Re: absolute best mount for my new sako?

Same opinion here, go with the Near base. I have a set of Warne's and a set of Leupolds in a shoe box that I tried first.

I have 2 Sako 75 rifles, a Finnlight in 30-06 and a 300 RUM. I've tried the Sako rings, the Leupolds and Warne. I like the Warne best. Leupold now makes a QD base now, that might be something to check out. I have the Leupold QD base and rings on 3 other rifles and like them. I'm not a longrange shooter \ Hunter yet. 300 yards is as far as I go. The 300 RUM has a 2-10X44 Nikon tactical scope with meduim 30mm Warne rings. The Finnlight has a high Leupold dove tail mount with a Pentax 4.5-14X50 white tail scope on it. I also have a Sightron S1 3-9 mildot with Med Leuplod dovetail mount for the Finnlight. Thought I use it as a QD scope \ backup scope. Only shot the rifle with the Pentax so far. The Sako mounts are in a shoebox with other Misc. scope mounting hardware that I don't use.
