Re: Where to get a Mark V canted base?
Yeah, I'm having a hard time getting my brain wrapped around this one, too.
Looking at Talley's site, for two piece mounts, it seems Mk V = Vanguard at least for height, but as the height difference between front and rear ring for the Weatherbys is .125" , for Rem700 it is stated as .110 . On the other hand, my copy of "The Military and Police Sniper" by Mike R. Lau states two base heights for Rem700, pre-74 ( .117" ) and post-74 ( .100" ) . With information as differing as this, I can't even be bothered to start comparing the screw hole distances on the receivers.
If only Rem700 bases indeed did fit, I'd order the Pierce Engineering rings for my Vanguard this instant. Just like Talley lightweights, attaching directly onto the receiver, but with up to 30 MOA taper, which Talleys don't have. And, because they haven't answered my e-mails, they obviously aren't interested in manufacturing...
