    I checked out the dimensions shown for the Cerrosafe casting and the closest I could come appeared to be a .250 Savage Improved. Various gunsmiths used different variations for their improved chamber reamers, so they're not all identical, but my guess is that a .250 Savage would chamber and shoot in it, then blow out to whatever "improved" version it might be. Finding proper reloading dies could be a challenge.

    Think the stock is safe? Cracked and repaired?

    It's anybody's guess.

    I guess it isn’t a Sako stock or barrel. Just the action.

    I just joined sako collectors club tonight becauseIi won the auction on that Sako and was looking for ideas of what I want to do with it. I also have a Sako a2 single shot action in stainless steel that I have had for years and thought i might build both of them. Any ideas would be welcomed.
