    Savage Upgrade Advice

    Sounds like its an older model Savage, probably one of the flat back models. Nothing special to look at but they sure can shoot when done up properly. 1. Can't go wrong with any of the big-name pre-fits. I have had excellent results with both Mcgowen, and Criterion and are more readily available. Contact Jim at Northlands Shooters supply for barrels. 2. Unless you plan on shooting the 195-197 class bullets the normal 9 twist is sufficient for anything from 120-180gr. Contour is completely up to you, I personally like a magnum contour barrel. 3. Depends on what route you go with the barrel. If you find a pre-fit in stock that matches your criteria but is not threaded take it to a smith for brake fitment. If you are having to custom order one just as well have them thread it for you while they are at it. Mcgowen actually offers a few different styles of brakes for install. 4. Stocks are definitely the downside to a Savage. There are not a whole lot of options out there, especially for a long action. Boyds will give you the most options, Bell & Carlson may offer one as well as Hogue or Choate but those get a bit heavy. 5. I would definitely upgrade the trigger with a Rifle Basix Sav-1. You can pick them up for around $90 if you shop around. Great trigger for the money and an upgrade I wouldn't pass on especially when putting the amount of money into the project that you already are. Here is a few links for you to look at for in-stock barrels and other Savage goodies. http://www.gunshack.com/savage-parts http://thebarreloutlet.com/ http://northlandshooterssupply.com/
  4. Depending on the powder used there shouldn't be much if any movement. Elevation difference would be a much bigger concern.

    I have a like new Fox Pro Wildfire predator call. I won this in a raffle a few years back and I bet I have only used it 3 maybe 4 times. Asking $100 and will ship anywhere in AZ for that price. Attached is a photo I found online of the model I have.

    What Caliber For Rebarrel?

    I say stick with the .257 Weatherby, especially if you re-load you already have all the stuff for it.

    Savage stock

    As long as you have a center feed style action this should work fine. The only issue maybe if you have a top/side bolt release or a bottom bolt release. This particular stock looks to be set up for the top/side version.

    New rifle build 6.5 300wsm

    I have built quite a few of them. Great cartridge and performance. The only downside to this cartridge is having to neck down .270WSM brass and turning the necks. Other than that its all positive. Better quality brass available than the crappy Hornady for the PRC and more widely available and cheaper than the SAUM and better velocity than both of them. Sweet spot with the 140s seems to be right around the 3150fps mark. H1000 and Retumbo work well.
