New shooter looking for advice

I an in the process of purchasing a savage 12bvss in 22-250 and wanted you experts opinions on what accessories to use. I have purchased a Bushnell Elite 4-15 Tactical with a mil-dot reticle. Wanted more info on what rings and base you guys recommend. I would like to successfully tak ground hogs out to the 500 yd range and looking for a set up that will help get me there.

+1 on the EGW base and Burris Signature Z rings. They come with different offset inserts

I agree with the above three statements. Looks like your choice should be pretty easy.

Re: New shooter looking for advice

Thanks for all the great advice. I will place the order from swfa. Do most of you go with the medium or tall rings and Im assuming I would want the 0 MOA base from EGW.
