I hope we can meet up, but I am not sure where you are located since you didn't fill out your profile. But you know where I am friend, so like I said bring your best stick with an EGW base and lets burn some long range powder.

PS: Your range finder probably will not reach the first target. But being the nice guy I am, I will let you borrow my over priced one.

Yeah..sure. Like Im going to drive 1700 miles one way to take you up on that. Get real dude!!

And BTW..I live near Cincinnati

Would I like to shoot at some Extremely long range stuff? You bet I would.

I buy nothing from Wally World, and nothing I stated would even begin to indicate I was some sort of expert on rails..?? I stated an alternative is all..simple as that.

Someone chimed in and said the #8 screws and steel rail were nice for a "hard shooting magnum"..and I agree 100%...BUT...when I posted NO ONE HAD SAID they had some sort of shoulder cannon..did they?????????

hard recoiling magnum or not recoil is recoil you need to have the best scope mounting you can.

And thats a lot of BS also! Why not just tack weld the rail on then??? If I were SERIOUSLY worried about my rail shooting loose or getting lose or whatever. Id have my smith align drill a small hole...thru the rail into the reciever and then have a #10 DOWEL PINset in it.

There is NO WAY any amount of force a rifle would see that can shear off a #10 dowel pin.

Sully2, if only you knew half as much as you think you know. How much force does it take to shear off a #6 screw?...Well Mr. Knowledge, there are a LOT of factors, I don't know them all so I will list the obvious ones. Material composition, Material Hardness and of course the most obvious "METAL FATIGUE is the progressive and localized structural damage that occurs when a material is subjected to cyclic loadings."-Wikipedia.

In case you cant understand that I will sum it up for you
Not all screws are created equal, and regardless of what they are made of they WILL ALL FAIL eventually. That being said with an intregal recoil lug such the ones that NF, BO, etc.. machine into their bases, a large portion, if not all of the "cyclic loadings" (depending on the fit) are now transfered to the base itself and not the screws and that base can take a hell of a lot more abuse than a little screw.
I know you are a simpleton, however I believe you should be able to understand this. I had my 2 year old proof read this and it made sense to her...
