    I finally bit the bullet and spent the $300 bucks on a base and rings for "Big Green" my 338 Lapua. I got a Badger Ordinance 30 moa Base and Badger Max 50 Rings. got everything mounted last night and I love ...LOVE the way it looks now. Only thing left to do is get my level and my new threaded bolt handle installed (i dont like how wimpy my current one looks) Anyway here are some pics I snapped with my phone. I will post some pics from a real camera once I get the rest of my stuff on it. Oh also the cerakoat on the action is new and so is the PT&G bottom metal and Timney Trigger!

    I am going to get the setup from flatline ops that has level and ACI on the same unit

    I have been toying with the idea of the FlatLine Ops as well, I like what they are doing. Good looking rig....

    In case you didn't know Chad Dixon @ LongRifles Inc is doing a group buy on Tactical bolt knobs right now.... you might take a look.

    I already have the new handle and knob but ill take a look maybe they have a know i would like better than the one I got Thanks. And yeah the flatline level is the best option I can find, just hard to choke up 300 bucks for an air bubble

    Here is another ASLI option, not sure on how tough it is but the price is a little easier to stomach

    I have that ACI on a 338 RUM (Seen Below), I can honestly say that I am having mixed results with it. For one, the level is set up to "half" the bubble on the line instead of the more conventional setup with a line on either side of the bubble (which is just an inconvenience). Number two, the RUM knocks the snot out of it, last range session it acutally came loose in the mount & started sliding around which I can understand as the tension screw that holds the ACI to the picatinny mount is T.I.N.Y. I have no idea why it's SO small or why they only installed one....

    I always put the nuts that tighten the rings to the Picatinny rail on the opposite side from the bolt handle so the nuts don't get on the way of the fingers and shell casings.

    Just saying,

    I guess that depends on which type of rings you use, the Burris XTRs have a flat milled into the crossbar that is used to tighten the rings to the base, I would tend to think that they can only be properly installed one way.

    I can't recall if the others i've use are that way or not, are those Badgers that way?
