Ok, I've decided to do it this year. I'm going to put together a good long range hunting rifle using a Savage 12BVSS 300WSM. So for scope mounting. . .First, my plan is to bed the base, buy top quality rings and bases and forget the lapping. it is my belief that lapping is less accurate than the original machining of the original parts. Is this good thinking? Next, I want to use a 1 pc picatinny base for strength/straightness of mounting and because it should be accurate enough to allow scope removal with just a quick sight in. Has this been your experience? Last, I'm looking at Warne, Farrell G Force, TPS bases with matching manufacturer's rings. I think my preference is TPS due to price, details of their parts on their web site, and real picatinney dimensions. Any opinions of any of these makers good or bad? BO is just too much money! Last, recticle alignment. I've been sold on the deadeye precision scope leveler, i think, but is there something else as good or better? Oops, one more. . .Do you use one of the anti-cant bubble levels for checking your hold on your gun? If so, which one? If I use the short one, can I check it without shifting the gun? I would prefer that one as it's scope ring is AL instead of plastic. BTW. . .Anything good or bad to say from Super Sniper owners? Oh yea, I forgot one more. . .I'm considering a 20 MOA base to put me more in the center of the scopes adjustments at long range to allow me to dial windage instead of dialing the elevation clear to the top and thenm having no windage. I've read that 20 MOA bases will cause your cheekweld to be too high, on a normal rifle, even with only medium rings. Is this true? 20 MOA is just so small over the length of the scope, I doubt I would notice at all! Will I notice my head position being higher or too high?
