This last June when shooting my savage mod 12 .22-250 noticed some thing that seemed odd to me. seemed like the action was longer then it should be for a factory rifle, Did savage make some short action little longer, and what would the inside measurements be for a true SA from savage? Also when cycling bolt the round would sometime pop up and out of action or the tip of bullet would touch feed ramp and stop. Had to push round bac k and try again it would work or pop out of internal mag any Ideas, Factory ammo was used. REM 45grhp rifle

I can't say as to action length, but the feeding I believe you need to have the feed ramp polished. I had this problem and had a smith polish ramp, and no more probs.

Savage used to only build long actions, some they built with a short magazine though. Then they built some shorter actions, but not as short as the current ones. Make sure the follower isn't binding and the spring is in good condition, then tweak the feed lips on the mag box. Bullets with a big HP can be finicky when it comes to feeding.
