Re: savage build which action???

I just finished a 7-300WSM built on a Savage DBM Long action. I had my reamer cut to suit the 180 Bergers and have been very pleased. Mine was a 300WM originally and it feeds slick as can be.

Parts list:

Savage DBM Long action, trued and timed, bolt interrupted fluting
Northlander Recoil Lug
Brux #5 contour Barrel Interupted Fluting 27"
Boyd's featherweight thumbhole stock, inlet for the DBM metal
Devcon, and Pillar bedded by me
Ken Farrel Rings and Bases
Leupold Mk4 4.5x14x50 scope

Half minute at 400yrds, and I'm not quite done with load development.

Tank,
I'd also like to hear about your rifle a bit as well.

Both rifles sound interesting. I'm thinking of a savage but am also toying with the action size debate.

Thanks,
Chris
Mine was a 116FLHSSin 7mmRM. Took the barrel off and put on my 26" small shank Krieger (300wsm) varmint taper. Replaced the hinged bottom metal with a long action DBM. Each mag holds 3 rounds. The centerfeed feeds very well. Much better than the old staggerfeeds.

I'll swap stocks next. Looking at the new Choate tacticals as soon as the LA LH ones are available.

I just picked up a new 111 fhns for 329.00 on close out. Im thinking stockade stock and medium contour barrel in 7wsm. How hard will it be to convert to DBM?

Couldn't be easier. The DBM swaps straight in place of the hinged floor plate.

Just remember to have Kevin inlet the stock for it.
