20 MOA base Help!!

Newbie here, I have an Accuracy International AE 308 police sniper, I'm looking for more elevation to get out to 800 yrds. The way the gun is set up I can only get to 500yrds then I run out of elevation, does anyone know of any 20 MOA base manufacture out there that might have a base that will fit my gun. Best Regards Steve

Re: 20 MOA base Help!!

What scope are you using? You should be able to get at least 800-900 in .308 with most decent scopes. Is your windage centered?

Re: 20 MOA base Help!!

If your rifle has base spacing the same as US commerical rifles, then you should be able to get a Farrel base from companies like Midway, and Graff. If not, consider a set of Burris Sig rings with inserts. The inserts will be able to give you up 30 MOA of tilt/elevation which will be enough to solve your problem.

Personally, I would go with the Burris rings since it is a no brainer and well priced.

Sealdoggy I'd have to second the Burris sig. rings. I've got them on a 300 mag holding a Zeiss 6.5x20 conquest and think they are the about as easy to use as it gets.
