I put a murphyprecision 20MOA rail on mine. Stainless steel that's blackened somehow. Paint I guess.

I run Talley 2 piece base/rings with 5x20 Huskemaws on my 6.5x284's.. Saves me over a pound in weight. I use .a NF .020 rail, and steel Mark 4 rings/NF 5,5z22x50 on my 300WM. I like the recoil lug on the NF rail.

I have a non-moa Picatinny rail from Weaver bought at Cabela's. It was cheap but seems to be built well enough. Zero issue's with it and I have lots of adjustment to fit the long action. I already had scope to eye alignment issue's so addding any height was not going to work for me. I have the NF 5.5x22 56mm.

Blackhawk makes a nice rail as well. I will be switching to a weaver picatinny on all my rifles now so that I can move a scope from one to another if I want to.

Well I think they can both reach out and touch an animal at 1000. There is really no weight difference. 1oz.
So I guess I can just see how it looks. You know dang well that I will plan for that early sunrise or late sunset with the 56 and won't get it. I'll happen to have the 50 on me when that comes up so I guess it's a toss up.
So a night force rail? I have the rings already that came when I bought the scope.
Thanks for the input!!

Re: Savage 111 LRH 6.5-284 Loading Questions

Think I found my problem. I've been getting some good groups but am plagued with flyers. I noticed the other weekend I had a few flyers with my 243 which never happens. Today I was loading some 243 and pondering on this and thought the only thing I've changed recently is I bought a digital scale, so after weighing charges on the digital I checked them all on my balance beam. Geez, the loads had a spread of .5 grains some low some high. I can't believe it would be that inaccurate. I have to think this is my flyer culprit. I'll load some more groups on the beam this weekend and see if the flyers go away. Will be back, with good news hopefully.

Re: Savage 111 LRH 6.5-284 Loading Questions

Need some help here. The scale wasn't the only problem. I still can't get my 6.5-284 LRH to group. To restate previous facts its a savage LRH, Berger 140 VLD, Retumbo, lapua brass, 210M. I ve tried various seating depths from the lans out to .080 off them.

I thought a bad scale was the problem but I guess not. Today I still could not get consistency with once fired, neck sized brass, 57.5 Retumbo set .075 off the lans. 2 shots 1/2" apart one flyer 1-1/2 away. I am wondering if my barrel is copper fouled. This is why. I am about 100 shots in and I used hopped #9 to clean every 3 shots for the first 40 rounds then every 10 since. I was told this was not a strong enough copper remover for breakin. Could this be?? Need some help here.
