Re: Newbie Scope Mount Questions

So for scope mounting. . .First, my plan is to bed the base, buy top quality rings and bases and forget the lapping. Is this good thinking?
<font color="blue"> I would give strong consideration to Burris Signature rings. The inserts compensate for a lot of variables. They are a good thing. A lot of the LRH people use them. Plus with the proper insert selection/arrangement you can achieve the 20MOA taper. </font>
Next, I want to use a 1 pc picatinny base for strength/straightness of mounting and because it should be accurate enough to allow scope removal with just a quick sight in. <font color="blue">No comment re: this. </font>
Last, I'm looking at Warne, Farrell G Force, TPS bases with matching manufacturer's rings. I think my preference is TPS due to price, details of their parts on their web site, and real picatinney dimensions. Any opinions of any of these makers good or bad? BO is just too much money!<font color="blue"> What I said above </font>
Last, recticle alignment. I've been sold on the deadeye precision scope leveler, i think, but is there something else as good or better? <font color="blue">For the distances you are able to shoot w/the WSM the level on the action is plenty good. Why not consider a laser level(10 bucks or so) and projects a nice fine line. Have used it with good success. </font>
Oops, one more. . .Do you use one of the anti-cant bubble levels for checking your hold on your gun? If so, which one? If I use the short one, can I check it without shifting the gun? I would prefer that one as it's scope ring is AL instead of plastic.<font color="blue">I have one made by a fella on this board, though he ran out of rings... Do a search on Fiftydriver, he uses one that is a flip up arrangement. Don't know the name but looks good. </font>
BTW. . .Anything good or bad to say from Super Sniper owners?<font color="blue"> Have one. Love it. Will get another. But, remember they are fixed power which limits their application a bit. </font>
Oh yea, I forgot one more. . .I'm considering a 20 MOA base to put me more in the center of the scopes adjustments at long range to allow me to dial windage instead of dialing the elevation clear to the top and thenm having no windage. <font color="blue">See Burris Sig. comment. I wouldn't worry about cheek weld quite yet. </font>
