i'm about to purchase a rock river arms varmit a4 rifle in .223 for paper punching and varmits.  given great success with SS 10 x scopes in the past, i expect to purchase this scope for the new gun.  any suggestions regarding the best ring/base setup for this rig?  i've never owned anything but bolt actions in the past.  thanks for any recommendations in this regard.

I have the same rifle being used in the same manner you wish to use yours.  I put Rock Rivers Scout Rail under Leupold QRW Low Rings and a Mark 4 16x.  This set-up has worked great, the rifle is a real tack-driver.  Enjoy.

I went with the 20X SS but I use mine for paper punching only. At my age I need all the help I can get. If I was going to hunt with it I would choose the 10X. The RRA upper shoots a lot better than I do. Even with me shooting, with the right ammo, sub 1" 5 shot groups are the norm.

The best mount for a flattop AR15 is made by LaRue. I have them on mine.

They are costly, but you get what you pay for. jmo
