Sounds like you got a Savage Rifle (Long distance).

What you use your rifle for, will make the cheek rest either useful
or useless.

Long distance shooting requiring a 30 moa or better height on your
scope base, will soon prove out the advantages of an adjustable cheek piece.

If your shooting is 300 yards and under and have regular scope base and
mount, you probable don't need the cheek rest. The holes in the stock can
be plugged so as not to detract from the good looks of the rifle,
if carefully and artistically done.

Practice, Practice and Practice.

Just what do you consider long range I can shoot 1K yards and not top out and I don't have a plus moa base. I'm sure its better to have one.

I have one and while I'm not artistically inclined, IMO, the rifle is certainly not good looking, in fact, it looks 'Industrial'.....

The cant base is predicated in the amount of elevation adjustment your scope has. Most scopes benefit from a cant base to artificially increase the windage adjustment, but some don't. Obviously, your don't but then you are only shooting 1000 yards......

Re: Do you use an adjustable cheekpiece on your rifle?

Is your stock wood or plastic? I can tell you how to fix either one. I also shoot 1k + and I use a 20MOA base of my own design that is adjustable for windage. I am sure glad I have an adjustable for windage. Long story short I bought a superb .338 win mag ,douglas med heavy bbl timney trigger the whole 9 yds the only problem was when they drilled the scope bases they were 20 min off!!!! I looked for almost a year for a adjustable weaver mount, said to hell with it and designed and built my own. If you want one holler I will build a custom one for you.
