    WSM and RUM bolt heads are different from each other.

    Most likely a regular magnum bolt head is all you need.

    Which action are you using?

    The savage control feed bolt head is used on the savage RUMS and the WSMs and from everything I researched the SAUMs also should have the control feed head.

    My wsm was a controlled round feed. Do you need a magnum bolt head for a short action or a long action?

    That's why I asked what action you have. If you do not have a CRF action you cannot use a CRF bolt head.

    If you do have a CRF action, which one? Long or Short? They are different.

    Can't give you the right answer if you don't give enough information.
