Hi gang,

 

I just picked up a Rem 700LTR and the seller indicated that it is presently wearing a 40-minute base.  I actually pick the rifle up today and am going to ask him about it (mainly the mfg as he initially said it was a Badger). 

 

I also just bought a 10X SS from SWFA for the new rifle, and was wondering if the SS has the range of adjustment in elevation that would be necessary to still allow me to shoot from a 100 meter zero using a 40-minute base?  This will be a 1000-meter rifle.

 

I am probably going to go with Warne low rings (I assume mediums aren't necessary for 42mm objective) as I can't quite afford the Badgers after all this spending.

 

Thanks for any input on the capabilities of the SS vs. the base.

The SS can reach 1000 with a 0moa Base...  If anything I would go with a 20moa, in case you get a different scope in the future...

Thanks for the info.  What I am trying to figure out is if I can keep the 40MOA base on the rifle (not have to buy/change parts already) and still have the SS function from 100 meters on out with that particular base.
