Thompson Center Pro Hunter, scope mount base ???
I have a Thompson Center Pro Hunter
I have the Leupold scope base and rings on the black powder barrel, the bottom of the scope base makes contact with the barrel the complete length of the base.
Today I purchased the rem 7mm mag barrel for it and the Leupold scope base DOES NOT have full contact the compete length of the base to the barrel. About 1/3 of the base towards the muzzle is not making flush contact with the barrel,, the reason is the barrel is taper downward.
This is a one piece base and has 4 screws attaching it to the barrel in the back half of the base.
I'm wondering if this is the correct base, Leupold #54798, and if it is going to work.
