Re: Savage Actions available for you to build up as you wish

What machining is required to fit a barrel to one of these actions? I've never worked with Savage before so just thought I'd ask.
Will the .532 bolt face accept the 300 rum series cases? What is the biggest case you can use with their magnum sized actions?
Do they have two sized actions like Rems?
Thanks in advance
Dave

Re: Savage Actions available for you to build up as you wish

If you have Savage specific questions, head on over to www.savageshooters.com... a number of articles and whatnot that should answer a lot of your questions up front, plus a dedicated forum.

About the bolt face sizes, I don't know. But as far as fitting the barrel... zero machining required. Thats what the barrel nut is for. Buy a pre-threaded and chambered (PTC) barrel from Pac-Nor or Sharp Shooter Supply (Fred Moreo, Savage guru, stocks Douglass but can get other on request) and follow the instructions in the articles on the site. You can have a barrel made w/ a shoulder on the barrel ala Remchester and have it fitted by a gunsmith, if you want/need a heavier profile than a factory medium-varmint barrel.

HTH,

Monte

Savage lists calibers up to the 338 Win Mag and 300 Rem Ultra Mag. These are based off the .532 bolt face actions.
As was already mentioned, due to the screw in barrel design that allows you to screw on and head space your own new barrel, several shooters like the ease of use with these Savage actions. The .532 bolt face would be required to make up the magnum caliber you are asking about. You will also need the "Large Barrel Shank" if you are going to use one of the Savage WSM or Ultra Mag barrels.

You bring up an interesting point with barrel shank size. Im planning a project gun for the summer in a RUM based wildcat. You don't specify if these are large shank or small, or if they can be had in the crf boltface or only in the pushfeed. Iwas told by a tech with savage that the push feed has trouble feeding the RUM/WSM cases, hence the crf boltface. Is this a limited supply of are you going to have a steady flow?

These Savage Actions are available in either barrel shank size at this point, have both. It is my understanding that Savage employs the Controlled Round Feed or CRF series. As to availability, I presently have good inventory and can get more. The success of this effort will be based on customer support. If I see some actions that are not desired they will be dropped.

Re: Savage Actions

Hi Jim-

Being a lefty, I'm wondering if you have or can get the Stryker action in stainless as well? I've been toying with the thought of an inexpensive left bolt/right port rifle for a while now. Would the pricing be the same if available? Thank you.
