Re: Near Manufacturing

When I say "alright" I mean from a health perspective Bill not his character, I like the guy we talked for some time, just concerned, perhaps he's on holiday?

    alremkin,
    I don't have any experience with his rings, but I have three of his bases. Richard's bases are top drawer. I would put them up against any bases available. The only drawback to his bases is he doesn't seem to make any zero cant bases. On the flip side he is the only mfg. I know of who makes 10 moa bases on a regular basis. If a shooter is only going to 600 yd. max a 20 moa bases is hard to use at normal distances, where the 10 moa seems to come back to 200 yd. without using all of a scopes elevation. I am sure his rings are of the same quality as his bases. Some mail order house is stocking his bases, Cabela's or Brownell's, I don't remember which, as I always e-mail Richard and the stuff appears at your door like magic.
    hope this helps
    joe

    Hm, this sounds like good news to me, since I ordered a set of his bases and rings for my Weatherby Accumark 338/378 so I can mount my Zeiss 3x12x56mm Diavari scope on it. I sent Richard an email yesterday and had a response when I got home today, asking a question about which cant to have on my bases. He said I should have them by mid August.

    I actually knew what you ment. I just didn't put it too clearly. I guess I should have told you that I had received an email from him on Saturday. Sorry for the confusion.
