I would suggest a different scope, first off. That particular Bushy only comes with a mil reticle and MOA adjustments. It is a much easier to learn if the scope has matching reticle and adjustments. I also find that a FFP scope is easier to deal with, as I don't have to worry what magnification the scope is on when using the reticle for wind holds, because it will always be "correct". I would suggest looking at scopes in the Vortex HS/T line, as they are don't cost much more and have better features.

 As far as getting the scope mounted, EGW makes a decent rail. I would suggest scope rings from TPS, Seekins, or Badger. I most instances aluminium works just as well as steel, as long as they from a good manufacturer. Most of the time you get what you pay for with rings. The exception to this rule is Talley ultra lights.
While not being "Tacti-cool" they perform as well as set-ups that cost hundreds more. The down side is, you can not introduce cant with them, so you have  more erector travel in your scope.
