So I can see that there are quite a few posts on here concerning scope bases, but I’m still looking for some clarification. I just recently rebuilt a Remington 700 7mm Rem Mag and put a vortex viper PST 6-24x50 ffp on it. Probably more magnification than I need, but I got a screaming deal on the scope. From what I’ve read online it sounds like a 20 Moa base is impractical for hunting below 600 yards, but a couple threads on this forum make it sound like this might not be the case. The majority of my hunting will be inside 600 yards, but I live on a farm and have room to throw lead at a target just about as far as I want so of course I’m going to try for those 1000+ yard shots. Is putting a 20 Moa base on this gun for bench rest shooting going to make it impractical for the kind of hunting I want to do with it or not?
