Help with rings/bases choices

So I've got a Browning A-bolt medallion and just purchased a NF 3.5-15x50 to mount on it. From what I've been reading I should get a 20 mil base correct? Also what are some good ring/base that I should get.

Thanks

Well if nightforce makes a one piece 20 moa picatinny rail for the a-bolt get that, other good choices are the seekins and the EGW. For rings nightforce ultra lights and seekins, with warne and tally good choices as well. I think having an a-bolt is going to limit your choices of bases though so Im not sure who carries bases for this model.

Thanks Pyro,

I found that EGW makes a picatinny rail for my rifle which helps a bunch. So for the rings what hight should I get?

Im not sure if the lows will work with it being a 30mm tube. I know that with my 50" 1" tube the lows would work. Call nightforce and seekins they both have always answered the phone when I've called and they will be able to tell you. I have the vortex "seekins" low rings but my objective lens is 44

Am I missing something? Wouldn't a 30 mm would work better than the a 1 inch? The scope would be naturally higher off the rifle because the tube is wider.

You are probably right. The 1" low rings are.75 and the 30mm lows are .82, I just didnt know enough to say "yes they will work", so I wasnt going to say they would. When in doubt I call the manufacturer.
