I never had an interest in the Sage.

I know the Ultras fit very nicely in a standard USGI stock with op rod guide fitment or a JAE if that helps.

I'm just wondering if the channel in the SAGE is big enough at the end to accommodate the barrel. I'd have to leave the front band on or have custom shims made since a factory crush washer won't fit.

I'm wondering if the barrel whip screw will still fit.

If you can shoe horn one in there Tony, you won't have any barrel whip to worry about.

So this question stems from one i asked Tony. I can't seem to find anyone that can do a Heavy profile barrel in 6.5 CM for the Sage EBR heavy barrel chassis. Can someone enlighten me what the difference in barrel profile is between a Medium and Heavy profile?

The heavy profile has a large diameter to the gas cylinder and requires a different ORG. The medium is a larger diameter to ORG, but a standard ORG is used.
A Bula heavy barrel is a heavy profile to the gas cylinder then is .750 to the muzzle. It requires a modified gas cylinder. And they do shoot well. I know they work very well in a McMillan M3A

Is it possible to get a Heavy .308 and have a gunsmith re-chamber to 6.5?
More than a chamber change. The 6.5 is considerably smaller diameter than a .308.
Would be a simple barrel change from .308 to 6.5. They are interchangeable on most rifles.
