Looking for rings/base recommendations for my new scope.

I have a Vortex Diamondback 3-9x40 on the way and want to go ahead and put a new base and set of rings on for it.

I have a 7mm 08 Remington 700.

I'm also thinking I should get medium size rings but not sure.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
BC

One other thing... It's kind of a budget build so I'm not looking to drop $100+ on the base and rings.

Thanks

I have the exact same scope. I chose Warne Permanent Attach steel rings in Medium height. I tried low but the bolt handle hits.

As for bases I went with Weaver two piece extended bases because the vortex has a short mounting area. The scope and bases haven't moved in 200 .243 rounds lol.

I like Talley Lightweight mounts if you're going to lap them or DNZ lightweight if you don't plan to lap. Another very good no-lap option are Burris' Signature Zee rings on a Weaver base.  I can't tell you how high though without knowing the objective bell's diameter. I use all three.


A Nikon 2-8x32 in Talley Lightweights mounted on a Howa. They're the same mounts your rifle uses.

I've used the Warne Maximas in the past, but have started to move towards the Talley LW ring base combo.  They're about the same price (well under 100$).  I think The Talleys are available in an extended mount, but I'd check their website.  If you're looking to save weight, go with the Talleys.
