Re: Scope questions

I don't know about Weaver but Leupold makes a nice one piece base built specifically for long range shooting. I believe it's under $20. I have 3 of them and they work well.

In a few weeks, I will have a new one piece base/ring that I designed. Prototypes are being CNC machined now. It will have 30MOA built in and the rings are actually built in. The only moveable part is the ring caps.
By summer, I will have these for sale.

    I am going to have the first few made in aluminum just to get everything right. The final product may be made of stainless, still not sure. Aluminum is nice because it is light and easy to machine. The stainless is a pain in the neck to work with but obviously would hold up better. That is something that will have to be worked out. Cost is another factor. I will keep the board updated on this project.

    Longrangehunter--
    Bruce Baer makes a two piece set that are marketed by LightforceUSA. They are 20 MOA Weaver style with two slots in each base and attach with Torx screws. They are about $62 from Brownells. They are built like a tank. Best deal out there for a precision machined set of tapered bases. Good Luck!.... CJ

    Scope questions

    Any recommendations for an economical quality 20MOA weaver base for a Rem700 LA?

    Should I go with one or two piece bases or does it even matter?

    Chris, thanks for the tip. That does sound like a great deal. I was just about to order some stuff from Brownells anyway. I really don't want to spend $100+ for Badger Ordnance or Mark IV's.

    Thanks for the tip. Will rings designed for weaver bases fit properly on picatinny bases and vice versa?
