Sigh. Yet another term I'm lacking on; What is controlled feeding?

bolt action Mauser type feeding system. captures the round when it picks if up from the magazine, controlling it through feeding, firing and ejection. once it picks up the round, you can hold the rifle upside down and the round won't fall out.

on actions like a Remington M700 and the Savages, the round is merely pushed from the magazine into the chamber and isn't captured until the bolt is closed which brings our via the extractor then ejects it.

It means it has an extractor that grips the round while its being fed into the chamber and retains positive control as its extracted until the rim hits the ejector. Drawback is in some designs it is difficult to single feed reliably. Control feeds don't jam under normal conditions and operation.

Push feed means it pushes the round into the chamber and has no control over what the round is doing until the bolt is locked in place. Jams can happen with this design but its easy to single feed.

Anyone serious about hunting dangerous game and likes to live uses control round feed rifles. They pretty much eliminate jams caused by stress and the fumbling when repeat shots on charging animals like buffalo lions rhino elephant are needed. No sane person hunts dangerous game with push feed rifles.

if you decide to go with building a Savage, pick Hillbilly's brain as he knows them much better than i do. he is the person here i would defer to on building the Savages. he won't steer you wrong for sure.
I sent Mr. Hillbilly a pm. After reading about the savages from you, him and a couple others, I spent several hours on the Innerweb. Being able to work as you say "less reliant upon lathes and special tools" was the selling point. ( I have enough ar tools) My friend the Remingtion man will have lost a customer. I sill need to do a lot of homework, but being retired does have its benefits. Caliber of choice will be somewhere between 260 and 308. Thanks for the push

like i said, don't get me wrong as i still like the M700's, but compared to the Savages as far as building them, the M700's are much more labor intensive and in need of special tools than the Savages. i think it's pretty cool that a person can build a Savage at home with a few tools and some time and make a very accurate and reliable rifle.

i wish you luck and look forward to seeing what you decide to build. another nice feature of the Savages, is with a few barrels you can have many different calibers and change them out yourself at home.

I can think of about 10,000 things I'd rather attempt than changing out a Rem 700 barrel! Included in the list:

- clean the toilet with my bare hands
- walk thru broken glass
- listen to "It Takes A Village" on cd, narrated by HRC

wait. scratch #3. I would rather submit to torture than do that. Come to think of it, that WOULD be torture!
