How many of you have done it, and is it safe???
I had a .300 RUM on a Stevens 200. I had some extraction issues, but that was due to the powder that I was using having temperature issues and was no fault of the action.
A claw extractor would not have had the same problem but I really don't think I would have had any problem at all if the pressures wouldn't have spiked. In fact I never had a problem as long as it was below 70 degrees outside!
I was running the 210 bergers so I didn't even try to set it up as a repeater.
I haven't heard of any safety issues and didn't get any sort of warning from the barrel maker about running the RUM in a small shank.
I've done a couple Edges, and several WSM's. All on small shanks. No problems.
I just got done building a 338 EDGE on a savage small shank action. Only 15 rounds down the barrel but no issues here.
What barrels are you guys using?
Shilen, Krieger, Douglas, McGowan, Hart, and Sin Arms.
I have about 800 rounds threw mine with no problems.
Sorry to butt in but what magazine are you guys using if any? Are you just going single shot?
In a Savage your best bet would be a single shot, but im sure someone else with more experience will help you out.
I am using a Shilen barrel on mine that sin arms did for me. I run mine as a single shot.
I also run a single shot. With a rifle of that magnitude it only takes one shot anyway.
So what do you all think would be the best pre fit barrel???
The 338 Sin would also be a consideration?
I have thought about the SIN but really have no need for the rifle to be a repeater. If I wanted to build a savage repeater I would most definitely build Devins 338 SIN.
