Hi guys,
I got a Weaver 3-15x tactical and mounted it in low SWFA rings on my Savage 10PC. Love the scope so far, however when I sighted in at 100 yards I had to dial up a shade over 5 mils to get on target. I'm thinking if I want to get out to 1000 yards with this setup, I'll need a 20 moa base to make up for the elevation I lost getting to zero.

Given the clearance in the picture below does anyone think it'll be an issue going with a 20 moa base or will I have to get taller rings to clear the objective?

I could go one size smaller on the Butler Creeks, as the front one is loose enough to rattle off under fire.

Weaver 3-15x EMDR

Mine did fine with http://swfa.com/EGW-HD-Picatinny-Rail-1-Piece-Scope-Mount-P45927.aspx. They are a little thicker of a mount.
