EGW 20moa base burris xtreme tactical rings
Sightron Siii 6-24x50LRMOA
It'd be run as a single shot if i went this route.What are ya'lls thoughts?
I think you're right on track. I'll offer a couple more ideas.
You'll need a cheaper/better brake than the ones McGowen use. I'd recommend a Ross Schuler brake. It's the best brake for the $$$ bar none. He can also thread your barrel.
I'll also point you in the direction of a Stockade Pdog/Tactical stock. It's better suited for long range work.
My last suggestion would be Signature Zee's instead of XTR's. They hold just as well, protect the scope, and can fine tune windage or add more elevation for those longer shots.
