I suspect that the action was held wrong.
I use the barrel vice and the action wrench on most actions. but on the Savage it is not
nessary to use a action wrench and with the poster sounding like he did not want to spend
the money holding the barrel is the easy way.
If the barrel is to be disposed of then he can just use a bench vice to hold the barrel for
disassembly and only have to buy a $30.00 wrench.
It is allways best to have the proper tools.
