    Greetings, I need some advice. I just purchased the Leupold 1 piece mounts for the Rem 700SA. They are too short for the 1500. I was told they are the same mounts. Should I have purchased the Long action mounts?

    What caliber is the Howa?

    Thanks , The Howa is 223. When I tried to install the Remington 700 Sa 1 piece base, it left the rear hole exposed. It just looked too short.

    The mount only uses 3 screws. The rifle is drilled for both 1 or 2 piece mounts. If the front 2 screws and one rear screw fit ,you are good to go. Use a plug screw in the unused hole. I have the same mount in LA on my 30-06 Howa 1500 Lightning.

    Thanks for your help. That will work.
  6. Yeah, it's the same (Rem & Howa). Probably just that extra vestigial hole you don't use.
