I'm in the proccess of mounting 3 scopes on 3 savages. I noticed on a couple it looks like the shell may contact the turrent of the scope on ejection. My question is does it really matter? I can't imagine something like that throwing the scope off especially after all that shock from recoil, but then again, I've been wrong before.

It should not matter. Scopes should be capable of taking a lot more abuse than an ejected case clanging into it.

Are you asking about a 10/110 BA? If so, you have nothing to worry about unless the turret sticks out past the port about 4".

I assume you mean the empty casing is hitting the turret when you are ejecting out an empty case after firing. If it were mine I would readjust the scope. I would not want the casing hitting my scope. It will wear on the caps. Eventually. Tom.

They'll clear with room to spare. Trust me, I own 18 of them.
