Scope Mount for Custom Hunting Rifle


Well-Known Member
Jan 5, 2004
I’m putting together a custom hunting rifle....basic spec is Win 70 long in 300 Sherman/280 Ackley with 24” Brux #3(NECG fr & rr barrel sights) in a McMillan Supergrade with a Bushnell Nitro 4-16 if the current design sticks....

I’m looking looking for a reasonably light ring & base that is quick detachable and not covering the ejection port.

I think my choices are Talley, Leupold QRW or Warne....Have I missed an option? I’m thinking Warne right now due to experience...should I be considering something else? Also, how is return to 0 on all 3 when using matched base & rings?
