Exactly what I was thinking. Might as well get a one-piece mount if it's going to be in the way anyways. I'm out of money for a new scope after buying a new rifle and a whole reloading setup, so I'm going to use my old Simmons 44Mag 6.5-20x44 AO TT for now. That scope is still on my NEF 223 but as soon as I finish working up a good load for it (this week hopefully) I'll make the switch.
it looks like it would be in the way every time you go to put your shells in

Ben, you misunderstood my explanation. Take the rear mount off, turn it around and mount it where the front mount goes. That way the overhanging part still hangs over the bolt but it is out front now. Then put the front mount on the rear and there's nothing to hit the bolt. If I'm not explaining it well enough let me know and I'll send you a picture of my gun with the mounts swapped. It really gave me the eye relief I needed doing it.
John, I tried swapping them base around so the overhang is in back, but then my bolt won't shut because the base is in the way.
