Alright, tell me if this sound right. Got me a Savage model 16 in .300 wsm, gonna put a egw picatinny rail with 0 moa, then warne med. rings, holding up a vortex diamondback 4-12x40. Does that sound right? What would you change? Mostly using for bear and deer 250-400 yds.

Welcome to Optics Talk. 

Yes, this should work well. Which particular Warne rings are you considering?

I would change the rings to lows, or the base to the EGW HD base. The regular EGW is pretty thick...

the egw base is the non hd base so it's the .4-.45" base 1" maxima perm. base is what I was going to go with. I wasn't sure if the low's would do I may order them and give them try.

they dont make the savage picatinny rail in silver and hd.  The rings are gonna be silver to, should be a good contrast to the stock and black scope. I got a email into swfa and may call them on monday just to make sure I get what will work. I tried the formula they have but I musta screwed it up cause I kept coming up with high mounts and I know thats not right.

Got it all finally mounted up. Went with the egw rail, warne low rings and a vortex 4-12x40 viper. looks great, and the low rings were the way to go!! Can't wait to shoot it when it stops raining for a minute.

Good deal! I missed the part about the "mediums" and Bill was right, obviously lows worked.
