Thanks. Nice of you to say.
Coincidentally, I had a package full of CBI stuff show up from Jim today.
To the OP- Your Savage can be almost anything you want it to be. I have an action that started life as a 308, I turned it into a 32" barreled fire breathing 338 Edge. I've also turned a stagger feed 7mm mag into a centerfeed 223.
Savage is a great platform for anyone who likes to tinker with their own stuff.
