Also what is the specs on the barrel nut torque?
It is a free spin in against a GO headspace gage.
The nut holds it in place.
Savage says 70 ft/lbs on the nut.
It doesn't need to be that tight though.
Probably 45-50 isn't going to come loose by itself.
I am swapping out a 270 for my new McGowen barrel from
Savage-Barrels.com in 6.5x55mm.
New experience for me, looking forward to the conversion.
Don't know what I'm going to do with the 270 barrel though.
Swap it for a 6x55mm wildcat bbl, of course, & pick up a .22" PPC bbl in the deal... : )
Boy, didn't expect that comment!
I always thought the 6.5x55mm caliber was liked on this forum.
To each his own.
We love him but he is still a Grouch
