I have seen all differnet brands ranging from $30 to $150 and I was woundering if any one had any suggestions on what brand to go for? I just got a remington 700 sps tactical. I plan on using a leupold vxii 40mm. Also would you suggest a high mount or low mount and the same question about the rings?
Thanks

Badger or Nightforce 20MOA is my choice...

you would want 20MOA if you want to use a lower cost scope (that don't have huge elevation adjustment) if you want to shoot distances (ie. 700yds+)

some examples:

low end = EGW(AL)

middle = TPS, Ken Farrell

hi-end = Badger, Nightforce, Seekins(AL)

EGW 20MOA with TPS or Seekins medium rings. Like Jicko said, Badger is nice but a little pricey.

Thanks guys.
I was thinking Badger since I just got the tactical knop fromm them and realy like the quality.
Would guys recommend a high or low mount?

Medium .885

But it also depend on what scope you use, ie. how big is the objective lens

Medium .885 will work for you.

EGW is solid for the price.

i have a Remmy700 with a leuppy vx-III 40mm scope and i have the Leuppy Mark4 steel rings (medium) and a Leuppy Mark4 20 moa base. cant go wrong with that set up. plenty of clearance for a 40mm objective.
