    I need some suggestions. I've got a short action Savage with a 24" heavy barrel. I put a Shilen barrel 6mm Rem on it. Blind mag, with top release. It has the economical black plastic blind mag varmint stock. It started as a 20" patrol I think.
    I would like to put it into something a little better. I am not a fan of Savage DBMs so would do something diff. I was wondering who makes good stock/bottom metal or chassis for this. Thanks!

    rib? Or do you mean the rear sight base (which is spanning the loading port).

    It began life as a blind magazine 22-250. I used a Shilen Select Match barrel, from Northland Shooting Supply and one of their barrel nuts to rebarrel it to a .260 Remington. I replaced the factory trigger with a Rifle Basix trigger, contacted PDC Custom and had Craig lay out the stock so that it would be useful for 3 position shooting. The PDC stocks make use of AICS magazines; ISSF rules require single loading - I used a Bob Sled to accomplish the single loading aspect. A MEC Spy rear sight, and a Centra front sight, and a standard Champions Choice mirage band finish everything off.

    Practice with it at the 300M Nat'ls in MN. proved interesting. I fired one of my highest practice scores ever; unfortunately the loose nut behind the trigger rear his ugly head on Match Day One, and I fired below my normal practice score, putting out of contention for anything other than a good handshake.

    I recently put a Savage 11 .308 on a Oryx chassis. I am really impressed. Consistently less than .5 moa.

    I’m assuming he’s asking about the mirage shield.

    You will need to know your action screw spacing also IME with Savage stocks (not chassis ) the bolt release information (top or bottom) will be asked.

    The MDT LSS chassis for the Savage short action will accept either the 4.4” or the 4.27” action screw spacing. I think well of them for most folk’s needs, but I definitely encourage using the XL version; the short forearm of the original makes the rifle a little more prone to wobble on a front rest / bipod if you’re using longer / heavier barrels.

    I'll preface by saying you can probably afford a nicer stock, BUT I really like the Choate Tacitcal Stock I got for my Savage 10 FCP in .308. It's definitely heavy but I knew that going in. I had to do some minor dremmeling to get it to fit properly but the V block bedding built in is pretty nifty. IMO, it's a nicer stock than the price would indicate. Mine is the basic model that runs around $200 (the first link), but they do offer a "custom" version that has an adjustable cheek piece and butt pad (the 2nd link).
