I was just given a Bell & Carlson Medalist Tactical stock for a savage 308,  so I am now looking to try and make it a complete assembly. Where could I find the rest like the bolt and barrel and trigger assembly or would it be cheaper to by just a savage gun and switch out the stocks.

Thanks,
Eddie

easier and more selection--just by the entire unit and switch it out.

i agree with dale here as well plus im not a real fan of the .308 so any caliber other than .308 would work for me.

you know its funny i dont care for the .308 but all of the off shutes  off that case i like 7-08 awesome 260 awesome the .243 awesome the .338 federal has yet to be proven.

 

my choice of caliber right now is 280rem but im thinking savage doesnt chamber that, i am really happy with my 300wsm and the 7mm wsm would be a solid performer in any field with most any north american game.

according to federal its suppose to be comparable to the 7mm mag ballistically which i cannot fathom, just dont see how that could be possible but they may be onto something.

i checked a back issue of rifleshooter i had and they did an article on the 338 fed and they said that the 338 out performs a 30-06 shooting a 180 gr bullet out to 200yds after that the 30-06 walks away but your also talking about a long action vs a shorter one. and of course as with all .308 spawned cases its very accurate, still not my cup of tea however. if i want a .338 my first choice is the .338 mag

the stock a tactical suggest a use other than hunting, its hard to beat the selection of 308 bullets, however the main point here is all the other stuff -scope, action ect. that is more important. personally I'd go 6x47, 250 x6 or 22,250 with a really fast twist for 75 gr AMax
