So I’ve finally decided I’m going to buy a Remington Model 700 Sendaro 2 in 300 WM. Now it’s time to look at a scope and how to mount it. With some practice I hope to be able to take a shot at around 700 yards. I was thinking of buying a Zeiss Conquest 4.5 – 14 with either a 44 or 50 mm objective lens. Any options on what size I should get? One thing I am a little confused about is the difference between the hunting and target turrets. To be honest I’ll be shooting more at a range then in the field but I want this gun to rock solid when it comes to field performance. I’ve read that the target turrets are prone to accidental movement when they are bumped or brush up against something. I am assuming though you have greater flexibility in adjusting the target turrets over the hunting ones. Can anyone shed some light on this one for me. Also, I’m planning on getting the Rapid Z 800 reticle but have also notice that the Mil Dot reticle is pretty popular. Is one a better with the hunting or target turrets? Now for mounting the scope I’m looking at the Burris XTR Xtreme Tactical Rings. These look very sturdy and have positive reviews. I’m going to be ordering my scope and mounts online so I want to make sure I order the right height. I read somewhere that the medium (1/2”) should work but I’ve heard the Zeiss scopes are a touch bulky so I want to make sure I that these will work together. I plan on mounting them to the gun with the Weaver-style steel base. I see that there are a bunch of options here. First off, which is better the one or two piece mounts? I also noticed you can get steel or aluminum. Will you get the same performance from the aluminum one? This gun is going to be heavy enough so if I can save a little weight it’s probably for the best. I’d hate to have to spend the summer in the gym just to pack my gun around in the fall. ha ha I know I’ve asked like 1000 questions but I would appreciate it if you’d help me out. Thanks in advance!
