I want to mount a new Zeiss Diavari VM/V 3-12x56T* with #8 Illuminated reticle 30mm scope to a Rem 700 KS Custom Shop .300 Win Mag rifle.
My problem: What rings & bases do I mount the scope in? I am willing to buy GOOD rings & bases from Badger Ordnance, Niteforce, Kelby, Jewell, etc. I have 2 sets of standard height Badger Ordnance rings with 1" inserts I picked up, but I know they won't work with the 56mm objective. I also like the Burris Signature Zee rings with live inserts. Have considered Kelby rings w/ Kelby Rem bases and heard or read that Jewell is also coming out with live center rings.
HELP!!! I want to mount this scope securely and without making ring marks on it, if possible. I have lapped Leupold & Ruger rings before and I have Sinclair & Russ Haydon ring lapping kits, so if necessary, lapping is no big deal.
All input is appreciated.
