    I have just bought a Browning BAR Shortrac with alloy receiver. What in/lbs should I torque the scope base down at?

    I have a 30-06 Safari with a 20 MOA rail that I have shot out to 400 yds. Please let us know how yours shoots at long range if you plan on shooting that far.

    Thanks in advance,

    Joseph, I'll be away deer shooting in 4 weeks time where shots from 100 up to and over 400 yards are common so will report back on results.
