    So I'm new to long range shooting, and I am adding a very nice scope to my setup (Nightforce Benchrest 8-32x56x). My question is should I buy new rings and mounts for this (assuming so) and which would you all recommend?

    I plan on shooting 1,000m (probably won't be able to shoot further where im from, though I want to be prepared). So what would you guys recommend I get to satisfy this?

    I have did some research and looked into the Badger rings and mounts, a bit pricey but they seem to have serious reputation in the F-class behind them.

    These are what I have come up with, let me know what you think.

    (Badger Rings, 1.125")

    Badger Ordnance Picatinny-Style 30mm Max-50 Rings Matte

    (Badger Rail, 20moa)

    Badger Ordnance 1-Piece Maximized Picatinny-Style 20 MOA Elevated

    Also, I'm looking into what else I can do to squeeze more accuracy out of the gun. Currently I have self glass bed and floated the entire stock (Boy was that a project for someone who's never done it), but im still unsure on what else to prioritize after the scope is mounted.
