I had one of each, I don't recall having to seat 'em deep? But I always load to match the gun (and set the COAL for the gun), so I wasn't trying other ammo in the Savages, nor did I try the ammo I made for the savage in other rifles.A question for anyone that owned one in 222 or 223. Did you have problems having to seat bullets deeper than normal for other guns? My 340's in 30/30 had to have most bullets seated deeper than usual. To cycle through the action.
That nice cherry wood soooo close to that cinder block makes me cringe.......Did the front band, screw, and mag tube on this one (sanded to 180 on the lathe to match the rough OEM finish):

Did this whole rifle after a rebarrel and polish to fix a long-ago cold blue "restoration" and related rust and bad sanding job:
