Re: Need scope mounting suggestions

Warne makes a 20MOA steel base, that is decent quality, and it's cheaper than buying a Badger or Leupold rail. Don't get me wrong, aluminum is nice, but steel (to me) is preferable if you can afford it. If you want something really good, get a Murphy Precision rail .

Good luck.

    If you are going with a rail, i suggest looking at a NEAR Mfg rail. Richards stuff is top shelf. You wont regret is. I've had 4 and for all the mil and gov they produce, You'll almost always speak to the owner himself.

    Are you working with a budget? I have several setups I like:

    Rem 700 SA- MK4 20moa base ($130.00-ish) & low Burris XTR's ($60-ish)
    Caliber- Lazzeroni Patriot

    Rem 700 LA- NightForce Direct Mount 20moa ($200.00) One piece base & rings.
    Caliber- 6-284

    Rem 700 LA- Badger 20moa base (8-40 screws) ($135.00) & American Rifle Company 34mm Rings ($200.00). Most expensive setup, but easily the strongest.
    Caliber- 338RUM

    BTW, Talley also produces their one piece ting mounts in 20 MOA height differential.

    I tend to use Warne myself, or Ralley for reduced recoil. Hard to beat Warne on a heavy recoil firearm.

    No matter what ring set, be sure to line-align them and lap them.
