Re: How bad is bad?
Bases were professionally installed by a trusted and regionally respected gunsmith and there is no movement that I can detect by hand.
Burris signature Zee rings on 2 piece Warne steel bases.
Scope does not touch the barrel.
Barrel is fully free floated, all the way back to the recoil lug.
Rifle is a brand new savage model 10. Rear tang is also floated.
This problem has been observed with Federal, Remington, Fiocci, and Winchester factory hunting ammo from 150 grain ballistic tips to 180 grain round nose.
I don't want to get into the scope brand because I don't want to start off a "me too, those are junk"/"mine works fine" thread. I have observed a problem with my rifle that I am trying to diagnose. I have a problem that cropped up with my scope along the way. My question is, given the problem with the scope, should I throw out all previous results with the rifle pending installation of a replacement scope.
