I just bought a Savage FCP HS precision Lapua. I have read people commenting on differences in what rails came on their rifles. Im relatively new to this and do not know how to determine if the factory rail is 0MOA or 20 MOA. Can anyone explain how to tell the difference?
Can I just measure the stock end and barrel end of the rail, and if the stock end is higher that means its probably a 20 MOA?
Their was too much technical talk when I used the search methods. Thanks!
How obvious is the height difference between the ends. Should it be obvious to the naked eye? When I hold it up the rail looks parallel to the action but I'm not sure how small of difference I'm looking for
If the scope is mounted rotate the turret or adjuster in the down direction till it bottoms out and keep tract of the distance. If you know the total adjustment range of the scope that will kinda tell you how far off center your cross hair is. This won't be exact but should tell you roughly if it's a zero, ten or twenty. If it's a zero the amount of adjustment up and down should be about the same within reason. All scopes are different but this should give you a idea.
I would think the paper work that came with the rifle would state the amount especially if it was factory installed. It might be marked.
