Morning
I am really sorry if this has been covered before....I am looking to get back into shooting after a few years away and I just wanted some advice on an all purpose mount.
 
I was thinking about a .308 calibre - I would so seriously love a TRG 22, but may have to settle for a Tikka T3 as the TRG retails for over $4k in Oz.
 
The problem is I want to do a bit of everything with the rifle...From hunting in Scrub for feral pigs and goats, ultimately to 1000yard shooting for leisure. I know you can get 20/30moa rails to assist scopes for that range, but will I then pay a price for close up shooting. Possible scope choices would be a S&B pm II or a Nightforce scope as they seem to have the best reviews and should last a lifetime if looked after.
 
Apologies if it is a lame question to those experienced hands, but I have been away for a while.

Any of the PMII's or Nightforces I can think of will be just fine with a 20 MOA rail, even up close.  Depending upon the exact model you shouldn't need a 20 MOA rail to get to 1000 it's not a bad idea to get one "just in case" you really want to stretch the limits one day. 

The only problem you want to watch out for is scopes with limited adjustment sometimes have difficulty getting down to a 100 yd zero with a 20, or especially 30 MOA base.  And sometimes the optical degradation is noticeable being so far away from optical center.  So with some scopes you're better off with a flat base, especially if you don't do any long range stuff.

But with the scopes you mentioned, none of that should be a problem.

Typically if you get a scope with 65 MOA or more elevation and a 20 MOA base you will be able to get a 100 yard zero and be able to reach 1000 yards.  This is not an always as every setup can be a little different, but in most cases this will work. 

If you get a Nightforce, or Leupold, or IOR, then this will work for sure.
