EGW is aluminum and the others are steel. I just purchased an EGW base for a Savage and will see what happens.
I did notice it doesn't sit flat on the action. I need to figure out if it is crooked or the action is. I have Warne on everything else and have been pleased but I couldn't find one to fit this action and didn't want to wait. We shall see how well it works.

I have Weaver bases on all my rifles they are aluminum and seem to work fine. Even found a 20 MOA base made by Weaver at SWFA they work great and at the price I was able to by 5 and still not pay what some of these companies want for one.
