rings and bases

ordered a Sightron sIII 6-24x50 scope to go on my new 338 RUM. Action is Remmington 700. Can I get some suggestions on rigs and bases? I've always used Talley rings and bases, but want to go with 1 piece base with 20 MOA built in. Thoughts?

    Re: rings and bases

    I have two Remington 700 Senderos chambered in 7mm STW with Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP EBR-1 MOA Reticle scopes on each of them. The set-up I use on each of them is a 20 MOA EGW for the Picatinny rail and low Burris 30mm Tactical Rings. They seem to hold pretty well with the recoil and with the 20 MOA rail I can dial it out to over 1,000 yards if I want.

    Below are a few pictures of my twin Remington 700 Sendero 7mm STW rifles with the set-up I mentioned above.

    With that cartridge, I'd see about getting a 30 MOA base, if not a 40. Ken Farrel has some...

    You have the ballistics to shoot out to a mile... but you'll need more elevation than a 20 MOA base will give you.

    Where will you find the opportunity to ever shoot a mile? Well... we'll be hosting a 1 mile shoot this spring, date to be announced later. Southwest Virginia... should be fun.

    Thanks guys. Ended up going with Warne 20 MOA 1 piece base and Warne Tactical rings. Should be a good combo
