Sorry for not responding in a more timely manner. Dad had a Weaver flip over mount which surprisingly never lost POI. The smith had to weld the existing holes over because they didn’t match up with the holes in the Leopold bases I had purchased and one of the holes would be not be covered by the new bases. After grinding the welds, he drilled and tapped new holes and reblued the area. The work was beautifully done, but I wish I had left it the way dad had it.Have the same rifle (inherited). How did you get the scope mounted? I'd love to put one on but don't want to permanently alter the rifle.
Beautiful stock.Here’s mine. First one is my semi custom .284 Norma Match, built on a Remington 700 long action, fitted with a 26” Bartlein #3 1-8 twist 5R barrel with a blended Hawkins Precision brake. It has a Remington special edition laminated ADL stock that’s been pillar and skim bedded with Devcon. It’s topped with a 4-16x44 Vortex HS-T in a set of Hawkins Precision Hybrid rings. It loves Berger 175gr Elite Hunters and RL23 in Peterson brass going 2850FPS.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
