I'm looking at bases right now and wondering if anyone is using a one piece base. Do most use two piece bases? Should I get a 20 moa set? I'm kind of new to LRH and shooting so any help is appreciated.
The most extensive info I have found is 2 sources. The first is a Shooting Times Magazine. They did a review on the exact rifle you own and different ammo. Look for the Dec 09/Jan 2010 issue. If you can find it, it should give you some insight to your rifle. For the caliber alone, go to: 6.5-284 Cartridge Guide
For a base, I wouldn't think a 20MOA would be necessary for the speed the cartridge carries, but shouldn't hurt anything. More clicks in the scope isn't necessarily a bad thing. Maybe check out rings instead. What I mean by this is that Burris makes a ring that you can use inserts for MOA adjustments verses being stuck with a solid base. One piece base is all I use.
The Burris Signature Z rings allow you to purchase inserts in increments of 10MOA. This keeps from having to purchase a solid base or try to shim which can cause binding in the scope. I use these rings plus a 20MOA base on my LR rig (300WSM w/ heavy bullets and low velocity). It allows me to keep my scope at its lowest click count to give me more vertical adjustment.
Here is what I use:
EGW Savage RB (Round Back) Picatinny Tactical Rail Scope Mount - $39.99 : Evolution Gun Works , World Class Precision Parts
Scopes - rings by Burris Optics
You are going to need the exact base only in the long action. Should you choose the 20 MOA then a standard set of rings to fit the scope body you have should be all you need.
That's about all can help you with at this point.
