Suggestions on 20 MOA bases

I am mounting two vortex vipers 6 x 20 x44 30 mm scopes on two of my bench rifles and want 20 moa bases. Rem 700 VLS 308 and a savage 12 BVSS 223. All of my other rifles have the standard Leupold double dove tail rings and bases. What can y'all recommend?

Thanks

    I just use the weaver tac as they are easiest to find local, they are cheap yet serviceable but if you do not cut the stupid extended front two lugs off the front they will interfere with the scope's bell. I have and do use them but I think my next rifle will get a farell base. For those light recoiling guns you could use the DNZ gamereaper w/integral rings at 20 moa.

    Near Mfg. You won't find better...anywhere. Are they expensive? Yeah...but Richard (Near) still sells his products for less than he has in them in machine time. His rails are always straight and his one-piece rail/rings can be had in whatever cant (10 MOA, 20 MOA, 30 MOA) that you want. They will be precise and will never leave a mark on your scope if you follow his torque specs.

    I have 3 sets now.

    EGW Heavy Duty bases are what I use.

    I second using Near mounts. A work of art and extraordinarily precise. Call him and will build to fit.
