    Hi guys, I will be setting up a new rifle in the next couple of weeks and am trying to figure what bases and rings to put on it. I ordered a Remington sendero SFII in a 7mm Mag, and putting a Zeiss conquest 6.5-20x50 on top. I do plan on stretching the legs on the gun, do I need to look at getting a 20 moa base? Any info is greatly appreciated, and thank you in advance!!

    What height of rings were you able to use to get as low as possible?

    With a rail and a 50mm objective you can use lows and still have extra room. I would look at a 20 MOA steel TPS rail. they are pretty cheap and have an intregal recoil lug for added rigidity in your mount.

    Medium, only due to burris notlightbulb making a low signature ring/inserts.

    I've got the same rifle with Burris bases and Burris Signature rings. It works very well, and actually sighted in perfectly at 200 yards with the Zero size inserts. However, to get more adjustability from the scope I swapped the front inserts to a -20 (down, which means +20 up) and it works very well.
