    You can buy Warne Maximas style with and without the sidelevers, both are very reliable and strong. Also two piece steel Weaver style bases and very good sloped one piece Picatinny Tactical style bases from Warne. I have used Warnes for years, plus similar very good mounts from Talley and they work.

    Marlow243 ,
    I have a 6.5 - 20 x 50 , 30mm tube on my 700 VSSF with medium height Maxima rings part #214 . About 4 - 5mm of barrel clearance . Could be a problem with a very heavy , straight taper barrel though . /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif
