I have a Weatherby Vanguard .338 win/mag. Does anyone know where I can find a one piece base?

Thanks Cliff

Talleys work great ..
 As an aside , I also have a 338 Vanguard and use Leupold Dual Dovetail (uses  same as Rem 700 bases)  mounts and no worries there.

Ok one more question I have noticed that most 1-piece tactical scope base that is made for the Remington 700 long action will fit the Weatherby vanguard. Is this true for most bases, if I buy one that is made for the Remington 700 it will probably fit my Weatherby?
 
Thanks
Cliff

Hi,
I have chosen the Ken Farrell custom solid base. I have a .338 win/mag that I would like to sight in for now at 100yrds but would like the option to go out to a 1000yrds.

What MOA should I use? I have an option of 20moa and I see that's fairly common.

Thanks again
Cliff

What scope??
 
Typically, a 20 MOA cant will work out to 1000 yards, depending on how much "up" the scope has.
If at first you don't secede...try..try again.

so should I just use a flat base. Will that work out to 1000yrds?

Thanks
Cliff

Sorry I forgot to mention that the scope I have has 65moa of adjustments. I am a little new with scopes so I don't really understand was base set up should I use, any suggestions?
Any opinion on base set up would help a lot.
Thanks again
Cliff
