Re: Scope rings
Not me, I have my Badgers mounted on a Badger rail. Marty says not to lap, so I ain't lapping. You grind out a round hole, you get an eccentric hole, plain and simple. I suppose when using cheaper rings there may be a problem, but with $100+ rings, those guys BETTER know what they are talking about, and I think Marty knows his $hit. He's even tired of arguing with folks. Can't says I blame him.
Ian- don't forget Kelby. They use aluminum inserts.
Skidy-how in the heck do you guys get used to the kick of the big fifty? That must be one heck of a wallup. I'm not recoil shy, but if I was to shoot a 50, it would have to weigh over 100 lbs.
I would have to add also, that if we are talking about true custom guns, such as the bench guys are using, with custom actions, then yes I would lapp. But I would also have the base trued with the action to insure that the optics were centered. Rings are lapped to insure better scope/rings contact, but I think centering the optics would be something good to consider also.
