Yep , the Savage is just as capible as the remington and if its already chambered for a RUM nothing else would "need" to be done , but you might be a little more limited to being able to seat the bullets out real far and still feed from the magazine as nobody as of yet makes a oversized mag box for the Savage. The thing to think about it that the Savage will always be a Savage and that will keep any resale to a minimun , but if don't plan of selling the gun later then its no big deal. Kirby Allen has built several of his big Wildcats on Savage actions , if I'm not mistaken i think at least one of his personal guns is built on a Savage.
Their are some very good stock out their as well From Stockade Gun Stocks , heck the Bell & Carlson Duramaxx stock is a great stock for the money.
