Re: My 284 win

Riley,

Fill me in on the action changes you mentioned. I know very little about the Savage action.

Maybe the changes will bring me around.....

Re: My 284 win

The bolt release is on the bottom infront of the trigger guard, and they changed the recoil lug, i dont know what exactly what they did with the recoil lug but i was told that my an employee from stockystocks. The action feeds great with the 284 win case and i have PLENTY of room in the mag, i have about .4" of room left in the mag with the 162 amax touching the lands, with the 195 berger i should have about .1" left in the mag with it touching the lands.

Re: My 284 win

Riley, are you sure about the stock thing, there are some differences but I'm fairly sure that it's GTG. It looks like the recoil lug is aftermarket as well, I haven't done the Accustock yet so I can't say for sure but a quick search of Savage shooters yield several threads that indicate just an easy swap.

Re: My 284 win

Its the factory recoil lug, he just removed the nut. I will do some more looking. We are supposed to be getting around 18" of snow today and so far we have about 14" So it might be a while until i get some shooting done.
