Savage barrel thread size

Thinking of buying a 10fp mcmillan or 12 precision varmiter and would like to know if they have the larger size threads to accept WSM barrel.

Re: Savage barrel thread size

The Mcmillan does not, but the LRPV does..... If you want a WSM, I would suggest buying a target action, adding a barrel in caliber of your choice, and putting it in a compatable stock....(The only problem with the LRPV and target actions..... Three stock bolts instead of two)

Why is three stock bolts a problem?

You are really limited to the HS precision stock that comes from Savage, or a stock from SharpShooter Supply.

Re: Savage barrel thread size

I could buy a 12 BVSS in 300wsm and hope I get a shooter and add a better tigger, but are the stocks very good quality? I like the buy a target action and add a quality barrel and stock idea except I live in canada and shipping, duty and exchange can get quite expensive. Can you get the target action with a WSM bolt head? Could buy a 12 F/TR and a 300 WSM bolt head and barrel never hurts to have a spare .308 on hand.

Any thoughts would be appreciated, I want to make the right decision insted of kicking myself later.
