isnt a 3" block a little small for hanging the barrel off of? Or is the action mounted also? I have been eyeballing Shehanes barrel blocks, which his small is 6 in. To me part of the strength is from having a larger area and holes farther apart.

I have really been thinking about building a 36-38" barrel blocked savage with a non tapered 1.12" barrel for next years deer season.
