Picatinny vs DNZ style integrated base.

Like the title says, which do you prefer and why? I understand you get alot of adjustment with the picatinny, but is that all? Thanks

DNZ are zero MOA built in while picatannys can be obtained with 20, 30 and 40 MOA.

You would be wise for LR to use the 20 + MOA picatanny.

you can add an ACI and rail mounted scope level to the picatanny, while you cannot on the DNZ.

I beleive i need about 24MOA to get to a 1000yrds. A viper pst gives me 68 total moa, so why would i need a 20 moa base?

Re: Picatinny vs DNZ style integrated base.

Regardless of either's attributes the picatinny or weaver mounts are so popular their
versatility alone makes them the better choice. Not to mention the 1/4 moa return to
zero most of the better one piece mounts deliver.

Scopes and bases rarely work out to put you in the optical center at 34 MOA each way.

Most like a setup with a little more leeway and verstatility
