    How to get 20 moa on a sako?

    Just setting up a sako for a mate with an hd5 to go on top and would like to be able to get plenty of elevation adjustment hence the base.
    I have done plenty of tikkas but have only seen rails drilled and tapped on where I woukd prefer something a bit prettier.
    Any ideas out there

    Ask Trevor Mallard? Hes the Moa man

    I think there was an issue with donor egg size though so 20 could be a stretch

    Try putting in the Burris Z Sig offset inserts into the optilocks?
    I have a set of the 5/10/20 MOA inserts, had to use them for a sideways facing AK rail.

    I read the blurb wrong as they fit every thing except the xs action!
    I now wonder if I can score one from berreta nz?
