"Just a quick note. After continued shooting/testing of my Savage 10ML with your
Vari Flame large rifle primer system, all I can say again is "Brilliant!"

The LRVF Adapters: The LRVF adapters accept Large Rifle primers. The adapter slides into the new bolt face and then into the new breech plug. Large rifle primers are installed into the adapter with any hand priming tool equipped with a .22 Hornet shell holder. Spent primers are easily removed from the adapters with a simple pin punch and mallet. The adapters are machined from #316 stainless steel and designed for a lifetime of use.

The Breech Plug: Our LRVF Savage breech plug is machined from #416 stainless steel. It accepts the Savage 10ML style vent liner. It is headspaced to eliminate primers sticking onto the bolt face upon firing.

The Bolt Face: Our Savage LRVF bolt face is machined from hardened #416 stainless steel and is a perfect fit for our LRVF adapters. It works the same as your current Savage bolt face with the cut being sized correctly for the larger rim of the LRVF adapter.
Full installation instructions follow; installation time is less than 5 minutes.
