What are you running for optics and what ring/base are you using to support it?
 
I am leaning toward a Leupold VX-III 8.5-25 X 50 because I can get it for a decent price (read: cheap). First choice is Schmidt & Bender; second choice IOR third choice Leupold.
 
Anyway, I am planning to use the Badger 20MOA short action base (It is a .308 by the way) and was contenplating which rings to go with. I think I want 30mm rings, as my #1 and #2 optics choice will need those, and the Badger rings come with 30mm-1" adapter rings already.
 
I understand and have read the sticky post on choosing rings and bases, and that is clear to me, but with the 20 minute angle on the base (aiming the objective down toward the barrel) what sort of adjustment should I make for this?
 
Obviously, I don't want the objective hitting the barel, but I also don't want the scope sky-high above the barrel either.
 
So, in conclusion, I am asking all the 700 P owners to quickly list their optic, base and ring combination and add any coments on fitment they might like to add.
 
Thanks in advance to everyone.
