Rings & Base which ones?

I have found the rifle, a HS precision HTR .308win. Pricy, but it means I don't have to add or change anything and finding someone I trust to so any eventual work is a problem here.

The scope will be an NF 8-34x56, so I assume the best base and rings would be NF?

1 or 2 piece?

For the moment I don't plan to shoot over 500m so I don't need that much on the may of MOA but I would hope to shoot to 1K as soon as I get a better feel for the rifle and find a good spot to set up.

Thanks.

(BTW the rifle is surprisingly "cheap" compared to any of the other American imports here - up to and over 3K or for an XB, this is 2800Euro and much more solid and better finished rifle)

This is easy, anything that will fit on a Rem. 700 will go onto the HS.

Matter of fact HS sells some very nice mounts that would be a match to the rifle. Have the HS emblem on top of each ring shell. I have them and they are great on my HS rifle.

Mate, what are "toes" and the "B" and "O" words???

I am thinking of Baer Custom, just because they sell them at the same place I'll buy the scope.(www.brunoshooters.com - very cheap NF scopes)

At $280 for one peice base and 300mm steel ringe it seems pretty steep to me.

What is the rep for this gear and what are some alternatives?

Another kwestion...

Will bases that allow 40MOA elevation sit the scope up noticably "higher"?

Joe,
"Toes" is a regular here (Little Toes), and he is very aware of my regular touting of Badger Ordnance mounts. Have to admit I REALLY like those mounts, why - because they are what they are.
Forget about 40 moa bases, no need and they would look like hell. Buy a 3.5-15 NXS or 4-16 Nikon Tactical or 6.5-20 Leupold LR and you are set.
Check out www.badgerordnance.com to see the B.O. stuff.

Re: Rings & Base which ones?

Ian what would you suggest to put on a Sako TRG-S, 30-378 FOR 500-?

Or do you know if the setup from a TRG41/42 would work on this action?

BTW have you tried the Nikon Titanium?
