    Re: WTS Savage large shank 260 Rem barrel

    I am not a savge guy but I own one, in 308 winchester its built on a long action and is an older 110 tactical model. I dont know about shank size so maybe you can tell me if it will work or some one else will chime in?

    Re: WTS Savage large shank 260 Rem barrel

    If it is a 308 I'm almost positive it is a standard shank . The 260 barrel is one I had made for a WSM action I had. Savage WSM actions use a larger shank in order to increase chamber wall thickness.
    That being said , If you have a good smith that you trust the barrel shank could be turned down and re-threaded for your action .

    I think he was using his 22-250 bolt, but new bolt heads are cheap for savages.....$30 I think from midway......

    I had the barrel shooting 1/2 inch at 200 yds ( 140 A-Max and 42.7 grains H-4350 ) and could maybe do a little better with somemore tweaking . I'll look and see if I have any targets but I'm in the process of moving and stuff is everywhere.
