    I have a Zeiss Conquest 3.5-10x50 1" tube I am going to mount on a Savage 111 LRH in .7mm RM. This will be a hunting rifle and I don't plan on shooting many shots over 300 yards. I was needing some advice on what base and rings I should go with. I have learned a lot from this site. Thanks in advance.

    I have the same setup except my Zeiss is a 4.5-14x50. I went with a 20 moa EGW 1 piece base and medium burris extreme tactical rings. I really like this setup but it does sit a little high for some peoples liking. In your situation you will only need the standard base and not the 20 moa. This is the only picture that I have and I hope it helps.

    Sweet set up! Thanks for the reply. I went with EGW for everything. Placed my order Wednesday. Do you have a suggestion for factory ammo for it? I will be using it for whitetail mainly. Thanks again.

    I am shooting the factory HSM ammo with the 168 gr VLD's. It groups decent at 100 yards. I would give a number but I never took the time to measure.
