Get different action! Sell that one and buy large shank. www.savageshooters.com
has a forum and several vendors that sell the actions.
I guess I have a 26" Stainless Hart 300wsm and a 28" Stainless Shilen 7mmWSM tomato stakes.
Too bad, they shot really good too.
Anyone want to buy a LH Stainless Savage 112 action and two slightly used tomato stakes?
Just ribbin' ya BH.
Savage never had problems with the small shanks, even in the RUM's. They just felt that it gave a little more assurance with the thicker barrel.
I have heard of problems with the large shank barrel nuts splitting from hot RUM loads.
For me, I'll stick with a small shank. Even considering ordering a small shank 338 Edge.
