    The base is mounted correctly. Honestly though other than the package the mount came in, I cant really tell if it IS in-fact a 20 MOA base. There isn't a stamp on the base that says 20 MOA.

    500 yard gun hu? I seem to be getting better results.

    Hazzmatics,

    Give EGW a call and talk to them about getting a 20 MOA Picatinny rail for your Savage. I have used many of their aluminum rails and have never had an issue with one. You can get one for around $30.00. You may need a steel rail (?). I don't know what caliber you shooting.

    Contact Us: Evolution Gun Works Inc.

    PS: With a Picatinny rail you can add a bubble level to it to level your action. This will help you from canting your rifle when shooting long range. After I get the reticle perfectly vertical I put an off centered bubble on the scope so I can see it when shooting and then remove the bubble off the Picatinny rail. The second picture shows what the offset bubble looks like when shooting and also shows you my Vortex Custom Turret which is dead nuts accurate.

    The bottom target was shot at 1,000 yds.

    I have the same Vortex level on my scope and I leveled the recticle using a plumb line. I put a level on the Picatinny rail to level the rifle (even if the stock isn't perfect, the rail will be level), then leveled the reticle in the rings with the plumb line, and finished by leveling the bubble mounted on the scope tube. I have a swiveling bipod with a lock and peripheral vision allows me to see the level while the rifle is shouldered. I level it and then lock the bipod down.





    And recently acquired stock I stripped, sanded, and freshly painted:

    Yours looks ok to me. Here is a picture of my 20 MOA Picatinny rail. It is definitely lower in the front. It is a little hard to see though.
