But there is a way to still make it a "Switch Barrel Savage", the Larry Racine way!

Check out his website, he's been reworking/shooting Savages for years, long before the word Savage was to be spoken at or near a High Power/PALMA Match.

Re: 6mm BR by MCR

I've seen this and a few other methods before. I only meant that the customer had no plans of switching barrels around. Any rifle can be a switch barrel. What I meant was when I blueprint the action I oversize the action threads. The amount of oversize needs to be transferred to the barrel tennon diameter. If someone wanted to they could have several barrels cut to this size, threaded and chambered then easily switch barrels out. With oversizing the action threads and no barrel nut, a switch barrel using a pre-threaded, pre-chambered barrel would not be usable.

I also understand the customer had some good results with this rifle. .312" @ 200 yards and another bug hole group to match it.

Larry trued my action also, and the threads are .008-.010 over, all 4 barrels that I had him make for it fit and function perfect, I know that some factory produced barrel will not fit correct.

I started with a 112BTS (for those who don't know, it's a Long Action Single Shot late 90's production Targt Rifle, first version Target/Competition action) that he also has fit 3 bolts for, 1-Mag. (Factory .300 Win. Mag.)), 1-med(..308 case Family) and 1-Small for .223 Rem.

I've won local Club Titles, a State Championship and set a National Record with it, think he knows his stuff.
