Re: Beefing up XP scope base?

Just remember that because you have a muzzle break on the gun doesn't stop the scope from taking it. The scope feels what is going on at the time the trigger is pulled like all the metal moving when the trigger is pulled and the chamber starts to swell until it is all over. All we feel is what happens when the bullet leaves the end of the barrel. Just my .02 worth, or maybe worthless.

Re: Beefing up XP scope base?

Thanks for all your help and replys. I ended up buying a base from Near MFG and he is sending it to the gunsmith. The holes won't be opened up but Near ads an extra hole to the front and to the rear of the base. It wasn't cheep but with what I already have into this project I'd hate to have a weak link in the setup.

You are welcome.
This is one of the areas where you cannot skimp without it costing you some heartache further down the road.
What Chuck (Mac's Gunworks) said is very true.
A brake reduces the felt recoil for you, but every part of your gun is impacted as if there was no brake at all.
