Default savage axis xp .308 scope mounting

i bought a savage axis xp that comes with a scope. i have a scope already and figured i'll just replace the scope with the one i have and use the xp scope for my 22lr rifle.

i soon found out that the rings are to far apart. i remember reading an article that the savage 10,110 etc and other savage use the same scope base.

so i bought a savage 10 leupold scope base that has an extra slot to move the rings closer. once i got it only one of the base had a round receiver base. the other was a flat receiver.

since my axis is all round receiver i used only the base with the extra slot(round receiver).

if you look at the pics you can see the scope is slightly tilted down in the front. is it ok like this? will i top out of adjustment for elevation this way?






here is a link to what i bought

Thats right.

0 MOA 0-600yds
20 MOA 600-100yds

I am very happy with their mounts, I have 3 - one on the savage, one on my Marlin 1895CB and one on my H&R Buffalo Classic

I agree the EGW's are great and I like the price's.
I'd say get a 20MOA one but first check to see how
much elevation adjustment your scope has...you need
35-40 overall to be able to zero @ 100yds. The Leopold should have enough most quality scopes do...YMMV IMO

Agreed, the scope tube can be bent that way if you tighten the rings very much. It will also most likely not allow you to zero before running out of adjustment.

Just get the rail mentioned above and make sure it is mounted parallel with bore axis. That is how a scope needs to be mounted, parallel to bore axis.

jvh22a- yes with the 20 MOA the angle it has gives you 20 MOA more elevation adjustment for farther shots. So what you are doin is angling the barrel
toward the scope so you can use more elevation in the scope adjustment.
