Re: Savage long range 260

Go to SWFA.com. Their prices are reasonable and sometimes much lower than other vendors. They offer a huge selection of bases and rings. May want to look at EGW for their HD Base 20MOA and there HD Rings. I really like the EGW bases. They also have a host of other good optics options. Sightron SIII would need a good look at. The 8-32 or 6-24 would be the way to go.

'tank, thanks for the addition of SWFA, they are also a reputable & highly respected company to deal with. They should be more than capable of assisting the OP in selecting a Quality set of mounts.

Re: Savage long range 260

As others have said get a good scope and mount, NF is a great choice. Next best investment would be reloading equipment, if you do not own already, and work up the load your rifle likes! I have found 260 Rem an extremely easy caliber for load development. I suggest lapua brass, H4350 powder, and 142gr SMKs (target use) for bullets. Next, get a suppressor if it is legal in your state. A suppressed 260 is one sweet rifle to shoot.

Excellent choice on caliber! It is a really versatile round and SOOO easy to shoot well! You will love it!
