    Scope rails

    Pros and cons of steel vs aluminum?

    Looking at getting a 20moa base and just curious about best way to go.
    Warne steel base for my savage not that cheap and I see theriflescopestore is selling aluminum EGW pretty cheap. Anyone used these or other suggestions.

    Never had any strength issue with aluminium rail. If weights not an issue go steel for the strength factor, lite weight rig use the aluminium
