Now anyone can put a base and rings on a scope. But I need a procedure on how to level and get the right fit at the same time. I did look on here for the right angle mounting procedure and found Determining Correct Scope Base Angle
. But nothing on leveling the scope properly.
I just ordered a new thumb hole laminated stock for my REM700 300RUM and will use the guide lines given by Shawn of Defensive edge to fit the gun to me. Then work on a load.
This is the same gun that had the "click boom" problem. This rookie sent the gun back to Rem when the problem turned out to be bad powder. We think. Shoot fine with new powder. But got a new trigger and firing pin out of it. So we will see.
Thanks for all the help guys!
