Default Base and Ring Suggestions

I started a thread a week or so ago regarding scope suggestions and now need base and ring opinions. They will go on a Remington Sendero 7mag and I think I'd like to go with a 1 piece picatinny rail this time. I don't plan on shooting long range so I don't think I need a rail with MOA built in? The scope tube diameter is 30mm. I'm looking for a good solid set-up, but I don't have the budget for the super high end mounts. Thanks in again!

Also I know I need a Remington 700 Long Action base, but the bases I'm seeing say for ADL or BDL and the Sendero is neither as far as I know. Does it matter?

Your rail needs to be for a Rem 700 LA.

ADL BDL doesn’t matter for mounts one piece base you will need LA for 7mm Remington Magnum

Leopold are good ring and bases that’s all I use on my Remingtons but, I personally do not like one piece bases because they get in the way when try to load the gun

No it doesnít matter. A 700LA action is the same across the board.

Tally one piece mount/rings is what I just put on my new to me rem 700. Their extended set gave me enough rear movement to get things right.

Pic rail is nice these days with scopes having shorter more compact main tubes. Allows a lot more versatility in where you place the rings to give the right eye relief. Saw a Trijicon option on ExpertVoice and they have Warne on there too, would think you could find one.

Nightforce 0 mao rail and nightfirce ultralight rings. Low rings will fit just right. You can save $30-40 and go with Leupold mark 4 rings as well.

Thanks for the suggestions thus far. Seems like most of the higher end rails are 15-20 MOA. Is there any negative to going with a 20 MOA rail if I don't necessarily need it? Is it noticeable to the eye when mounted?

It wonít hunt. Iíve had rifles with 20 MOA and ones without and canít tell a difference when looking through the scope. Only trouble you may run into is getting on paper. Your POI will be considerably higher if you start at 25-50 and walk it back. I would strongly recommend a good bore sight job before heading to the range.

You can also bore sight yourself if you can get the rifle completely steady on a rest. Pull the bolt out, look down the barrel from the butt stock, line the bore up with your target, then without moving the gun, look through the scope and adjust the crosshairs to the same mark you lined up in the bore. Takes some practice but itís the only way I do it on my bolt guns.

I use Warne bases and rings. Moderately priced and have been solid. They make both one and two piece bases for the Remington 700.

Leupold makes the Backcountry which are supposed to be stronger than Talley and look better too. I've been happy with Talley so far but just ordered a set of the Backcountry to try with a new scope.

Those Talley rings get my vote also. I used to use Holland's and prefer them, not sure if they are still available.

Talleys are awesome. If you were going to run a rail I run 20moa base (seekins, warne, or Talley). As far as rings I lean toward the seekins precision rings.

I'm a big fan of Redfield rings, and bases. You can pick up new old stock on ebay for cheap. I'm also a big fan of Leopold products.

I passed down my 300 Wby to my son a couple years ago. Leupold scope with Redfield base, scope hasn't been touched in exactly 30 years, same POI even with newer same type ammo. I told him I marked the scope caps and if they move he's not getting any more of my stuff when I die. Lol
