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 all helps. This is an update on my quest. So far Burris hasn't replied to my enquiriy. Tally has kindly replied, and although they have base for my rifle, they don't have 20MOA base. Now it appears that USoptics would be my only option. I'm awaiting for their confirmation that they have what I need.

    The 15 MOA basses will give you a zero at 1000Yards with little are no elevation on the scope
    with most loads for the 7 mag, So even a 10MOA will add all that you will need.

    Most of the guys that use 20+ MOA are shooting 338s from county to county.

    I like the 15 MOA on my 338 because it put me into the bottom half of the elevation adjustments
    but will still allow me to zero @ 100 yards for my elevation drop chart.

    Just a suggestion

    Thanks J E Custom. Burris has replied, requesting info on scope to be used. While I have Leupold VariX3 3.5x10 50mm obj., I'm open to reccommendation on scopes to be used for LR. I just want to have scope+base&rings set up for my Sako L61R for LR use.

    Re: What base and rings for Sako action?

    Don't know if you have purchased yet. I just went through this same issue. I chose to go with Richard at Nearmfg.com and use his 20 MOA Base and Alpha ringset. 20 MOA is a bit more than I need. However, Both are made by Near Mfg and are made for each other. My opinion is that matched components will provide the best possible fit for a scope setup.

    It will be nice to mount a base and ring set that are specifically made for my Sako 75 7STW. I also have a Leo 4.5 X14 X 40 w/ 30mm Tube rings that I will be using. The 30mm tube will provide a bit of extra surface contact for the rings - that should help with any recoil. It will also give a few more MOA adjustments when compared to a 1" tube.

    Perhaps next year I can upgrade to a Swaorski or Nightforce.
