Ok, looking for some opinions on this. Here is the gun: Pre-Accutrigger Savage 116 - flat back Putting on a new McGowen .280AI barrel in Sporter contour. Has a B&C Medalist stock. Gun currently has 1” Talley lightweight direct mount rings on it. These are great, but 0 MOA and 1”. So the dilima...I have a Vortex HST 4-16x44 scope ready to go on this. So I’ll be able to dial ranges. This isn’t a super light rig, but not heavy. Would you: A. Put on 30mm Talley rings and roll with the limited elevation adjustment? Or B. Put on aluminum 20 MOA base and aluminum rings to gain the elevation? I love the clearance on the Talley’s for loading rounds. That is a big part of my thinking. I know weight difference won’t really be that much. What would you guys do?
