    I would buy a Ken Farrell base and Warne rings. They will set you back less than the Badgers and will serve you just as well!!!

    Can you get more than 20 MOA?

    What about Nightforce`s rings and bases?

    Badger is currently working on a base with more MOA. FWIW, you don't need any more than 20 for your set-up.

    I just read that badger alså has a 40 MOA base on their product page, but i sure dont need all that much.

    Its true, 20 will get me far enough.

    Thanks for all Your help guys!

    www.DDRoss.com

    D.D. Ross sells what they call the #648 Optical Platform;

    -User installed ( no clipslot needed in receiver )
    -30 MOA taper
    -Civilian version of the base they sold to equip all M40-A3 SWS in the USMC inventory.
    -M1913 Picatinney rail standard.
    -Can be special ordered to be cut down to a lower taper if needed.

    They also produce trigger guards ( also used on the M40-A3 ) handstop rails, heavy duty scope rings, recoil lugs and slings specifically designed for accuracy rifles that need to be rugged and reliable.

    Hello Everybody!!
    Take a look at NEAR MANUFACTURING Tactical Base.It gives you 25moa and if you wanted more,they could make it.I have one on my 338-378 and I could have odered it with up to 60moa.They are located in Canada and Brownells carry a limited amount of they're bases.They are every bit as good as Badger and alot better than most others.

    Why not use NF rings and base? I read that there's a lot U guys having a NF scope. But U are not using their rings/bases. Is there anything wrong with them?
