You have a good rifle and a good scope there. Don't skrimp on cheap bases and rings. That said, you don't need to spend a fortune either. I have always gotten good results with Redfield, Leupold, Weaver, Burris and recently Badger mounts.The Badgers are heavy, military-duty, high precision mounts in a class by themselves.

They are probably a bit on the heavy side for most hunting rifles though. The Weavers are light but quite strong for their weight, and priced right. Some of their ring styles only have screws on one side, which causes the scope tube to rotate slightly as you tighten the top half of the ring down. This can be rather annoying, until you figure out how far to rotate it in the other direction, before you tighten the screws.

  It seems that for years many knowledgable shooters around here (Wisconsin) chose the Leupold /Redfield windage-adjustable ring-base systems with good results, but they are not to be recommended if you need to remove or swap scopes from one rifle to another. The Weaver/Picatinny slotted bases systems really shine in that regard. Burris makes good stuff too, in both the Weaver and the Leupold/Redfield styles. One really nice feature of the Burris Signature series rings is an ingenius bushing that allows perfect scope tube alignment despite any irregularities which may be present in the rifle's contour, etc.

  You should check out the Accessories & Mounts page on the SWFA store site to get a feel for the basic style you think you like and then ask more specific questions here to narrow down your choice. Good luck!

 I am going to really stick my neck out here by suggesting that all else being equal, your dad can probably use low rings while you may have to go with medium or high rings because of the 50 mm objective bell on your scope. A lot depends on the system you choose and the barrel contour of your respective firearms. It is usually preferable to mount as low as possible so you don't have to raise your head off the stock to see through the darn thing. It is good to try out a couple different height rings to see what works the best for you. Don't settle for less than a perfect fit. There are way too many good options available to compromise your setup. If a big objective bell forces you to mount high, put a cheek-pad on the stock to obtain cheekweld.  This is absolutely critical to fast and accurate field marksmanship.

Try this from Leupold....You can look for your weapon and find a scope thats 1" and is 50mm and it'll tell you what to get.....plus give you parts number if you decide to go with Leupold base and mounts.
