If you think about it, it could ether help or hurt depending on which way the error on the lug
went. On the other hand a new/true lug can only help because it does not exaggerate any
out of squareness.

The way I feel about it ,Once you have the action off the barrel you might as well squair it and
use a good lug.

There are no free rides to accuracy.

Okay, I think you guys have convinced me. Do you know who would square the face of my action?

If you're asking for a gunsmith recommendation, you cannot go wrong with any of the sponsor smiths here ... one of them already responded on this post.

Good luck!

I am also curious about this and new to smithing as well. With SHarp Shooter Supply lug the thickness is like .240" thick. Would this cause any issues with the engagement of the barrel nut? What other adjustments would need to be made when putting back together? Head space?

Re: Savage recoil lug??

I haven't barreled up a Savage, but I would set it up like a Remington and not use the barrel nut at all. One advantage to me is that the reduced diameter (weaker) threaded tenon is much shorter if you use the remington setup. Leaves more metal in the chamber area out in front of the receiver.
