Hello,

I'm doing my first SPS tactical build here. Just wanted some info/feedback on my set up here. My SPS Tactical is a .308 I'll make a list of parts here below:

EGW 15-20 MOA base.
Millet TRS-1 4-16x50 Scope with mil/mil.
Burris elite tactical rings XTR30mm.
Bell and Carson Medalist/tactical or classic.
Harris bipod.
'
I also have some questions regarding the mounting base. I found this from Sniper central.

"Here a little rule of thumb that I use for selecting the correct MOA for scope bases.

If your scope adjustments are:

> than 40 MOA < 60 MOA = 20 MOA base + Burris Signature Zee Rings; or 10 or 15 MOA base + any rings; or Zero MOA Base + Burris Signature Zee Rings.

> than 60 MOA < 85 MOA = 10, 15, or 20 MOA Base + any rings.

< than 85 MOA = zero MOA Base + any rings.

The above are for 308 win or 223 rifles. "

My scope has a MOA adjustment range of 65 so either 15-20 would be good. I'm not sure what the difference preference would be? Maybe someone can explain that to me.

Dude, I have a remington SPS tactical and just threw on a simmons 4-12 power scope. I am getting .5 moa groups. That is all I have to say.

Your list sounds good and always get a 20MOA base...

Check out the bushnell elite tactical series scopes cheap and great scopes for what you get.

20 moa base with any rings will work. your over thinking it. i have 20moa nightforce base and leupold QRW rings and have plenty of space to get out to 1000yds with my buckmaster.

For the same money I would buy egw O moa scope mount. burris tactical 30mm rings and SWFA 16X (rear focus) scope and you have 90 MOA total elevation adjustment that will take you out beyond 1000 yards (36-38 MOA 200-1000 yards comeup)

Scope is just powerful enough for silouette shooting 200-500 meters offhand, good for 100-200 paper punching or 10000 yard shooting prone.
