    First, I was wondering if anyone has done one before? If so, did you have to get one of the long actions with a small shank or a large shank? Also, can they be made into repeaters, or will the length limit you to single loading? Thanks in advance.

    Yes, I've done two.

    Both, were small shank long actions.

    Yes, they can be made into repeaters with some extensive modifications.

    It is much easier to use them single shot.

    Here's my latest. Savage Long/short action. Stockade Pdog stock. McGowan 32" fluted #7 barrel. Ross Schuler brake. Threaded and chambered by Sin Arms.

    Here is one 9338 Edge) in a short action large Shank. This one has to be made as a single shot with all bullet weights. No back blast muscle brake by centershotrifles.com. Barrel is a 19" Benchmark 3 groove.

    The large shank rifle similer to the one previously posted is also a large shank and is a repeater without mods as long as you do not use the bullets designed for target shooting above 250 grain.
