Re: .300 Savage Build (Need Help)

Check into what you can accomplish with some lapping compound before you screw em together. I usually see a 25-50% decrease in group size with some basement bathtub truing. Every savage Ive fooled with has been truable with nothing more than lapping. It may get a true smith to disagree but you can build .25moa savages like that without a lathe. Savageshooters will detail much of what can be done.

Since I don't have the new barrel in my hands, nor the nut wrench. I'm not sure where you are talking about lapping? Could you be Extremely Specific? Please.

I've never lapped the lugs on my Savage. I have had good success with accuracy. Mine shoots .25MOA quite often, sometimes smaller if I do my part.

Re: .300 Savage Build (Need Help)

Just ordered my FFP Viper PST from Camera Land. They had it in stock so, I should get it in a few days.

However I don't know if I'll ever see my Manners stock.... Only like 12 more weeks to go before I might get it...

Barrel is being made by McGowen.

Can't wait to look through my new scope

Lapping action face,recoil lug,nut and lugs. Best to check on savage shooters.com. All the info is there.
Basically you true the aforementioned parts using lapping compound. A true smith will argue that a lathe is needed but it sure seems to produce a good accuracy gain on most guns for about $10. I just like to do it myself and build guns that will hang with $4k rigs at LRH.
