i just bought a Savage 10fcp-k. gotta wait the ten days. i need a rail mount. i asked the guy at turners and well you know the answer. i usually buy online at Midway or Cabelas. they list dozens and i dont have a clue.
weaver, picatinny, two piece, 0 moa and 20 moa?
i am pretty sure i want a one piece mount. i am going to use one of my old scopes till after xmas. i have a scope with picatinny mounts now but if something is more practical for my new rifle i will buy new rings.
thanks guys

Hunting or target shooting?
Anticipated range that you'll be shooting at?

Bench target shooting. Mainly at Angeles. No competition.

I just got the 110fcp-hs in 338lm and gonna put a 20moa HD EGW rail. I would get the 20 moa rail for your 308.....you'll eventually want to shoot further than 600yds at Angeles trust me!

I have a steel Ken Farrell 20 moa 1 piece base on my savage 110 I would say its on par with higher end stuff like badger & Seekins.

Definitely get a one piece EGW mount. But you'll need the 20 or 25 moa mount if you'll be doing above 200-300 yds.

Unless your action or scope has a manufacturer's defect, you don't need a 20 MOA until you get out past 800 yards. With a 155 grain bullet at 2800 fps you don't get more than 20 MOA of drop until about 750 yards.

Sorry, I'm talking from .22lr (Savage Mk II) perspective....my mistake.

My vote is for a TPS Aluminum one piece rail, I use one on my 10FP.

+1 for the Ken Farrell 20 moa 1 piece base

Thats what I have on my FCP-K and I have shot from 50yds to 1000 yards.
