Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and was hoping to get some advice. I recently purchased a new rifle for deer hunting. I hunt big bean fields and power lines. My new rifle is a remington 700 long range 300 win mag. I've decided to go with a Swarovski z3 4 -12 ×50 brh scope.I would appreciate some suggestions for high quality rings and bases for this setup. Thank you very much.

Talley Light Weights....


I'm not sure if you need low or medium with a 50mm objective. 

Welcome to Optics Talk. Where in NC are you?

Thanks for the reply, I'm just outside of Goldsboro, near Newton Grove. I'm not sure if I need low,medium or high. Maybe someone will chime in with experience with this same setup. I'm in no hurry.

Ten four. 

I'm thinking mediums will do the trick. You can call Talley CS and ask them directly if you'd like. They are based in SC.

My recommendation would be Burris Signatures on that high end scope. Two reasons

1- No ring marks ever. Ring marks devalue a scope when you resell it.

2- If you are truly shooting long range you will need the offset inserts.

I have been using them since Burris came out with them, they are the best I have ever used.

Thanks for the reply Iowa Fox. Ring marks are a concern. I sure hope I like everything about the z3. My only concern is if I will be satisfied with the reticle.

I agree Talley's are the way to go.

You don't need offset rings for a hunting type scope with hunting turrets.  It has a bdc reticle and slanted base/rings will offer no benefit to that scope.  If it was a knob turning scope then by all means, but it is not.

I would not worry about rings marks with Talley light weights.  This Swaro was on a 7 lb 300 wsm for over 100 rounds with talley light weights.  There are no ring marks on it.  Swaro has a good finish and it you toque the rings properly there will be no issue.

Medium Signature Zees on a Farrell base would add some weight and allow flexibility on tilting the scope.

Many scopes on and off and NO ring marks with Talley LW's. I did have some minor ring marks with some Talley vertical split, QD rings on an IOR scope once. Never with the LW's. 

Probably the stinking IOR 30mm tube was out of spec.....Devil

IOR have a terrible finish.  Every IOR i ever owned, probably around 10 all got ring marks.

Is that Long Range Remmy the one with the M-40 type stock? That is one pretty rifle.

Both choices are good. I use and like both. if im concerned about weight the Talley are great. if weight is not an issue I like the Burris Signature either the ZEE on a rail or the dual dovetail. I tend to shy away from rear windage bases and the Signature by design take care of any mounting missalingment with the nylon inserts. Please let us know how you like the rifle. I've been eyeing the same one in 7mag.

Will do bg. I was seriously considering a 7 mag myself. Another question, wouldn't a one piece base help stiffen the action therefore possibly improving accuracy?

I would go with Conetrol, if they are back up and operational (the owner passed away in October, but last time I checked their site they said they were going to remain in business).  
Conetrol is a superior mounting system.

Conetrol is the best mount ever for patient people. I once had a gunsmith offer to let me have my rifle back with no charge if I would accept it without the scope mounted. I chuckled and asked him why he thought I brought it to him in the first place. Truly awesome mounts, though.

Conetrol are indeed outstanding. Elegant and superbly crafted. I didn't know George Miller died. Sad to hear that.

Yeah, the Conetrol website is dreadful... but their products are top notch. S&K mounts may be another choice to consider.

Talley LW's are very nice in both function and finish. Strong too. I also like their traditional mounting systems. The first picture is of the rings and bases after they came back from W.E. Birdsong with their Black-T finish.
