Thanks for all of the great info. I didn't know they use to build the RUMs on the small shank. That was what had me worried, I thought maybe the large shank was required. Looks like its time to sell some plasma and get this project started

I'm sure they switched to the large shank for a reason though!

If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.

My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives

It is my understanding that there have been issues with the barrel nut system on the savages in the ultra chamberings. Kirby has seen them first hand. These were on savage rum receivers with the larger shank. I can't remember if it was outright said, or if I have inferred, that the smaller shanks with the thicker nuts have not had the same problem. There are other advantages/disadvantages of using either reciever to start with.

i am in the process of building a 338 edge on a 110 action. it will be a single shot rifle. i already switched out the bolt head (5 min job as stated above). the only other part needed is the barrel. my configuration is as follows: SSS competition trigger, SSS 1/4" recoil lug, stockade tactical stock, shilen stainless steel super match varmint contour 28" barrel 1x10 twist. the receiver is a standard shank. call fred at SSS, he is a savage gunsmith expert.
