Welcome to , LRH Forum.Hello all !!! New here, so if this post is in the wrong place, please excuse me. Just purchased a Savage 110 High Country in 6.5 Creedmoor... I also have a Vortex Viper PST Gen II 5x25-50 on order with the Vortex pro rings (PRN 30),,, The gentleman at Euro Optics had no bases or advice for the correct bases ... This Savage , unlike the tactical 110 , doesn't have a picatinny rail from the factory... So I have to get bases OR a picatinny rail for it... I would prefer a two piece base to keep the weight down of an already heavier rifle. I know Weaver makes a two piece base, just not sure which would be the correct as there are many slightly different 110 savages available.. Can anyone please advise as to what would be the correct base/bases for this rifle and if I should go with a one or two piece base .... Thank you in advance...
Personally, I'm a 2 piece Bases fan. If your intended use is for hunting, the one piece rail can be cumbersome when trying to manually feed or eject brass or unload a live round and NOT ding it up, while the 2 piece offers plenty of room for those tasks.
If you are a Precision shooter, then a one piece.
Warne Bases are my "go-to's"
As already mentioned here, one piece offers more scope mounting flexibility and "may" be a more solid mounting platform (debatable).
I guess it more preference.
