Re: Rem 308 LTR, Badger Bases/Rings, Leupold 4.5-14-50 ?
Guppy, I have that set up on a Rem 700 VS in 308. There is no problem. With 168-grain Sierra MK bullets at 2692 fps I have the rifle and scope BASE ZEROED at 100-yards. There is still nearly 18MOA left in the elevation under the BASE ZERO. You will have no problem. You may want to check out the Ken Farrell bases and matching rings. They are really top of the line and can be had with the 20MOA feature. I have used the 4.5-14X Leupold 1"X50MM, 4.5-14X 30MMX50MM TLR Leupold, 6.5-20X 1"X40MM Leupold, and the Nikon Tactical 4-16X 30MMX50MM all on this rifle and base. No Problem! They are all very good scopes. I like the NF scopes, and have two of them. If weight is an issue remember that the NF scope are large and heavy. They are very high quality and very repeatible, but costly and heavy.
