Hey, fmsniper, That's a nice looking rifle. Do you by chance have any short mag cases laying around? I want to know if a 7MM SAUM or 7MM WSM
case will function properly in the Savage long action mag well.
This would really help me out if you could stuff a couple in the mag well and see if they pop out unexpectedly. Also check if they feed ok.
I want to build a 7MM WSM based on a long action and I am thinking the Savage would be the easiest and cheapest way to get there.
Buy the Savage 116FSAK in 300 RUM sell the barrel, buy a new barrel from SS with muzzle brake
, screw it on, headspace it, tighten the nut and away I go. No middle man to pay and no waiting.
Or I could keep the 300 RUM barrel since I have (250) 300 RUM Federal primed cases ...
Maybe I should just buy a lathe and get it over with.
