    Pac-Nor and some others will thread and chamber one for your Savage.

    Sharp Shooters Supply may have been the ones that had them already prechambered for the Savage, I still haven't called them to ask. I'm not sure what barrels they use either.

    Sharp Shooter Supply uses Douglas barrels and I'm not sure if Fred has that reamer but as with any it could be rented.

    Pac-Nor will do it as with any decient gunsmith I would think.

    How do you get a bolt face to fit the lapua brass? Does savage make one to fit any of the really big cases ? Ebb

    The gun smith will take your bolt face and hone it out. Savage doesn,t make one that big. Thanks Reed
