I have a Sako A7 Long Range 300 WinMag, and it came with an aluminum base mounted on it (I assume 0 MOA elevation). Unsure about 20MOA/0MOA elevation scope rings and base, both short and long range?
I intend to get either Vortex Viper PST 6x24x50 or BURRIS XTR II 5X-25X-50MM.
After I hone my skills , knowledge, and feel for shooting short range under 500 yards (for hunting also), I would like to move out to 1000 in the future.
I understand having a 20MOA elevation base is key for long range, but am worried that it might be a problem for shorter distances, such as enough vertical adjustment the scope has.
I am also worried about how high the rings must be to accommodate for the 50mm diameter scope.
So, my question is, what mid $ range base (if necessary to get a new one), and mid $ range scope rings would you suggest?
I apologize if this is a commonly asked question, this seemed somewhat complex and other internet sources could not answer my questions.
Please and Thank You for help in advance
