Re: which scope mount and bases for my new savage build?

For my apps i use Badger ordnance and Seekins.I have never had a problem with either! I use the badgers on all of my stuff where weight isn't an issue because they are steel. On the rifles i'd like to cut a little weight on i use the seekins.

These are both tough as nails no b.s mounts and rings! And i have heard that these guys have exellent customer servise.Are they exspensive? Yes they are but IMHO i think they are worth it!

The Burris XTR rings are dang good and very reasonably priced. It would be worth your time and trouble to lap them before installing the scope though.

Bases on a budget, EGW is good.

I just bought the Ken Farrell 20 MOA base and topped it with TPS rings. I had heard a lot of good things about this set up and the price was more in line with what I wanted to spend. It's been on the gun for about a month and there are absolutely no issues with this set up whatsoever. This setup is dead nuts at 100 yds all the way out to 1060 yds.

I did a combination of these two.

I'm using a EGW 20moa base and TPS rings. Couldn't be happier.
