Haven't used shilene , but I have a 112 that I have a Pac nor and 2 factory barrels for. Where is rossville tn at. I live in Kingsport tn . You will need a barrel wrench , and maby a vise or action wrench. Most seem to prefer the action wrench over the vise. I only use a barrel wrench, it don't have to be GO ---- RILLER tight , only about 30 ft lbs. Headspace gauges are used by some , but I use a system of new full length sized brass to set mine. The only drawback in the method is factory rounds from the store will not fit .
Some others use a once fired and then sized case to set theirs up, after the space is set most will place a piece of paper between the bolt face and case head , the bolt should not close . I take the guts out of my bolt and set it where the bolt handle will drop about 3/4 with just it's weight . This gives a very slight crush fit on the brass. But mine is used to bench rest only so I don't worry about dirty brass issues. There are other manufacturers out there also . Lothar makes one Adams and Bennett through Midway , And there are others as well . There is also a site called Savage shooters dedicated to the Savage system. There is loads of info on there.
Thanks for the info. Rossville, TN is about 15 miles east, southeast of Memphis in Fayette County. It's a really small town on a railroad track. The Wolf River is about a half mile away, just north of here. It's heavily wooded and quiet,............until a train comes through! LOL
