What MOA base to use?

I just bought a 700 P in 338 Lapua and plan to shoot it out to 1000 or a little farther. I have a Leupy LR scope with 125 MOA of adjustment. Should I go with the 20, 25, or 40 MOA mount? I would like to be able to shoot close range with it also.

Also, I am setting up my 700PSS in 308 for medium range. I will keep it under 750 yards, so I am thinking the 20 MOA base for it. It will have a scope with ~65 MOA of adjustment. Will this setup work?

Sounds like a interesting set up
What scope did you get that has 125 moa of adjustment?
I prefer the seeking rings and bases
Nice solid set up for me with my 7mm rem mag and a Leupold VX3

It's a Lupy VX3 LR 4.5-14x50 according to the web site, it has 125 MOA of adjustment. So centered, it has +- 62 MOA.

Well if thats true then a 40 moa base would be the best bet. you would need more then 55 to not get a 100 yard zero. You should be plenty safe.

Re: What MOA base to use?

I put together a sendeo with Leupold vx3 6.5-20x50 with seekins rings and a 20 moa base.
Its a 7mm remington mag.
With a 200 yard zero I am 12 moa from the bottom of the scope
My scope has 94 moa of travel I need 32 moa to get to 1000 yards
soI have 50 moa left over
hope this helps you decide what to do
I would think you would be fine with a 20 moa base
just my 2 cents
