50 MOA adjustable scope mount

I need and adjustable 50 MOA scope mount. I am aware of one made by Ivey Design of Tenn. Are any of you using one made by anyone. Comments.

I am aware of Harbor Engineeering that has 100 MOA and up capabilities for huge bucks. Only need 50 adjustable!

Burris Signature rings give you 40.

Re: 50 MOA adjustable scope mount

I'd agree w/ mesh... Get some 'regular' LR bases... Leupold makes a 15MOA 1-piece Redfield style dovetail base, Badger Ordnance makes a honkin' big 1-piece 20 MOA picatinny/weaver rail, and Ken Farrell makes some pretty nice 20MOA (think he also makes up to 30-35) two-piece weaver bases. Combine those w/ the Burris Signature 'Zee' rings (Weaver base) and you can get a butt-load of elevation available for a reasonable amount of $$$.

My only gripe about the Burris rings is that along side something like a set of GG&G or Badger Ord 30mm rings, they seem kind of... wussy. But, if you need the elevation shims, it's about the only game in town other than a custom setup.

Just out of curiousity, what do you need that much more elevation than what is in your scope already? Even a .308 Win "only" needs about 35-40MOA to reach 1k. What are you using, and how far are you shooting?

Re: 50 MOA adjustable scope mount

milanuk,

This is for my .408 Wildcat that has 20 MOA tapered base integral with the Action. I will be using a standard 12 x 42 Nightforce to start with and want to get at least to 2500 yds.

Might talk to Crow Mag and ask him how that adjustable base he has on his 338 Yogi built by Dave Tooley in NC is working. If I remember right it has 4 postitions with 15 MOA for each postions for a total of 60 MOA.

I asked Dave about it when I saw the gun at the Nationals last year and Dave said he was not building those bases anymore, but Dave is a business man. if it works good, and with the right amount of money, he will make you one. I know Dave, he is not cheap but he can be had.

Contact the President of the Williamsport club, Hubie Hakes.

He makes a base that will give you even more then 50MOA and it is a dandy.

His number is---570-322-1721 Tell him the action you want to put it on and he can make it.

Later

Re: 50 MOA adjustable scope mount

Thanx to Bounty Hunter and Daryl.

I cant use an adjustable base because I already have an integral base with 20 MOA. I will contact your guy tonight, Daryl. All of you should look at the bases I am considering at http://iveydesign.home.mindspring.com and let me know what you think.
