I currently have Leupold standard rings and base on Rem 700 police with 8.5-25 Leupold Mark4 illuminated. This scope has a total of 75 MOA adjustment of which I find that I am a little over half way through the adjustment range if zeroed at 100 yds and up +16 MOA is about right at 600 yds which leaves me  another +16 MOA adjustment, and if my math is right I need about +23 MOA rather than +16MOA to be on at 1000. So I am looking at using Badger #30646 with 30MOA correction for the base and am trying to figure out which of their rings to use. The 50mm objective is 2.3in so half of that would be 1.15. Badger#30650 at 1.45 would have plenty of height but I'm wondering if Badger#30613 with 1.125 will work?  I know the math doesnt work but the front of the scope might hang over the front of the base giving the just a little bit of extra room to fit.

The other question is do I want the +30MOA base or the +20MOA base. 


I know - walk closer.

If your math is right the answer is easy. You need another 23moa so get the 30moa base. You should be able to get by with the highs. Maybe even the medium high's (30621). They wouldn't be the max 50's though. The badger base may raise it enough to clear with the medium highs. Just don't know for sure until you try it out.

With a 30 moa base Badger medium rings will clear a 50 mm objective.


If your shooting to a thousand try a zero at 250 yds (zero out the turrets) and obtain calibration data in 25 yd increments out to your desired range and from 250 yds back to 50 yds in 25 yd increments. Just remember to record in your data book.
