Just ordered the SS 10x42.  For my Remington 700 Tactical in 6.8 SPC with medium wt bbl I am thinking Leupold MK 4 one-piece base with medium MK 4 rings.

 

Any suggestions?

Yes, if your building a ninja gun, get the receiver screws redone to 8/40.

So I have heard this before.  This is my first Tactical and I am not a professional sniper or SWAT guy.  So are you saying that the standard (they do look weak) screws are not adequate?  The 6.8 has virtually no recoil.  If the standard screws and holes are not adequate, why did Remington use this size for a Tactical Model 700???

Is this the same size they use for all the Tactical 700s, including larger cal and magnums?

 

If so, one would think Remington would have fixed.  Or do they just figure that all high-speed tactical types will just spring for the rework?

 

Thx

None of the above. Like putting ford hubcaps on a chevy.

I suppose some reason could be given to the fact that tactical sniper rifles usually have massive scopes. and since the shear stress on the base scopes depends on the G-forces (recoil velocity) larger ones would be better. Personally I think it has to do with internet pornography. After all nowdays everyone is breathing hard over tactical rifles and everyone knows shooters like heavy screws.
