As posted before I ordered myself a new Savage 10 series rifle last week.  The expected delivery date is 22 Mar.

Well I have gotten everything for the rifle but the RIFLE!

The SWFA SS 16x42 scope looks good.  The range of elevation is 403 clicks, Dam^!

I don't have a canted base so I am kind of curious if the zero will be some where close to the center point of the rifle of higher/lower?  Never really worried about this until I got a rifle that I want to be able to shoot 800M with.

Any suggestion of experience on scope mounting would be helpful.  I have the two level system you can get from _______(don't want to type the Name).  In the past I have just used a plumb bob at about 20 yards and was done.  With the added yardage I am not sure if this is going to be a good enough method for my current situation?

Thanks

  You should be good to go. Remember just shoot and enjoy that Savage will get better every time you shoot it.

LOL good thing you didn't order a custom, or you would really hate the wait.  Hopefully you got low rings as anything else is too high IMO.  The 16xSS is a good scope for the money, I had one a while ago and it worked just fine for me.
 
I always did the bubble level method for mounting the scope.  Adjust it in the rest (hopefully you have something sturdy to use a s a rest) and make sure you are getting a level reading off of the base.  Then I get a level reading off of the elevation adjustment knob, use some feeler gagues to make sure that the bottom of the housing is sitting flush with the base, and I also look through a Wheeler leveling kit (kinda crappy).  I figure if I go at it with three things something is going to get it where it needs to be.

Excellent Very nice... I like that. If she shoots half as good as she looks, you got a winner. Then again, it is a Savage, so the shooting part is almost a given.

That is what I hear, lets see if see can put her money where her mouth is tomorrow morning.

Fingers crossed.  Made a cheek pad for her and used _____USA's scope levers to get her as close I can.  This should be interesting, my first ling range shooter!  HOOAH!
