I'll be messing around with the torque on my receiver screws. I think that's a good place to
look if the problem started after you removed the stock. But, FYI, I remove the barreled action
from my rif...

copper brush and scrub the outside of the barrel (which was clean and had no powder residue or

Good ideas Triumphman. Reversing the bases is worth a try. I would expect and it looks to be

The more I look at the picture, the more it seems you got the wrong set for this rifle. The
line of sight is angled to the probable POI. I know a little about the Leupold mounts, two of
