50mm objective you might need taller rings.

I have the Savage Police model 25-06 with the heavy barrel. I had the SAME problem.

Just told the shop owner to throw in a set of rings and bases. The bases were flat, my receiver is rounded. The rings were normal, and I needed offset to match my scope.

And I was actually using a Whitetail classic as well.


Strange!!!
Shoot'em close. Less to pick.

They might get my guns, but they'll get the bullets first !
