I am new to the forum and have been doing quite a bit of reading the past few days. I have decided to purchase a SS10X42M in the upcoming weeks. I would liked to have purchased the USS416X56M, but since I'm new to this area of shooting have decided to go with the Super Sniper. I will take the money saved and put that into ammo, practice, and learing. I will be mounting the scope on a Remington 700P. I have absolutely no idea as to what I need to mount this on the rifle. I would like to go with Badger Ordnance equipment, but don't know what base or rings I need for the rifle.

Welcome to OT!!

 

Great rifle!

 

I love my Badger rings. They ARE worth the extra money, as far as I'm concerned.

 

I would recommend the Badger rail and medium rings.

 

(Low rings might work, but medium for sure.)

Hopefully some other SS gurus will chime in and correct me. Or you could shoot SWFA a email or phone call and they will square you away. 

 

If your 700P is a .308 Win. short action. .300 Win mag, go with the long action.

These are the mediums, but check and see if you can get away with the standard height rings. I like my scopes as low as I can get them.

Commence fire!!

You wont be sorry with the SS. They are great scopes at a great price. They run right with my MK IV's & cost about $1000 less.

 

The standard Badger rings will work just fine(they are what I run with a +20 moa base). Reguardless of what action or caliber you have I'd recommend the +20 moa base. It is the same price as the standard base and eventually you will end up shooting far enough to require it. Better to get it now rather than buying a base twice.

 

Good shooting post a photo when you get her done.

 

Joe

PGW Defence Technologies Inc. Has some nice tactical rings and picatinny rails in steel or titanium, and the titanium are not much more than the badger rings/rails I would sudgest a +20 minute 7 inch rail and medium hight rings

Might also consider a Warne mount and rings. I have on my LTR 223 and they are very nice. Also significantly less than Warne. For my needs (not dragging my rifle through the jungle) the Warne seems very sturdy.

The +20 moa badger base is a good choice as are the medium badger rings. The +30 moa might be a better   consideration if you are using .308 at 1000 + yds.

 

http://www.snipercentral.com/308.htm

 

If your dead on at 600 yds and you have  say 250 inches bullet drop to get from 600 to 1000 yds.

 ( at 1000yds one MOA is 10 inches )  

You need 25MOA adjustment to get to 1000 yds. so to solve the problem you buy a + MOA base to give your scope some added adjustment.

 

That said if your shots are under 600 yds standard leupold rings and base or burris or warne will work but the boys are telling you sooner or later you may want the added adjustment range ...so measure twice cut once.

OK Y'all,

  You've got me interested on this subject. I checked out the link on CT's post. This question may be dumb, but dumber not to ask, how does that base give you more MOA?

Not a dumb question at all.

 

The ANSWER, or the guy giving the answer is a little dumb though.

 

By using a 20 MOA rail and raising the rear of the scope, you are actually putting the scope closer to it's mechanical center.

Thus allowing you more elevation adjustment.     

 

Make sense??

Yes Sir!!

But, only if you have a LH action.

 

I'm running one now on my Remington 700 VSLH .308.

 

I like to refer to us as the "Special People"

I won't say what Dad called me.....
