sendero 300RUM,VortexPST6-24x50: What mount/rings?

I know some of the experts on these forums hate these types of newbie posts. And even though I've searched and searched and found lots of advice, I didn't find anything specific to my set up. I recently bought a new Sendero II 300RUM and have a Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP on order (should get it Jan 4th). I need advice on what mount & rings to get that won't bankrupt me. Looking to spend no more than $100.

Of course - This is my first attempt at long range shooting. Not trying to break into F-Class shooting, just looking to have fun on the weekends at the lease. (Already starting to work on some loads using Retumbo and Berger 210.) Mostly -I will use this rifle for hunting (elk, mule deer, etc.).

Thank you for your advice.

I just bought a Sendero SF II 300 RUM w/ Leupold 3-9 X 40mm LR Duplex im Using the Remington Z2 Alloyed Rings. This is one Hell of a Rifle.

I have a 6-24x50mm PST FFP MOA scope that is mounted on a Savage Target action with a very heavy 26" barrel. These pictures will show you how I mounted it & what size Butler Creek covers fit without touching the barrel.

This is what I do to protect the objective lens.

SO - you think I could use the Burris Tactical low rings with their 20 MOA Pactinny base?

If you read what I did you will see what yours should look like when mounted with the components I used.

Thanks Joseph. Yeah - I read your write-up. I'm looking at the exact same setup. EGW base (20 MOA) and Burris Tactical Rings. Everyone (that doesn't seem to have experience) keeps telling me that the 50mm scope generally needs the high to extra high rings. And since I don't have (or really want) a cheek rest added to my Remington Sendero, I'd like to keep it as close to the barrel as possible (and still get a cover on it like you did).

I guess what I'm saying is - The only variable here between my setup and yours is the rifle. Are the Remington Sendero II 300RUM and your Savage close enough so that the low rings would work with my rifle too?

I've tried the stacking pennies thing and guess I'm just not a smart man or just can't follow written instructions too well.

THanks so much!
Tony

I do not have a Remington and would have to bess that it would work with my components.

Give Paul at Vortex a call and ask him for advice for your rifle.
