Scope and ring question

Please help on a couple of things......I am going with a 4.5x14x40 Leupold VX-3 scope for my rifle. This will be used for target shooting and coyote hunting, my question is.......should I go with an Adjustable Objective on this scope or no ? I will be possibly shooting out to 400-500 yards.

Also, this is being mounted on a Remington model 700 Sendero , which has a heavy barrel. I want the scope as close to the barrel as possible.......I need to know what Leupold rings to go with. Will low rings work, or will I have to go with medium rings ?

Thanks guys.

Re: Scope and ring question

I would personally opt for a side focus instead of the AO. Reaching up while your on the gun to turn the AO is a pain.

If your using STD Leupold mounts, you need to get the medium rings. You didnt specify LR on your scope so I'm assuming 1" tube as opposed to 30mm?

Re: Scope and ring question

Any scope over 10 or 12 power should have an AO or side fucus adjustment on it
