I don't know why it takes you to a blank page works fine for me. Copy this link and paste it to your address bar.

First - Nice shooting. And nice build.

Did it only take you about a week to get the Shilen for it and did it come threaded and chambered? I'm am about to order a couple new barrels.

BTW - Squaring the bolt and action is about a waste of time on a Savage because they have a floating bolt head. If you were serious competition you could maybe do some timing and a little work, but for anything short of that you don't need it as evidenced by the groups in this post. That's why i build on a Savage, to save money or machining, easy barrel changes, etc. It has it's advantages. Not in love with Savage myself but pretty cost effective to have a stack of barrels as big as a school bus in lieu of a stack of custom rifles. I don't like being married if even not permanently to one caliber and you can swap on a Savage like changing underwear after you've done it a few times.

When you move to the next revolution in a match and you don't return to zero it's hard to see your hits when they are 6ft over the target ymmv

Goat killer, I ordered that barrel from midway, they had it in stock. I've only put about 25 down it so far and probably gonna do some more today.

Updating the savage build, this rifle shoots, but I'm wanting to step it up to the next level, so I'm going to have it rechambered to a 300wsm to shoot the heavier 225gr ELD match bullets. Also I will use it to hunt with on some of the longer shots I may encounter. Planning on shooting either the 200 gr sierra or the 212gr Eld x.

What all is involved in the rechamber? I assume you'll replace the bolt head? What about the magazine?

Replace the bolt head, and I'm getting the chamber reamed to the wsm, magazine should be fine. That should be it, I will probly be one of few that has a long action 300wsm savage 110.

Hmmm, so no work to the feed rails to get those fat cases to feed?

I talked to a gunsmith and he said possibly may have to but not sure, he said it wasn't a big deal if he had to.

What would the advantage of a long action 300WSM vs 300 Win Mag be?
I've always understood it is best to scale caliber to action length.

Good deal. With long action, you should be able to stick those long pills way out there assuming it's not short throated. You already know you have a good tube so she ought to shoot.

You really don't know much about customizing guns do you, as 87db said above, you can seat heavy long bullets out to touch the lands. Less case to bullet contact equals less pressure, more powder, more velocity and better accuracy.

This plus with a savage you can technically make a switch barrel rifle relatively cheap and not be constrained to action length. Plus there is not really that much difference in a short action vs a long action in terms of weight or length. ... that is unless you are RH Clark grin

Three 3 shot groups I shot today at 100. Load was 168 Amax over 46gr Varget, not to shabby for damn ole savage. Two lower groups are 150 nosler ballistic tips that I'll use for hunting.




And here two 3 shot groups with 150 nosler ballistic tips.



As you can see above I was 1/4" left, made a 1 click adjustment and should be good on the ballistic tips.
