Re: Savage LRH problem
Before sending it back, keep in mind you only need 2 full thread turns (360 degrees, 2 revolutions) to fully engage the screw to the receiver at the prevailing torque value for an EGW rail. Don't sound like much engagement but keep in mind that you have 3 screws engaging the receiver.
Having said that, there has been some issues (according to Broz ((Jeff) with EGW rails bedding properly and egg shaped mounting holes and late model rails. I have an EGW on a 4 year old 338 that I had/have no issues with but there are better quality rails out there. Bruce Talley makes them, so does Nightforce and Ken Farrell.
You will find the EGW rails looks nice but it's soft aluminum.
Remove the rail, start the screws and it you get 2 full turns, it's good to go. If the screws are too long, shorten them or go to your LGD and get shorter screws. Shortening the screws can be an issue if you don't allow for thread lead. Without proper lead and chamfer, they won't thread into the holes in the receiver properly, if at all.
Farrell makes a nice rail with a milled in bottm slot for epoxy. I used blue threadlocker under my rail and on the screws as well...
