    Considering re-barreling one of my Savage 12 actions to 22 CM and was wondering if the high chamber pressure(s) have been an issue for anyone?

    You may find that you have better luck if you get a bushing installed on the bolt to reduce the clearance between the firing pin and the hole for it. The one common problem I have seen amongst factory Savages is blanked primers and this is usually solved by a little bolt magic. A number of the people who post here do bolt bushing jobs at a high quality.
