338 Lapua, Savage 111

Getting about .75 MOA. Think it will do better but still in the break in phase so I am not too worried. RL 22 and 250 Sierras seems to be doing well.

Re: 338 Lapua, Savage 111

So what scope and rings are you using? How tight did you torque the rings? Nice shooting.

Using a Vortex, Viper 4-12x40 with the ballistic hash marks in Burris Z rings with the plastic inserts. No torque wrench...so all I can say is pretty tight but not tight enough. Might be worth putting a third or fourth ring in.

Those plastic inserts might be your problem. Might want to look into a base that is canted and use a good wide pair of rings. I have used the Burris XTR rings with good success. My cousin used the same rings on his 338 Lapua. Maybe doubling up the Z ring might work. I would add a third ring and torque to 25-30 inch pounds. You don't want to go much more than that.
