Re: Scope questions

I regularly use Warne Maxima detachables and Leupold MK4's and Badger Ordnance rings on Weaver bases - these all fit fine.

I measured some steel Weaver bases and they are 0.830" to 0.840" across the top. My Badger and Near Picatinny rail type bases are about 0.835". No sweat for fit.

Re: Scope questions

Another option is Graf and sons new Excel 1 piece bases made by ken farrell. They run about $40. They are CNC'd steel, and a weaver format. These are very tall and way more solid than the Lupys. The bottom is relieved so you have better access to the chamber.
The KENFARRELL.COM site can tell you what they fit, but, doesn't have pictures.
Did I mention that these are massive bases?

Good shooting.
C'ya, John.

Re: Scope questions

the aluminum base my brother has on his Rem. 338/378 is getting beat to death. It's a wonder it still shoots great. It won't for long the way it's going. He's waiting on a one piece from Nightforce he said.

The setup your building sounds great, but I'd take the steel ones myself, no doubt.
