Re: Savage tang strength

subsonic, that guy knows nothing about proper bedding.

Any action that has big gaps in the bedding will bend under the load of tightening the action screws. Do the bedding and pillars properly and you better think in 100's of in-lbs before anything gives. Many times more force then you can hand torque.

The recoil lug on the savage actions will work just fine even if they are not pretty. Again, proper bedding is the key. Only time when this becomes a problem is when you start hanging 28" plus no taper barrels off the front. The action simple can't support that much weight well.

Then consider a barrel block or other form of support.
