Scope Mounts for Savage 11/111 in 7mm Rem Mag

Preparing to Test the Savage 11/111 Long Range Rifle:

This Savage 11/111 rifle with the long 7mm Remington Magnum cartridge requires either a scope with a long body or a modified Weaver extended base. The VX-6 requires an extended base. I found this out with lots of research the Weaver Rep. Weaver 402m part #48429. I have not put it on the rifle as it has been ordered but not installed. More to come…

Some say a picatinny rail can work but will hamper reloading.
