Would it make it more accurate if it had accustock?
Charlie,Instead of buying another complete rifle,you could just buy a 338WM barrel and change out the bolt head on the 30/06,and have everything you want in just one rifle.
On a Savage,you can swap barrels out in just a few minutes with an Action wrench and a barrel nut wrench.You can just change the bolt head out to the correct size,or buy another bolt set up for the 338WM.
Or you could get a 338-06 barrel,and then the barrel is all that you would need to change on the rifle,but you would need to load your own ammo,resizing the necks for .338 bullets.
