The rings are high for sure. I had them on my DPMS. I am saving up for a decent scope with 30mm tube so I figured I would be changing out the rings anyway. I may just buy some so so rings to get that bell down on that barrel.

This is my Savage LRP in 6.5 Creedmoor. It's out of the box aside from the 10-50x60mm Sightron and my "custom" cheek rest that I made myself.

This is my only Sightron and I am pretty happy with it. I picked it up used for $700 and I've been pleased with it so far. With our Georgia humidity and mirage I don't get above 35 power very often though. It is bright and clear at 1,000.

Nice pieces. My wife and I have made the switch to a CM family. Problem is she is LH, but Savage took care of it. Mine is a 16 and hers a 11 both have Leupolds. We just hunt but do they shoot both under moa with factory 140 A-Max. Hers a little better than mine till I started loading. Here is a pic of some of my loads. 300 yards 140 VLD hybrid, I consider that lucky for me.

swampthing; Anatone is good hunting. some decent bucks and 400" bulls come out of that area every year. So here is my load development story. I started with loads of H-4350 at 42.0; 43.0; 43.5; 44.0 at magazine length. They where plum into the lands. I shot all loads at 300y. The 43.0 grain load stood out 2". I was going to go .1 in both directions of 43.0 but I changed bullet depth to just off the lands to gross adjustment of 1/4 turn out per load on seating die. Bang low and behold this is the group with a full turn off the lands. Had one other group at 3/4 at 300y. I haven't measured it yet as my friend has my calipers and he's in Kansas hunting. He'll be home this weekend. Federal 210 and Hornady cases. I will let you know on length. Shot again today 2 almost touching and F-upped next shot 1.5". I'm not the best shot.

That is one sick group for 300 yrds. I was happy to see that at 100 while working my seating test.  Next is powder workup.. mine likes the vld's. 08 off the rifling.  Going to start loading tomorrow ill snap a pic of the new gun once I get home.

My buddy s trying to talk me into an Idaho trip.  Id love to go hunt elk or moose sometime.
