Re: Scope mount recommendations

Check out DNZ. I have a 1-piece GameReaper mount, and I have to say, for the money, I'm highly impressed. Be sure to torque to spec, and don't overtighten or you will break the aluminum screws. They require 25 inch-pounds, and your scope is guaranteed not to move. I recommend buying a Wheeler FAT Wrench, if you don't already have one. The mounts are extremely lightweight and strong.

Re: Scope mount recommendations

With a 1 piece setup you know you're pretty dang straight and not bending your scope tube.

I have been installing and messing with Leupold rings and bases as long as I can remember. I've got them pretty figured out.

That said, I still prefer a picatinny base or a 1 piece base & rings setup for straightness.

John, you're right, those Seekins rings are nice. TPS TSR rings, Nightforce, and Badger rings are all nice, too.
