What base and rings for Sako action?

I have an old Sako in 7mmRem mag., with Leuopold mk3 3.5x10 50mm. I'd like to try using this rifle for LR. However, I was told that there is no -30MAO base available for my Sako. Is there any option for my Sako?

Thanks for your response. I was told that my Finnbear L61R (L691?) is not suitable, and that I should opt for TRG. However, getting a new rifle where I live has become quite difficult. Otherwise, I'd have purchased a new Savage custom. If I buy a new dedicated scope with suitable base+ rings, could I get a passable 800+ yards Sako? If so, what would you reccommend?

Burris makes some rings that have offset inserts and I think you can get up to 15 MOA
with them.

There are some guys on this site that have used them and maybe they will chime in and
give you more info on them.

Thanks for your kind suggestion on Burris rings. Does Burris manufacture rings + base to fit Sako? I'm only aware of dedicated rings to fit Sako action. Now I await impatiently for others' suggestions.

Re: What base and rings for Sako action?

I'm not sure why you need 30 MOA bases? A 160 gr Accubond with an MV of 3000 fps and a BC of .531 will only drop about 25 MOA @ 1000 yds. If your scope doesn't have that much travel, then I would think that 20 MOA bases would be more than enough to meet your needs. But maybe you do have a good reason for wanting the 30 MOA bases.

In any case, I looked for bases for my M85 Finnlight, and the suggestions I got were...

Talley

Talley Manufacturing, Inc., Quality Scope Rings & Mounts

Near Manufacturing

Hope this helps,

Thanks MontanaRifleman for your advices. I've sent Talley an email, requesting reccommendation. If the Tally set up can provide15MOA, I'd be happy.
