I bought one for my short action Remington 700 but cannot use it. When I snugged it down and mounted my 1" rings to lap them in, the front and rear rings were out of alignment about 0.060". It appears that when the Leupold Long Range base was made they simply made the rear portion thicker without changing the machining angle on the front portion. When you snug the base down on the receiver it bends the front down flat which pulls the rings out of alignment vertically with no way to make them parallel besides a serious amount of shimming behind the middle screw.
After seeing this, I tossed it in the scrap pile and bought a $110 Nightforce one piece long range base.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
