Scope mounts are not a one-size-fits-all accessory. Since every style of action and every style of firearm has a slightly different configuration, ejection methods, and grips, you need to get specific. So if you’re into long range shooting, there are bolt action scope mounts available for you. There are two primary styles of scope mounts, one and two pieces, and each has their pros and cons. You’ll need to discuss the specifics with your IFA specialist to find out which one will work best for you.
One Piece Scope Mounts
One piece mounts tend to be a bit heavier, as there’s more material to them. However, this also makes them sturdier and more rigid. One piece mounts can be found at different heights, and for a bolt action you’ll probably want a shorter one, to keep the viewing easier. As you have a bolt action, the way you shoot it will also influence what kind of scope you’re looking for. Make sure that the holes drilled for the mount are aligned and done properly.
It is worth it to have a professional do the job, just for that added security.One piece scopes work well with powerful calibers and are ideal for bench shooting.If you get the wrong style, it can create problems with chamber clearance and clearing misfeeds so be sure to check before you buy.
Two Piece Mounts
Two piece mounts are much lighter than one piece, perfect for those who are looking to keep the weight of their rifle down. They also offer more space and clearance for accessing the chamber, perfect for those who need quick and easy access.While the two piece mounts are easy to align, they still require alignment.
Another advantage is that they can be swapped between several different rifles, whereas the one piece is usually designed for a specific rifle. The two-piece scope mounts work well for hunters and those who spend a lot of time outdoors.Your needs and uses of the rifle are what should make the final decision when looking at bolt action scope mounts.
