Hey guys Brand new to your forum but Ive been Browsing around and seems like there are some people with good info on here. I am looking for a good set of base mounts for the R700. I just picked up a r700 VTR to give it a test. Seeing if its going to be a proven rifle like the following r700's. Im looking for a two set picatinny mount and as for rings I havent clue. Im looking into a Burris Fullfeild or a falcon menace Scope. I havent heard too much about burris's but id like any input from all of you.

Welcome to The OT.
 
Do you want a 1 piece or 2 piece base? I couldn't follow your post.
Some prefer a 1 piece rail like myself, some a 2 piece.

It looks like you are looking for a two piece picatinny mount.

There are a few options.

IOR mounts are pretty good:  http://www.swfa.com/pc-10246-443-ior-heavy-duty-tactical-2-piece-base.aspx
and have an extended version that some like:

Burris Xtreme Tactical bases are cheaper and seem decent:

If you decide to go with a one piece base, there are many good options in a number of price ranges.  Lately, I ahve been playing with a new Millett picatinny base on my Savage and it seems very well machined and inexpensive:

slightly more expensive Warne has been good for me as well:

Thanks, that helped alot. I was indeed talking about the two piece picatinny mount instead of the one piece. Dose anyone have and input or opinions on the two optics I listed?

 I've read favorable reviews on the Falcon scopes, but I think I would lean toward a Super Sniper from SWFA, for less money and (most likely) better Customer Service.
 Never been a fan of Burris, but some here like them a lot. 
 
 BTW, the first link Koshkin provided shows a photo of a two-piece base for something other than a 700 Remington, even though it's labeled as such, on the store website.
"fits 700 Remington".  ( No, they won't. One might, but they aren't a pair for Remington's receiver contours or hole spacing.)

Burris makes good scopes.  They have some of the best buys in their price classes.  I like them.

Thanks Agian guys your help has been a help. Im gonna go with the Sniper Central.com 22MOA Canted bases. As for the scope im waiting for the release of the 4-14x44mm Menace by falcon optics. Cant wait to put this all together and see how the end results come out. Also looking into a Mcmillan a5 stock. Over all it should be a  proven rifle.
