Re: Savage bolt head question

Thanks geargrinder, I have a rifle that was tweeked to feed a 45-70 and it got a little of and man that is frustrating, it'll spit 2 rounds out on your toes in the heat of battle.

I was thinking about getting a new center feed long action to try this build with, advoiding the machine work to the bottom of the action and maybe being able to tweek the CF lips. I need to get my hands on a 338 LM case and just go down to the store and play with it.

    I've got two centerfeed rifles, would build with one of them. Anyone know of a good way to make up a couple of dummy rounds of 338 norma without buying whole lots of brass or bullets? I think some places sell brass by the piece, but I have no bullets, would be looking for 300 SMKs.
