Well i cant afford a night force with enough moa adjustment to shoot the distances i want to so i guess we will be going with opinion two the s3! Still a really nice scope.

I just bought the Savage 110 FCP with the H-S precision stock , it has the same 20 Moa rail as the BA and I m pretty sure its the exact same barrel contour. so I purchased a set of Seekins LOW (.820) rings and the 56 NF has about 5mm...perfect amount of clearance between the objective and the barrel at the highest point on the contour so you should be good.

I was also VERY impressed with the Seekins low rings. 8-25 torx all the way around , matched bored set . so keep the tops and bottoms together as a matched set as you assemble them.(if you go with them).I bought them off the website here. (Made in the USA!)


good luck

Patrick
