wow sounds like a thumper,I bought solid steel weaver rings & hope they hold up,300g will be my max weight & wont be trying any max loads for the 300g.Im going to try to get accuracy in the 250g range,will shoot xtp's to start out with & will pu other powders besides the N110.Im afraid my smokeless adventure may start me loading centerfire rounds if Im not careful lol

You should be good I had a Nikon buckmasters on my savage for 6 years. When I first got it it had aluminum bases & rings & it toasted a scope but once I switched to steel I was good to go. Best of luck to ya smokeless is the only way to fly

Hay mike I wish you the best of luck with your new gun. I have everything ready to go with mine. I ordered 25 powder vials to for my charges and they came yesterday. Now here we are going on vacation and I can't shoot it till I get back. I am going to try ww209 primers will see how they work.
