Default Scope Rings and Mounts for a Remington 700 SPS-V?

Just need some decent scope rings and bases recommendations for a Remington 700 SPS-V. The optic will be a Bushnell Elite 3200 10x. I'll most likely be upgrading the optics in a year or selling the whole package so would like something that'll last me that long until I upgrade everything related to the optics package.


I'd prefer to get it from Optics Planet since I'll be ordering the scope from there as well.

I'm using a Farrell 20moa one piece base and Burris Xtreme rings. But if not going the full tactical route, check out the Leupold rings and bases. Lots of options to choose from and good quality.

I understand that bases give you adjustability and stability but what is that I need to look for in a ring?

Cheaper rings will more than likely be made from lesser quality materials and/or hardware and not held to the higher standards and tolerances of better ones. They may be softer, not as straight, come loose, and/or require more lapping to get straight.

So as long as I get a Leupold ring, I should be fine? I see that some of the rings are tied down with 4 screws and some just 2?

Actually...... Leupold has VARIOUS lines.... just like their scopes...

Their low priced stuff are jsut like their low priced scopes.... not as well built...

The Leupold TACTICAL rings are good stuff... along the line with other premium rings from Badger and alike...

Their $20 rings are just $20 rings... you get what you paid for.... that applies to this situation...

If you are thinking about going to upgrade to premium stuff later... you may as well just buy the premium base and rings now. Just go get some SEEKINGS, I think probably your best bet. Or if you are willing to pay, get badger's base and rings.

On the cheap (very cheap), burris signature zee rings and a b square weaver base. The farrel base is quite tall and may be too tall for your liking. The rings have inserts to tilt the scope and give you a bit more elevation. The Bushnell has plenty of that though.

If you want quality, just get seekins stuff. If you like quality and like to spend money, get badger. They're both excellent.

NO.
Bases should NOT provide any andjustability.
You want a solid steel single-piece base.
It should have 20 MOA of elevation built into it if you want to shoot past 600yds or so.

Rings should have at least 4 screws holding each cap down and heavy duty cross bolts with a hex nut that you can torque with a proper torque wrench that you will keep in your range bag.
