Ok...any of you Savage shooters out here know if the .308 10FCP Savage is a large or small shank?

I have a opportunity to pic one of the 10FCP's in the McMillan A5 stocks for a REALLY good (read give away) price.
But I do not want a .308 so I want to swap the barrel out but need to know what shank that action uses.

Take care,Stan

Stan it's a small shank, IIRC the only large shanks were used in WSM, RUM & SAUM calibers as factory offerings, and the Precision target action uses a large shank barrel as well.

Thanks Greg.
I briefly had a model 12 LRPV and that was a large shank target action.

Take care,Stan

Get it. You'll love it. AW mags are just around the corner for it too.
