I have a remington 700 pss with a SS10x42 scope, IOR low tactical rings with a egw rail.  When mounting the rail i am having a problem with leveling.  i can get the front portion of the base level but when i screw down the back portion it throws the back off and its really unlevel. Now i have read that spending money on quality rails and mounts is always wise choice, but my question is before i go purchase the badger rail is, could it be something that im doing wrong? or could it be the reciever and if so how will i know? Thanks for all your help

I thought EGW was for pistolero's. Sorry, I'm no help for you.  I would measure the screw holes in the receiver and go from there.  You might want to PM TPS Phil he's a ring and base manufacturer. He can help you out.

Remingtons are known for the receiver not being machined square.  I have read about that complaint a lot.  You will need to shim the base to get it setup right.  Tighten down the front and then add shime's under the back until it is square.  You can buy shims from most anyplace that sell scopes and mounts.
