    These two Sakos were outfitted with scopes, bought from members on this site. Thank you northernlights and rangerAV! Left is a 3 lug 25-06 and a 222mag. I know, I know, the -06 scope is too high. But with vintage Sako "high" rings, it was touching the barrel. Which was weird to me, because I've mounted 50mm scopes with vintage high rings on earlier Sako rifles. I guess the heavier contour barrel of the Garcia era wouldn't allow it? 70730.jpeg

    That's why I never use a scope with larger than a 40mm objective. If it's too dark to see it with a 40mm lens set at 6X then it's just simply too dark to be shooting (at least in most U.S. jurisdictions where shooting more than 30 minutes after sundown is prohibited.)

    Try the Extra-Low rings on those Opti-Lock bases.

    Thanks Paulson, I'll certainly try that. Got the rifle right before deer season, so I got excited and used what I had on hand.
