Re: Savage Scope Mounts

OK I got my Nightforce 20moa two piece scope mounts. I want to make sure that I am putting them on correctly. Am I correct that I want to put the lower end closer to me and the higher end closer to the muzzle? I am using a micrometer to measure the thickness.

No. You want the front lower than the rear for long range shooting.

Well good thing I asked as I could have messed that one up. Should I use locetite on the screws for the bases?

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!
