I ordered a 300 RUM today, Remington 700 CDL, and am curious what scope mounting system is supposed to be more sturdy. Should I go with the heavy weaver style tacticles, or the dovetail style.
I will be putting a fairly heavy scope on and will be packing this in a scabbard while riding horseback on a young horse during most of my hunting time. I want a mount that will hold up to the occaisonal drop or rodeo. I am smart enough to do a visual inspection and check the zero after either happens, just asking for input.
