I prefer the nightforce over schmidt and bender. You get more scope for the money.

Anyone that owns a rifle should have a good inch pound torque driver. I like the wheeler fat wrench. Its accurate enough to cover almost any job on a rifle. Just retorquing the action screws correctly and the same each time will help.

Another quick question on scope rings, I'm looking at getting a scope with a 50mm objective what size rings do I get? I'm looking at seekins and I'm not sure what the correct height is

For the Rings, it will depend on whether the Scope has AO or Side Focus.
If it has AO then you will need Rings that are Taller to account for the extra thickness of the AO surrounding the Front Lens Bell. Anywhere between Tall to Extreme Tall depending on Scope chosen and staying with 50mm Objective.

Using a rail,a Medium set of rings will work just fine for a 50mm Objective on any Savage 10/110 platform.
I've got 7-8 Savage rifles,and all have rails/medium rings/50 mm Objective scopes.

Hi guys I've been optic hunting for the past few days and am leaning towards waiting a little while and picking up a nightforce, been looking at thier 5.5-22x56 nxr I think its called, and was looking for practical feedback, is it worth the ezta money over a vortex pst with ffp? Its a second focal reticle. I really like the idea of ffp but is it really that much of a hinderance not having it?

On a second focal plane scope every time you change magnification your point of impact changes. Not so with a first focal plane scope. In my opinion the ffp scope is more than worth it.

+1 on the fat wrench. I love mine. It's one of the tools I use more often.
