Re: Savage action accurate ?

Castrating a Savage is purely aesthetic.

1000 yard accuracy will be affected much more by other components/assembly/ammo/shooter than by the "Savchestertonby" action you build on.

Funny, for the supposed benifits, the applied physics and mechanics 101, it doesn't seem to matter much out here in the 'real' world. Ya' just don't see many Savages w/barrel nuts show up at the LR shoots, in this 'neck of the woods', anyway.

I would have to agree with Shortgrass on this one, in fact I have never seen a bench rest
rifle with a barrel nut or a long range target/match rifle ether.

The barrel nut is there to allow an operator to assemble and head space the rifle without
the necessity of a gunsmith NOT TO INHANCE ACCURACY. I have worked on lots of Savages
and they all have these short cuts to improve the ease of assembly by a non skilled worker.
The fact that they will shoot as well as they do is a tribute to there barrel quality.

It is a great rifle for the price and in most cases they shoot well, and I'm all about getting
a hunter/shooter into as good a rifle as they can afford.

I hope I haven't offended any of the savage guys because It is just my opinion and we are all
entitled to our opinions. That's what makes this a great site, you can read many different
opinions and decide for your self.

Not trying to offend or "ruffle any feathers" with my earlier post, just an observation.

reason why is simple. Gunsmiths loose money by going with a nut. But if you check the factory benchrest shoots you will see the vast majority of rifles using barrel nuts. And if you go to an F Class shoot you will see lots of barrel nuts. If you got deep pockets and think your gunsmith can walk on water; then so be it.

Lastly the weak point in the barrel line is the root diameter of the barrel thread. It is not capable of securing a barrel in a shoulder lockup without flex. The weak point with a barrel nutted barrel is still the root diameter of the thread. But with the thread in tension it becomes part of the female (allbeit not 100%). That 1 1/4" diameter means little when the root diameter is flexing. Lastly if you think the shoulder seated barrel stays seated when you fire that .300 mag I have a bridge for sale.
