My 140 gr AMAX load is 41.4 gr of H4350. Runs about 2,700 fps and Iím guessing about 56,000 psi.

Thanks. I knew H4350 is the go to power, but all I have is H4831SC. My current load is Amax 140gr 0.01" off the land, 46.8gr H4831SC, 210M, 2833 FPS. 5 shots group are about 0.56-0.66MOA. Not bad, just not as tight as NCC 140gr.

What bothers me is 3 shots around 0.2MOA, then next two shots open the groups up to 0.6MOA, there is definitely room for improvement.

Freeflight,
Any chance you ever got this issue figured out?
I've got a Savage 12 LRP in 6.5 Creedmoor with a Vortex Viper PST FFP 6-24X50 with EGW 20 MOA base and Burris XTR rings and only have about 7 Mil of elevation left. I would expect about 16 Mil (in a perfect world) but I should definitely have more than 7.

Looks like I won't be getting any response but I'll try to keep the thread alive for those with the same issue. I've seen this issue come up on other boards with the same setup so I'm sure it will help others if I get my issue figured out.

I removed the scope and base. reinstalled and took back out to the range to confirm that there wasn't a mounting issue but the issue remained.

Next step would be to buy a custom 45MOA base from EGW and call it a day or send it back to Savage to confirm that action and barrel are square.

I decided to send it back. Savage was kind enough to send me a UPS shipping label and I'll get it in the mail in the next few days. Hopefully I'll have it back in about 5 weeks so I can Identify or exclude the rifle as the cause of the issue.

Why not crank the scope all the way down and shoot, crank it all the way up, and measure the distance between them first. That way you eliminate the scope before you dismantle.
