    I am thinking about putting burris signature or burris signature zee rings on my new rem 700 ltr. I am really at a loss at this scope mounting stuff and was hoping for some help:

    I plan on doing mostly target shooting out to about 700 yards max plus some prairie dog hunting. I generally take good care of my equipment but don't baby anything either.

    I am mounting a Leupold Mark 4 PR 4.5x14 40mm obj scope with a 30mm tube.

    I plan on keeping the rifle pretty much stock until I practice enough to warrant making a full blown custom job of the rifle--about the time I imagine I'll need a new barrel. That's why I like the idea of the burris rings with their synthetic rings to suck up whatever slop there is in its factory status.

    1. Are the burris rings good and, if so, which ones--signature or signature zees.

    2. What base?? I want something strong and reliable. I will be doing a lot of prone shooting out to about 700 yards

    3. What height rings??

    I hope you guys can help as I can't wait to get to the range.

    I have only used the Burris mounts/ring system once, but can say that yes, they are good. I went with the Signature series (I think) and the insert kit (additional .005, .010 & .020" inserts). The bases and rings are the Dual dovetail design, which I personally like. I usually go with the Leupold Dual Dovetail 2 piece system but couldn't get it for rifle that I purchased so I went with Burris and have zero regrets. Hope this helps. Johnny K.
