But I'm open to suggestions.
Ken makes a very good product. However I'd encourage you to look at the EGW heavy duty. It's very stout.
I have one on a 300 Rum and another on a 300wm. They both more than get the job done for me.
Also, unless you are planning to shoot well beyond 1000yds I see no reason to go with that much cant. A zero or 10 MOA rail should be more than adequate.
The more cant in your rail the higher the rings you are going to need to have the bell clear the barrel.
