    So I'm sure this has been beaten like a dead horse but Tapatalk isn't working and searching on my phone is not as easy. But I'll ask anyways.

    So I'm picking up a new Remington 700 Monday (thanks Greg) and have almost everything I need for it to be ready. I need "rings" I believe it's called? I have an optic, rifle, bipod, ammo. Now I need the attachments for the optic. I don't need anything fancy but something say, sub $100. I did a search and Leupold shows up with a 2 piece. Is this any good or a 1 piece better? Sorry very new to bolt guns...

    Caliber is .308
    Optic Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50

    TIA

    I would recommend a 20 moa base and seekins precision rings (medium height). Also check out vortex precision matched rings. I have heard good things of those as well.

    Check out swfa.com, they have a great selection of bases and rings. They also have great customer service. I went with the egw hd 20moa and seekins medium rings.

    Not sure what the 30mm tube has to do with how far you can shoot but I would say it really depends on a lot of factors as to whether you need a 20 MOA base or not. The PST does not have a huge amount of travel so I would bet that without a 20 MOA base the max distance you could dial to would be a fair distance below 1000 yards (again depending on conditions, caliber, velocity, etc). In the end, there really isn't much down side to running a 20 MOA and then your options are covered.


    I also would recommend Seekins rings and bases. The Vortex precision matched rings are made by Seekins for Vortex. I bit more money than you are wanting to spend but you won't be replacing them with something better down the road.
