    I have a Ruger M77 Hawkeye in .338 win mag and I am getting ready to purchase a Leupold Mark 4 LR/T 6.5-20x50 M1. I understand that since it has a 30mm tube that I will probably have to get new scope rings. One of my friends has a remmy 700 and has a picatinny rail for a base with quick disconnect rings. I really like his set up. Can anyone recommend a top of the line set up for me? Thank you for the help

    Feenix....I see you have an old skeleton-stock 77.....I have 2 of them sitting around in the safe. Those are the only Ruger rifles I'll own, other than a #1. Mine are in 7mm RemMag and 7mm-08.

    Thank you feenix. Will I be able to use the quick disconnect style rings with this? If so, I imagine they have to be weaver or Burris? Are those bases and rings good quality? Thanks again
