    I would go talley if not opti lock. We have had a lot of inconsistencies with the leupold stuff. Talley would be a low ring.

    Many are surprised to discover that there is a windage taper milled into the Sako dovetails that tends to determine the fore and aft positioning of the front ring. I have used Sako ringmounts but actually prefer the old school Redfield bases and rings. 11mm from the top of the action to the bottom of the scope tube is just right with my one inch Swarovski in Sako rings...

    Talleys are what I used on my Sakos. I sold the leupolds that came with one of them They weren't very solid appearing to me.
