Benefits of Titanium
Yes, Titanium is cool, but there really are many reasons you should consider scope bases made from this amazing alloy.
- Approximately three times stronger than 6061 Aircraft aluminum.
- 45% lighter than carbon steel, while being just as strong.
- Incredibly corrosion resistant. Titanium is routinely used for seawater applications where stainless steels have failed.
- Titanium has a very low coefficient of thermal expansion, so point of impact shifts will not occur due to scope base growth under varying temperature conditions. (Severe problem with aluminum bases)
My titanium scope bases weigh on average 50% of what my stainless steel scope bases weigh. If you are building a target or benchrest rifle where weight classes are an issue, one of my titanium bases can save you as much as 4 oz. That is 4 oz. of larger scope, or 4 oz. of heavier barrel or receiver than your competitors.
