Remington 700 base and rings, What style, brand?

I have a new 700 Sendero SF II in 300RUM. I am looking for the highest quality base and rings for this rifle. I am putting a Leupold Mk4 or VX-III with TMR on it. I would like to have stainless base and rings if possible. I have heard both sides of the 1 or 2 piece base situation, which has just left me confused. I am just trying to have the most Solid and Precise system in place. I am not sure which way to go. Please help with these 2 things.

A) 1 or 2 piece base and why (benefits, problems, brand, etc.)

B) type of base (benefits, problems, brand, etc.)

Thanks in advance for any input into helping with my rookie confusion.

Re: Remington 700 base and rings, What style, brand?

If you want a stainless finished set of bases and rings there are several companies that make them...though I have yet to see a set of stainless or silver bases and rings that even come close to matching the rifle finish, and your Sendero has a bright stainless steel polished finish

Leupold's dual dovetail is very sold set up. If you want the absolute best and rock solid mount, then a Badger Ordnance one piece base and rings may be your ticket for around $300.00 plus smackers.

Re: Remington 700 base and rings, What style, brand?

I went with the badger ordinance rings and base, and have been very happy with them.

I went with a 1 piece base because it seems more solid to me...ie..alignment.

heard a ton of good about badger's stuff, so thats why I went with them. Although I have heard good stuff about a lot of different brands out there....ken farrel, nightforce, leupold mk4 stuff, also the burris signiture rings, etc...

ordered my stuff from SFWA online, good prices and fast shipping.

Re: Remington 700 base and rings, What style, brand?

Both of these look great. I am not stuck on the stainless idea and these look to be what I am looking for. Next question as a result of looking at the website. What MOA if any should I get? I am not sure where this comes in to play. Again, thanks in advance. I appreciate the help this board offers, especially us new to this side of shooting.

P.S. I have a shot a (Marlin 336 .30-30 with a Simmons scope from walmart) all my life and now I have a bit of land that you can have shots further than 200 yards.
