Ok, thanks man

95sniper,What type of base are you using? If your using a 2 pc base on a long action receiver,you can run into problems depending on the length of your scopes maintube. With some shorter scopes,you may have problems getting a good sight picture / eye relief.
I always use a 1 pc base Weaver/Picatinney rail on long actions,then you don't have problems mounting a scope where it needs to be on a long action.

I was looking at those earlier today, I might have to go that direction.

Your Rifle should have Weaver style bases. This is What is on my savage 110 7mmRM....


They are outstanding. These have been on this rifle since 1998, have never loosened. These are Weaver steel, Never use aluminum, can cause issues such as stripping threads.


These are what are on my other rifles.

I picked up the rifle, I'm still on the way back home. I can't unload any pictures yet. Scope hasn't arrived and I like it so far. It doesn't have a magazine which I like and its synthetic stock with accutrigger.

Rifle is awesome. Scope is a Weaver 2-10x38mm V10. Great combo.

I have the Accuracy solutions aluminum Q.D. rings on my 16" Ruger GSR .308, and on my Marlin lever I had re bored to .356 Winchester. No problems at all, I sold the Warne's I had on my Marlin as they were so much heavier. If someone has stripped aluminum rings or bases they were either cheap ones to begin with or the screws were torqued too much. Many excellent makers such as Talley, Redfield and Farrell use aluminum in some of their products. I just sold a long action Savage .270 and had on it a Ferrell one piece aluminum picatinny base like TXhillbilly was talking about. As he said, you can put a shorter scope on a really long action and put the rings where you want them. Or use extension bases to move the rings closer together.
