Anyone own one?
What scope mount base do you use?
The Leupold bases for the savage 10 SA does not fit. The rear is way to high and the scope does not even set level.

I "think" mines a b-square I'd have to look and its late backeast.

Thanks for the info.

Was doing some research lastnight.
And a few people mentioned using 2 front bases.
Rather than a 1 piece, or front and back 2 piece.


And here is the list from savage of bases that will fit the new accutrigger actions.

I used two front bases and it lines up perfect. I am very satisfied with the rifle and it will shoot .50" group at 250 yds. It just needs to be sat in a decent stock Choate,McMillian, or HS precision. I have seen true snipers put 4 bullets through the same hole with this .308 @ 200 yds.

Mine are Luppy The new savage with the accu trigger are a differnet reciver from the ones without. The old ones are flat on top and the new ones with the accu trigger are are round. Let me know if you need the part # I can try to find the box if so

I have a new Savage Model 10FP LE1A. Same problem with the mount. Originally got a Leupold for the Model 10, but it has a flat rear mount. Finally got the NEW mount just released with CURVED rear bottom. Two piece, but works great! If you are desperate, you can buy a Weaver type directly from Savage Customer Service (I called, but opted to wait for the Leupold.)

I love this gun (.308 20"bbl Choate stock, but if you handload, what a difference. Cheap factory .308 2" @ 100 yds. Handloads @100 yds, cloverleafs.

Enjoy

p.s. be really careful and use the SHORT screws up front :) You will not be able to see anything wrong until you try and close the bolt. No damage, but will not rotate all the way. According to Savage, common error.
