Savage model 12 scope mount

Does any one know the screw size used on a Savage model 12 scope base? I be-leave it is a 8-40 but not sure.

    The scope base holes on top of Savage actions are threaded to 6-48.

    I have seen where some guys have re-threaded them to a 8-40, but I have never really seen a reason for it other than to just have a bigger screw. The 6-48's have held whatever I've needed it to with no problem.

    I came accross your post and am interested in the same. I am building a 6.5x47L and a 300 WSM on the savage actions. |With varmint contour barrels what height rings would you use. I plan on 20 moa bases.
