savage. 338 lapua barrel and bolt switch. Had this post in the gunsmithing forum with no replies. Maybe its just a bad idea. I've been looking for information about the savage. 338 BA and HS models available in both 300 win and. 338 lapua. Have heard they use the same action with a different bolt and magazine. Haven't really gotten a defined answer on the issue. What i have in mind is an HS .338 lapua with a second bolt and barrel to give me options. Would like to start with a 6.5 stw as a second option with others added down the road to suit my current whim. Was really wondering if anybody else had this idea or had heard of anybody doing it?
