Re: Savage action
You can do a .338 Edge on a small shank. I did mine on a small shank, but it's done with a shoulder on the barrel and no barrel lock nut. If you call Pac-Nor, they will build a barrel in .338-300 ultra mag (338 edge) that uses the locknut in a small shank, if that's the way you want to go, I think I called shillen about a barrel as well and they said they'd do it in the small shank, but that may have been in 300 ultramag, not sure if they have an edge reamer. In the end I just threaded and chambered a barrel myself. Even being a long action, You'll still probably end up with it being a single shot so as to be able to seat the bullets out long. I've been toying with the idea of making my own bottom metal for my savage for a Wyatt's detachable box mag that's intended for the Remington 700. One of these days I'll bite the bullet and order a magazine and see if it's possible.
