I'm running EGW aluminum HD bases, and TPS aluminum HD rings, and have zero complaints.

    So I have my STW being built on a winny model 70 that I will top with a NF 5x22x56. Also have a savage 6.5x284 that I will have a NF 5.5x22x50 on it. What rings and rail should I buy for each?I think the NF rings will be the key, but do I need a NF rail? I also do not think I need a 20 MOA rail as these 2 will not be the 1000 yarders.... that is for the Lapua....

    Then, I have a weatherby 257 coming.. Need a scope and mount and all for that... Was thinking about a NF 3-15 from Bob Beck....in fact I am Darn near saying I'll take the scope..
    So, please input would be appreciated...and experience...
    I see a level built into a rail at:
    http://xtremehardcoregear.com/tru_level_pic_rail.html

    ANy thoughts??? Wonder if Len has any feedback on these or anyone else...
    Like I said, interested in ya'lls experience...
    Thanks

    If you are gonna use NF rings I Personally would use the NF rail also......Most all rails are mil spec with a few exceptions( The really cheap stuff)Burris makes a really great rail and ring combo as does Leupold, I have never used NF Rings but Im sure they are top shelf
    and as for the 20moa rail you can never go wrong using it.....My thought on that is better to have it than to need and wish you had it....Glad to see your building on a Winchester action.....I love Em

    I have the same combo on two rifles and on three others have NF and Near MFG bases along with the TPS rings.

    I see no real difference in quality of the bases and the TPS rings are just excellent up and down the line.

    You'll find that NF has tighter specs with their products, so why bother with the cheaper stuff, stick with the best
    You won't regret it.

    Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner

    I have a question about Amax's.
    I ordered some to try in my custom when I get it done.
    They are 162 gr, I am wondering what twist barrels you guys are shooting them through. My new Kreiger barrel is 1-9" but I see on the Amax box , they recommend 1-8"
    I'm basically at sea level, 700-800 feet.
    Will they work?

    Thanks in advance.

    Lots of guys on here are shooting 180gr Bergers out of stock Sendero barrels with good results. Stock Sendero SF barrels are 9.25" twist.

    I can't see why the 162's wouldn't perform perfect.
