Fella's;

 

I've got a Tikka Whitetail, with the longer magnum action.  I've about decided to put a Zeiss Conquest 3.5-10X on it.  However, I can't find the scope tube dimensions on the Zeiss site & therefore unsure of what mounts will work with this gun.  The caliber is .338 Winchester magnum & the recoil is noticable. 

 

In the past, I had a Leupold Vari-X III 3.5-10X 50mm on it & tried Talley, Burris, and Warne mounts.  I've sold the Leupold, it was stainless on a wood/blue gun & would like to get the mounts right the first time on this go-round.

 

The Talley's were not able to accomodate the short formula Leupold on the longer action.  The Burris windage rear could not stabilize the Leupold under recoil.  The Warne's did fit & hold, but are heavy & clunky looking.  As I live in the mountainous part of Montana, I'd like to do without the heavy Warne's, they must be close to a pound themselves.

Brady;

 

Thanks for the reply.  I did order & obtain both the Zeiss and the Talley lightweight rings.  The combination did mount correctly on the gun & looks great.  There isn't a lot of adjustment available fore & aft with this set-up, but it works fine for me.
