    SSS ACME DBM kit

    hi everyone, im planning on getting this kit from SSS sometime soon, but first i would like to get some experiences from people here in the savage shooters

    i know there are other threads about this, but none of them satisfy me, if im going to drop 200+ dollars on an upgrade, i like to know that its a good one :)

    does it fit in the factory stock without any inletting? does anyone have any experiences using the ACME kit on a 300 WSM? when you put in a magazine, is it stiff or does it move some?

    im going to get this on my savage which i will use as a dedicated hunting rifle, and by dedicated, i mean its going to see some heavy use i just want to know if it will hold up well.

    That was the original intent of the design so that it would be a true drop in.

    I don't think that this will work. the magazine is a single stack design for use on 308 dimension cases. (IE 22/250, 6BR, 6x47, 243 win, ETC)

    The machining on SSS stuff is top notch, the magazine snaps in place and has a tight fit, but no matter what you do any magazine will have some movement, there has to be some space so that the set up will detach, if it is too tight, then it will be difficult to remove the magazine.

    It should hold up fine.

    Re: SSS ACME DBM kit

    i believe the 300 WSM should fit, its about as long as a .308 round but wider, if the .284 fits then i would think the 300 WSM should fit since they are pretty close in dimensions, thanks for answering my questions.

    WSM's will not fit in the magazines, it is for the .308 family of cartridges.

    I just ordered mine today for my 300 WSM, my research shows that the mag for the 308 will work you just have to open up the lips a little, the 10 round mag should only hold 7 of the WSM rounds.

    Fred Moreo (sharpshooter) just said it would not work about six posts ago.

    Now that pisses me off, I called them back the second time today just to make sure they would and was told yes they will fit.

    Re: SSS ACME DBM kit

    i called SSS a couple months ago and they told me it wouldnt fit. it doesnt matter to me anyway since i bought a stock from Kevin over at Stockade gun Stocks and i also ordered one of his custom AICS bottom metals along with it, i would recommend getting an AICS DBM since it is easier to find magazines, and theyre getting cheaper as more companies start making them.

    Re: SSS ACME DBM kit

    I just called them back and they double checked and you are right, 300 WSM will not work. I have toyed with getting a CDI but from what I've been told they will not set flush with the bottom of your stock they are recessed about an 1/8 of an inch. Not to mention they do not come with a mag.

    Re: SSS ACME DBM kit

    Fred, will your kit work, or could it be made to work on older long actions chambered for .308, or .223?

    Re: SSS ACME DBM kit

    The frame is too short for what you want. I would have to make a special long/short frame, and I don't have enough call to do that.
    By the way....a WSM cartridge is larger than the inside width of the magazine.

    Will this conversion work on a stagger feed assuming that the stock is inletted?
