    Remington 700 LA 30 moa Picatinny

    As mentioned above. I have too much under my 100mm zero with a 15 moa rail. If that's not difficult enough I also need an HD rail with solid slots as I am running a LaRue LT120 QD base. I have had a frustrating look around and got sick of all the crap out there. I know some of you guys like a challenge.

    Thanks

    Just fit a correct thickness shim the back of the rail you have and cast liquid metal shims at the front and back to take out the stress... Same procedure as in the case of a rail that has a gap under one end and needs to be shimmed with liquid epoxy to remove any tresses from the receiver except you are causing the gap using a small piece of shim stock (say 5mm x 10mm long)...

    Thought of something like that but will have to pack the back up over 3mm so longer screws etc and don't want to go that path. Thanks for the suggestion but on a long range rifle I would prefer a more solid option. I know I can get one from EGW but that will take time. I thought I would try local first.

    ?????? Not sure what you are thinking of, but if it's already a 15moa rail you're only making a small adjustment. All of my Nightforce and EGW rails come with about a 0.5mm gap at the back end anyway, the Loctite liquid metal shim gets cast in place and once set and the screws are torqued into place the rail ain't going nowhere. I tend to degrease both surfaces and let the shim bond in place on both sides. That hasn't let go on a .338LM, three .308's and a couple of 7mmRM's so far. If you need to release it a little heat and it pops off.

    I suspect, given my experience of Rem actions and rails, it's very likely that you are currently bending the arse of your rail down and stressing the receiver and rail and negating the 15moa tilt. Have you tried fitting the rail using the front action screws only and seeing if there is a gap at either end and the next check is using one screw at a time to check that they aren't too long and bottoming out.
