suggest lightweight ring and base for Rem 700

I am about to get my Rem Titanium back from the smith who just re-chambered it in 6.5-284.

Previously it was a light n handy rifle and wore the Talley two piece rings, but now it will become a mid to long range hunting rifle with a Leupold 8.5-25 Mk IV ER/T on it and needs a 20MOA base and some rings. For the rings I was thinking of the NF ultralights but I can't find a base that suits the build.

Any suggestions?

Cheers.

    TPS makes a aluminum alloy Base that is suppose to be as strong as Steel & they have titanium Rings.

    Even though the NF ultralights do weigh less than the steel ones, they are still heavy. They are great products, I use them exclusivly, but if I was trying to shave the weight I would go a different route or in my case, I would just have to lose extra weight somewhere else cause the NightForce products are great!

    Why not just Talley light weight, one piece? I can't imagine a 6.5-284 would need a 20min base for mid-to-long range. Hard to get much better or lighter. I have about the same trajectory, and I only need about 21min to 1000.

    i used a DNZ one piece base and ring combo for my lightweight rem 700 build. it has 20 moa taper and is quite light. around 120 buckskins.

    Neither can I and those are the rings I used on my Savage 308 LWH. IMO Talley makes a fine product and you can deal direct with them.
