    I posted a similar question about a week ago, but I don't think I gave enough info. The gun is a Model 700 300 RUM w/sporter barrel. The scope is a Leupold 4.5-14X50 (1 inch tube) that is at Leupold right now getting target turrets installed. I have had it mounted on a 1 piece Leupold base w/Leupold rings. I want to be able to shoot to 1000 yards. (My gun loves 210 VLD Bergers) Do I need a base that has 20 MOA such as a Seekins or EGW? Also what kind of rings do I need? And what height? Or do I just stick with what I got? The reason I am asking is that I don't see too many (hardly any) long range rifles on this site that are set up with the type of bases and rings that I currently have. So, if you were in my position, what would you do? Thanks.

    Near mounts are the way to go, you will never look for a better mount.

    Sorry for the double post, when I edited it, I obviously hit the wrong button.
