    Modify a blind mag or run it single shot if OAL is a problem. What can't you find?

    IIRC, CDI makes a bottom metal that uses AICS 300win magazines that will allow 3.6". But, something will have to change on your action. The magazine opening is only 3.5".

    Check out Stockade stocks. McMillian, H-S will make and have long action available I believe for Savage. CDI is a good suggestion. Stockade Stocks also make their own bottom metal that might oblige. That is the only problem with Savage. They have a very limited market for LA stocks. They are out there.
