What's your preferred scope mount base?

What's your preferred scope base for long range? Would you recommend 1 piece Picatinny rail, standard dovetail, double dovetail, others?

I like the EGW bases reasonable and excellent machine work. 0 or 20 degree Remi, Win, & Savage.

1 piece Picatinny rail.

1st choice Near Mfg. Pricey, but worth it.

Near Manufacturing - Rifle Scope Bases

2nd choice Seekins. Arguably the best value there is.

Seekins Precision :: Innovative Products for Precision Shooters

JMO....and the ones I've dealt with. There are likely many other good products available.

Good luck.

Seekins is my first choice. Then Warne as I have had great customer service from them and a good product as well. I have a Badger Ord base on my primary rifle though and it is rock solid.

Seekins is my first choice over Badger due to prices.
Warne makes good stuff too.

Re: What's your preferred scope mount base?

lately I have been moving all my guns over to one piece rails. it makes swaping scopes in particular a high power load development scope a snap. but my favorite mounting setup is when the action has the rail machined into the action itself. surgeon and BAT actions come to mind.

Re: What's your preferred scope mount base?

I'm in the process of changing all my benchrest and long range guns over to the 20 MOA Nightforce picatinny one piece bases. The last one I changed was a 22-250 in a Rem. 700 VSSF. With the Leupold QD bases and rings that was on it previously, I only had 2 MOA of right windage. The rings and bases were obviously made off center. The scope is a 24X Leupold Target Scope. With the NF base and weaver style rings I have about 25 MOA left and right windage as well as 20MOA of extra elevation. I've had equally good results with the other three guns I've converted so far. I only wish that NF or Badger made steel 1 inch rings as well as the 30mm. Nightforce is well worth price paid.
