Re: 300 Win Mag Savage Introduction HELP
Congrats on the new rifle. I recently purchased the same model in 6.5-284. You will get many great answers and opinions, but here is my .02.
Base, Many good bases to choose from, but I went with the Blackhawk! 20 MOA base. Aluminum, but sturdy, I liked the feel and heard good reviews. (around $40-$50)
Rings, Burris Tactical Rings don't suck, but neither to Talley, Warne, and Vortex for the price.
Glass, I am a huge Vortex fan, and without knowing your preference, I would say the Viper HS-LR in a 4-16X50 is a good bet. I love mine, and For the price, you couldn't be happier.
Rangefinders vary greatly, but I think you shouldn't skimp here. Rangefinders that say 1000 will rarely if ever actually get to 1000. Keep this in mind. I upgraded to a Bushnell Elite 1600 this year, and I ranged a few rocks at 1320. Thats far enough to accurately get to the fabled 1000 yard mark.
Good Luck getting your goodies figured out, and keep us up to date with your build, we all get excited while living vicariously through others.
