I'm looking to put a Bushnell Elite 6x-24x 40mm SF mil-dot scope onto 7mmMag long distance target/varmint Remington 700 rifle. As we all know, these 4200 scopes are short on elevation adjustment and are said to run out of clicks at about 600 yards or less. What have you guys been using?......What rings and/or bases should I buy to extend the range to say maybe 800 yards?

 
I normally prefer to use dual dovetail rings on all my scopes, but will compromise if necessary.

If money isn't an issue you might want to look at the Talley tactical set up.

How much more height do you need? 20mm will put you at exact centerline ,add another 3mm for clearance then adjust for base height. The swfa aluminum tall rings have over 1.5" height, will that be enough? Check the rings and bases subforum for more info
