Re: Savage Scope Mounts
I have a Savage 114 - Long action, round receiver. These rails look good and economical. I have 2 questions-
If you use a 20 MOA rail, that adds 20 MOA straigt off the bat, right? So can you zero for 100 yards, or will the scope set at the lowest setting still be too high? I want the 20 MOA to make sure I have enough vertical adjustment for 1000 yards but my scope only has 35 MOA of adjustment.
Second, the Savage has a fairly high angle lift to cycle the bolt. Are you guys using HIGH rings or MEDIUM? Seems like medium might have clearance problems especially considerign a lens flip cap adding 1/16 - 1/8" to the scope eyepiece thickness.
Any advice is welcome!
