    Hi

    I will make an order for a scope and rings to day but Im not sure what rings to chose. Leupold PRW or Burris Zee (Signature if they have them in stock, othervise just Zee)

    Scope will be a Leupold VX-III LRT 6.5-20x50 Fine Duplex, everything will be used on a 300wm.

    Any recomendations regarding the rings?

    Hi Thanks for answering.

    I have searched a little but cant find Signature rings in Medium 30mm
    on TOZ webpage. I have sent them an email and asked if they have it or not, ordinary Zee rings are listed tho.

    I have a 20 MOA picatinnybase so I dont need the Signature rings for the cant, but I like the plastic inserts that protects the scope.

    Go here:

    MidwayUSA - Burris 30mm Signature Zee Weaver-Style Rings Matte Medium

    P.S...

    You don't get "Cant" from 20° bases. You get "Taper"

    "Cant" is side to side rotation of a scope, causing tilt when shooting the rifle, and is ALWAYS BAD!!

    Hi Cat Shooter

    Sorry, my mistake, of course I meant taper. :)

    I orderd the signature rings. I hope medium rings together with my EGW picatinny base will clear the scope from the barrel.

    Remember... on a long range rig, you can NEVER have too much elevation!!

    Take all you can get, anyway you can get it!!

    Hi

    Thats true.
    Im a little worried about the ring height. The EGW base is 0.39" high.

    Burris Medium rings are .180" (measured from base of ring to bottom of scope tube. Measurement includes the insert that holds the tube.)

    High rings are .300" (measured from base of ring to bottom of scope tube. Measurement includes the insert that holds the tube.)

    Maybe High rings is what I should have orderd?

    Well... worst case is that you have to exchange them for the high ones.

    Hi

    Yes. I have done some calculations and if the barrel was not taperd at all I would have 1mm free space to the barrel. But with the thin original barrel on a 700 ADL I think it wount be a problem. The open sights has to be removed.

    That cant be a to hard operation?
