    Exactly the same. Parts and procedures interchange.

    Thanks guys - that's really pretty weird that my original post is not even here on the thread, even though the thread shows that I'm the starter - worked out OK because my entire question is contained in the thread title, but weird.

    Anyhoo, that's it then - I'm pretty sure a Stephens action is going to be the base for my suppressed .338 Spectre project. Was previously going to run with a T/C Contender, but a firing pin strike is quieter than a hammer falling. Not to mention good accuracy is a bit easier to tweak out of a turnbolt with a FF bbl. :)

    What cartridge is a 338 Spectre based on? You might need an action designed for a large shank barrel. You might want to ask the experts on Savageshooters.com.

    Skinewmexico....

    The .338 spectre is based on the 10mm magnum case

    Update:

    Looks like I need a .415" or smaller bolt face. So a .223 rem Stephens 200 should work just fine. :)

    P.S. If anyone wants an entire thread with a .338 Spectre subject line, then start it, or ask me to start it, if there's interest in going into more detail at this time.
