BM, On my Edge I used Nightforce 25 MOA Base and their 30mm Rings. Get to 1000 easy.
Good Luck

I know this may not be the coolest combo but I'd suggest Burris dual dovetail bases and Signature DD rings.

Very secure and gives MOA. It would be cheaper than anything else of equal strength.

Can't go wrong with Burris Extreme Tac rings for $50.00, they do what the much more expensive rings do and some guys here have them on their EDGE rifles and like them. I've got the 1" and 30mm models on all my rifles and the $$ I saved going this route allows me to buy more toys
