Savage 12 fv build?

Postby Mallard1123 » Wed Jun 29, 2016 7:54 pm

I'm new to building a rifle and I want to build a 450bm out of a savage 12fv. I want to order my barrel from mcgowen if he calls me back. After I order the barrel and have it shipped is their anything else I need to do? Will a .308win bolt face be ok to use for the 450bm and is there anything else I have to worry about?

GTG on the 308 case head size.

barrel wrench

go/no go gauges

I have never seen a Savage done on a blind magazine, so you may or may not have some feeding issues that might need tweaking.

where are you located?

was just thru Oxford yesterday!

you might not need to do anything with the mag box or follower, I was just tossing it out as a potential problem seeing your going to be feeding a straight walled cartridge.

fwiw, when I did my Remington 700, there were no issues with the stock 308 follower and FTX bullets, XTP's were hit or miss till I swapped that follower with a WSM size which feeds both flawlessly now.

There is a guy in Grand Blanc that puts a bunch of Savages together, Norm Fox I think is his name. He'd have way more insight than me on a Savage.
