Good morning guys newbie here. I just purchased a Browning Eclipse 270 WSM. If your not familiar with this gun it comes from the factory with a bull barrel. I have a Vortex Viper 6.5-20x50 30mm that i want to put on it and i need  recommendations on which scope rings and base to use. I will be using it to hunt and do a little range shooting out to about 600 yards. Im new to long range shooting and im confussed on which base to use ie-0 MOA base or 20 MOA base and ring height.

You shouldn't need a 20 moa rail for 600 yards with that scope and that cartridge.

Medium or high rings, depending on the specific rings chosen. Some mediums are higher than other highs.

Call 972-SCOPE-IT.  they will set you straight on exactly what you need.  I would recommend a 0MOA base though.  Then again for that set up I'd probably put on a set of Talley Lightweight Aluminum Rings in High and be done.
