it threaded and chambered, it's hard to tell? How much did they charge?

I have a Striker I'd like to put a Loooong barrel on and it would be nice to get it all done from them, threaded and chambered so I can just stick it on when it shows up.

Re: SAVAGE SWITCH BARREL QUESTION

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.

Brent,
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.

Re: SAVAGE SWITCH BARREL QUESTION

Cool! It was chambered, threaded and had a brake installed for just over 400!! Damn that's pretty fair I'd say!

Sounds like they'll get to do one for me soon! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Your bbl nut looked stainless and your action CM, that's why I figured they might have supplied the SS nut too.

Let us know how it shoots.

Re: SAVAGE SWITCH BARREL QUESTION

The action was purchased several years ago, before the stainless actions were out. It's from a BVSS-S....CM action, SS barrel and nut.

Re: SAVAGE SWITCH BARREL QUESTION

Hi,
Damn nice shooter. (GREAT pics)
The only thing I probabily would change is the scope base. I would use one of the "Ken Farrell" one piece weaver bases, from Graf & sons, and with the 20* taper. You can see these at kenfarrell.com

Hope this helps.
C'ya. John.

Re: SAVAGE SWITCH BARREL QUESTION

The Burris inserts allow for up to 40 MOA adjustment by themselves. I figure that should be enough. I don't like the way the Burris Zee rings (for Weaver base) are attatched to the base either. I know I want to use the Signature rings, so I'm left with Dual Dovetail or Std. Which rings do you use with the Farrell base (I was considering using the Farrell base).
