Re: Which scope rings and mounts would you use???

Mo Yote,
I too am new to the long range game but for what its worth I am exactly at the same point you are. I too just bought the identical scope as you. Using the RCBS ballistics software a 220 matchking at 3000 would require an adjustment of 25.5 inches at 100 yards. The scope we have allows 72" of elevation adjustment. So basically with standard 30mm rings, assuming being in the center of adjustment, You should still have about 10" left to spare. I am personally going to keep the extra hundred bucks in my pocket until the targets prove otherwise.

On the bases and rings, Bruce Baer makes about the best rings for the picatinny rail I've seen in 30mm with 4 screws per ring. They are really nice, they won't mar your scope and the screws won't strip out like one famous makers will. He also has tapered bases (20 moa).

I'd like to retract my previous post and now I am at the point of being humbled by disregarding you gentlemen's suggestions in an attempt to save a few bucks.
I finally got to shoot my accumark with the 6-20x50 long range with leupold 2 piece bases with adjustable rear and leupold rings and guess what.
I was dead wrong in my assumption of "being somewhere in the middle" After zeroing at 100, Out of the initial 72 inches of sight adjustment, I have about 16 left for elevation. It looks like an adjustment of 20 moa will get me at least back into the middle.
