I did a search but did not find what I needed so. I need scope mounts for my Rem 700 SS R5 in .308. I have a Nightforce 5.5-22X50 scope. I have been told I need a 20MOA base as well as a flat base will do just fine. I would have thought that 100MOA elevation in my NF would be enough. I shoot  regularly to 400yds and occationally to 600yds. And I would like this set up to work for 1000yds.

Thanks for your help.

I would get the base at 20MOA just as an insurance thing. It is a good idea to have it and not need it then to find out that you do and don't.
Not stainless steel it's anodized aluminum. You can brush and polish it and coat with clear.

Thanks Cyborg,

Makes sense. Any thoughts on rings? I would like to keep the scope as low as possible.

On some applications a 30mm tube and 50mm Objective will sit just fine with low rings. I am not really sure about with yours. Check the difference between the top of your receiver and the barrel. I would get some cheap rings and see if the low will work or not before spending the money on some expensive rings. Or you could just go ahead and buy the mediums as they are most likely going to work just fine.
