I picked up my Vangaurd .300 Weatherby yesterday, and I have a question about the bases that came with it. They look offset to me, the rear base is higher than the front. For some reason my phone is not letting post pics anymore, it always has but it quit for some reason. Anyway is this normal for the Vanguard? The scope is visually angled, luckily I use Burris Sig Zee rings so no damage.

Reminds me of the mounting holes on my 1st Savage 111 LRH.
I had to use Burris zee rings also.

I had good luck bedding 2 piece bases on a 700. I shimmed the rear base 20moa and used a picatinny riser mount as a jig to align the bases as the Devon cured. I drilled additional holes in the riser so I could tighten the 2 piece bases easily during bedding.

Luckily its not a problem with the action holes. I checked the numbers on the bases, and after looking online at other vanguards, the bases are correct. Its a optical illusion with the angle of the bottom of the stock, (I guess)....hahaha

You got there before I could say....

with 4 vanguards, it's probably an optical illusion.

Though now I use EGW 20 MOA rails on pretty much everything.

That's the exact base I was thinking of ordering.
