Thanks, Mud. Those rings and base look great. I probably didn't make it clear, but I'm planning on keeping my 721 as is for now, but will try to save up and put a better stock on it down the road. Also, I'll look into that scope more, but it I really want to keep it simple and slimmer. I'm pushing very thick
brush at times when hunting and the less the knobs (turret and battery for reticle) stick out the better. I don't want the illuminated reticle.
I know it's probably better to have a true LRH set up and a "normal" hunting set up, but I don't see it in the cards for now. I don't really see me hunting anything big (mulie on up) with it out past 500 yards for a number of reasons. One being, the rifle is in 7mm-08. Also, the caliber is set, as I was given the reloading supplies, dies, etc. needed for it. This is the rifle (yes, I know some of you will laugh/scoff at): http://www.marlinfirearms.com/Firear...tAction/x7.asp
Anyway, keep the good ideas coming. I need all the wisdom I can get.
