I've got a BIG 6.5mm barrel that I need to do something with. It's a 30" straight cylinder Shillen SS Match chambered in 6.5-06 with only about 100rds down the pipe. I've also got a Savage 110 series action that need a barrel! Right now this barrel is on a Mauser 98 action...I know (now) that this is too much barrel for this action to handle with the current bedding arrangement (simply has the action bedded). So instead of trying to make it work with the Mauser action, I'd like to have it installed on the Savage and a smaller .30 cal barrel threaded on the Mauser. The question...can the Savage handle a barrel this big?? What stock and bedding would you use?? Also, can the Mauser handle a 29" .30 cal tube with 1" muzzle diameter?? The action has a single shot plate installed for the follower and one piece Leupold base to try and help stiffen it. The wood laminate stock that the Mauser currently sits in has a .75" aluminum bedding plate in the bottom that the action is bedded to and bolted through...so I'd like to use this stock to save a few bucks if you fellas think it is any good. Input please!!! The snow is making me want to tinker with guns!!!
