Re: Suggestions for rings & bases....
Thanks for the link. "Community Service" looks like a great rifle! Everything a #1 ought to be....
The 37 calibre is my favourite and I think it can be quite accurate with good loads and Sierra 300s.
The 33 family certainly offers advantages in availability of true long range components. The 338./.378 is a most impressive cartridge, however, if I decide to go that route, I'll probably use the Lapua just to avoid the belt.
This ling range stuff is new to me and I still have much to study and learn. Most of the experienced LR shooters are really pushing me toward the 33 calibre and it may be prudent to listen to those who know much more than I on this subject.
When I talked with the folks at Sinclair, I received quite a lecture regarding .33 components vs. .375! It was very educational.
Thanks for your comments and congrats to your son on the fine elk.
