Yeah, I'm thinking your right. Not a good idea, that combination. And, lots of lessons learned.Ya, that action won't handle that level of a chambering even without the over load, honestly that was just a flat out bad idea from the word go!! The ONLY savage action that can handle that class chambering is the Lapua action!!
That said .004 isn't horrible and just a clean up pass in the trying jig and that's not an issue, the barrel swelling though could crack the front ring, for the money just scrap the whole mess and take the lesson!!
