Re: savage 110 .243 to 7mm or .300 wsm?

thanx for that link, had a lot of good information. is there and list of bullets weights and bc for various calibers. and maybe case specs and powder capacities, maybe that could help for. or do i have to figure that stuff out with a ballistics program and for just looking stuff up online?

Most bullet makers display their bullet info online. Here's one for Berger...

Berger Bullets

For specs on cartridges, including MV's for bullets of different weights, get a reloading manual. There is some good reloading info online as well.

Re: savage 110 .243 to 7mm or .300 wsm?

Not too long ago I looked at converting a Savage 10 (short action) in 308 to a 300 WSM. I determined that along with the magazine & follower, I would need to change the bolt head and baffle over to the CRF version. Savage puts the ejector for this in a little cut in the receiver (I guess there's no room for it in the bolt face when you go from PF to CRF), so I lined up a smith to do the work.

Next issue will be the barrel. Except for some early production runs, the savage 300WSMs are in what's called a "Large Shank" - that's the size of the part of the barrel that screws into the action. However, your action will most very likely be a "Small Shank". You will probably have a hard time finding the barrel, so you will have to look at a custom barrel.

Well, net is by the time I did the math, I was about $200 or so short of just buying a new rifle. New savages go for between $450 and $600 for a hunting gun. So that't what I did - just bought a new one, savage had already figured out the details ;)

Dunno if you would have the same problem converting to a 7mm.

Check out www.savageshooters.com. You might have to join to get to the answers you want (like $12/yr), but all the info is there. Lots of handy reference posts.

I would call Kevin Rayhill at Stockade gun stocks. He's a wiz in Savages and the WSM's. Really a good guy to deal with.

They're both about the best in anything to do with Savages. Plus they both are making stocks for the new centerfeeds and the precision actions.
