I rarely post, but I do greatly appreciate the advice and knowledge from many on the OT. For the first time I will be mounting my scope on the rifle myself, and have a few questions for you guys. I will be mounting a Swaro Z3 3x9-36 on a Browning X-Bolt Micro in .308. What mounting set up would you guys recommend for the rifle and scope combo mentioned above? Also any general tips on scope mounting, common mistakes, and advice on tools would be of great help.

Thanks

Talley makes (for Browning) a neat mount. It's basically a two piece where the base and ring lower are one piece and the ring upper is the other. It's lightweight, strong and very functional. You are getting a great scope (I have it also) and will likely have a wonderful set-up. The low, 1" #930735 should work fine. If you have any questions just call SWFA... they are glad to help. It's ok to put a dab of blue lock-tite (or even clear fingernail polish) on the base screws but it's not needed on the upper ring-half screws. Torque to proper specs.
Good luck and welcome!!!

I'm going to agree with Bugs.
The Talley's (stock #930735) is going to work very well on you X-Bolt.


And you can order them here or give me a call. (972) 726-7348

Omaha,
 
I'm sure the Talley mounts listed above would work great but one other option that I personally use whenever possible are the Burris Signature rings.  They come in both the standard style and the dual dovetail (my set 'em and forget 'em choice).  The best thing about the Burris Signature rings is that they hove poly inserts that fit between the metal portion of the ring and the tube of the scope.  These grip the scope without any risk of leaving ring marks (great for if you ever switch the scope to another rig or try to sell it).  They also have the capability to create windage and/or elevation adjustments through the use of non-concentric inserts that can give you 5, 10 or 20 moa of adjustment.  The only drawback I have found to this setup is that medium is as low as they come.  With the large eyepiece sections on todays scopes getting the bolt to clear the eyepiece is as much of an issue as clearing the barrel though so mediums have worked great for me.  With the short bolt lift on the browning it may not present an issue anyway but it is also nice to have some extra room there if you are using any type of lens covers.
 
Let us know what you end up doing.
