Re: Base attachment questions.

JDJones, I agree with you on the force needed to shear off the screws, but what about just enough force to change zero? Bases that use screws with square shoulders can have quite a bit of side to side/front to back play. You said you use Weaver type screws so maybe you're using angled head screws? If so, that leads me back to the original question. Do angled head screws help keep the base from moving? Are there others that match the angle in the base? What about using angled screws in a square shouldered base? Just looking for other options and insight from others. Thanks again for your insight.
