Re: Sendero rings bases

I'm awaiting the arrival of my SF II .300rum, nice choice! All my Rems have medium rings so I'm sticking with that height, but the Super Sniper objectives are 42 and not 50 like yours. I've used Leupold and Badger Mediums and liked them both. You may need High rings, I've never dealt with any objective over 42 so I'll allow others to set you straight [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Let us know how she shoots!

Re: Sendero rings bases

I have only seen one set of Seekins rings but they do look damn nice. I am interested to see what some of the experts think about using a large aluminum ring instead of steel, how does the overall strength hold up. I would love to use aluminum for the wieght loss but I still use mostly steel.


For your bases the Warne Tactical bases would probably be the cheapest. From what I have seen they are strong and tough. For the custom/high end route I would say to go with NEAR if he has them in stock or NightForce. EIther one will be strong as hell

take it easy

Re: Sendero rings bases

Thanks guys [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

For a sendero and 50mm objective (nightforce or Leupold) and a factory barrel you would be best off with Medium rings. If you have a large (#7) barrel you would need medium highs. The mediums work great with the factory stock and no stock modifications.

Lerch, the aluminum I use is 7075T6 and its actually very strong. the screws are grade 8 steel and I can twist off the heads @ 110in/lbs before the aluminum threads pull....
Shawn has a set of my rings and a base on his 338 edge and I havent herd that they havent performed as expected. If you want to try a set and you can break them (without breaking your scope) I will refund your $$$ and buy you any base/ring setup you want [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
