    That's a plumb nelly of a getup ya got there. Have you ever tried using dual-dovetail bases before. Albeit, if one wishes to have irons on their rig, dual dovetails arent the friendliest of setups. But I know that a set of regular Leupold bases would allow the scope's bell to come down some, giving your cheek a nicer resting spot.

    The stock looks to be a heritage model...?

    Actually, the stock is the Platinum. The Heritage has a cheek riser.
    As far as my scope mounting, at this point, I think my preferred option is to modify the rail to shorten/taper it to allow the scope to move further rearward. I have a barrel chest and a short neck, so my issues with scopes is getting them back enough.

    This morning I was at the 100yd line with my Marlin. I mounted a dot sight, a Athlon to see how it went. After throwing away countless rounds trying to adjust and gain some consistency, I removed it. I then went and shot a neat group, with the irons. I keep coming back to irons, I fitted a skinner front and rear a while back.

    Nothing wrong with dots, used them a lot over a many years,from eotec to aimpoint. But dont underestimate good ol irons.

    A little tip on using Rem 700 sights when Silver soldering. The older style sight is solder friendly. That's model with step elevator. The newer series is made of some kind of cast metal that I've had no luck soldering. Most rears can be soldered with Brownells Low Tem
    Silver solder. That can be done with propane torch.
