Strykervc,

While not quite the same , I built a 243 on a 270 116 action and have had no feeding problems.

    mkg,

    Thanks for the feedback! I should be fine then because the 308 is the parent cartridge for the 243, as is the 30-06 for the 270. Is your 116 an internal mag, hinged floorplate, or the detachable mag?

    FYSA, McGowan and Pacnor makes pre-fit barrels for Savage.

    Good luck!

    since you are wanting a 308 and am gonna get a lug from Northlander, you might as well get one of his Shilen or Mcgowen pre-fit barrels he has in stock. Then you dont have to wait 16 weeks for it.

    Ive got 2 McGowen 308's from Jim and they are both lasers, shooting an avg in the mid to high .3's, with many in the .2's.
    Jim is a great guy to deal with too, and also has Savage and Stevens actions for sale. Kina like a one-stop shop for what youre looking to do.

    heres the link to his inventory.
