Re: Newbie with a factory Savage Barrel coming in the Mail Reply #15 – December 21, 2018, 11:06:29 AM A while back on the Savage Shooters there was a discussion or two on thread fit. Knowing it was a Savage barrel makes me think it probably was not a thread fit problem. But a very poor thread fit possibly could skew the chamber to bolt head fit. ??Thinking out loud.
