Re: VX-3 6.5-20X50 LRT Revews

what type of a gun is this going on?
How far are you wanting shoot? If you are wanting to get out to around 1000 yards you will probably need a moa base
the rings/base you have are they the type with the screw in the
back on both sides?(these are junk)
I prefer the weaver style of rings and bases preaty solid
I really like my seekings

    I also like the warne rings and bases I have a set on my 300wsm
    work real good
    pick something that bolts up solid

    Also this will be a 1000yd gun. I do have enough elevation on my turrets to get me out to about 1300

    do you shoot factory or reloads?
    best I can guess you will need about 22 moa to get you to 1000 yards so you might make it with out a moa base

    If you are setting this up for a long range gun I would go with good rings and bases
    for this I prefer seekins but that just me there are plenty others out there.
    For that far out I would get a 20 moa base
